Integic Corp. won a fee-for-services award estimated to be worth $75 million to provide a standardized electronic solution for personnel records for the Office of Personnel Management's Enterprise Human Resources Integration E-Gov initiative, the company said today.
Integic will provide its e.Power software and its Electronic Official Personnel Folder application, which offers a personnel record-keeping system that replaces paper files with electronic records. The application will eliminate reams of personnel forms and replace them with electronic documents.
With the solution, authorized government employees can access electronically personnel folders, and all federal workers can look at their own files from their home PCs, said Jim Fraley, Integic's vice president for civilian federal practice.
Awarded under a blanket purchase agreement, the work was will be performed on a fee-for-service basis. Various federal agencies will purchase the solution through OPM, which will work with Integic to implement it across the agencies. The contract's value could reach $75 million if the entire executive branch adopts the solution, Fraley said.
The average federal worker's folder contains at least 150 forms, all of which, except four, can be converted to electronic documents, Fraley said. The four documents that must be kept as hard copies require original signatures, he said.
Federal agencies filed about 5.4 million personnel-related papers in the first quarter of 2004, he said. Under the Enterprise Human Resource Integration E-Gov initiative, the Health and Human Services Department already has converted about 66,000 records to electronic format within six months, Fraley said.
Other federal agencies implementing the system are the State Department, Defense Department Education Activity, Defense Logistics Agency, Transportation Security Administration and the Coast Guard, Fraley said. The application will save the government more than $720 million over 10 years by eliminating some labor, facility and document duplication and mailing costs, he said.
The solution is "designed to transform how people do business today from a human-resources perspective for all the agencies," Fraley said. "It gives [them] access to human-resources information at a global level across government."
Based in Chantilly, Va., Integic develops software applications and business process management solutions that connect legacy computer systems to the Internet and other networks for clients in the federal market, healthcare, life sciences and other commercial industries.
The company employs more than 600 people and expects to post 2004 revenue of more than $170 million, Robert LaRose, Integic's chairman, president and chief executive, told Washington Technology last October. Integic ranks No. 59 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list of federal prime contractors.
