EDS lends a hand to student-aid subcontract

Electronic Data Systems Corp. has won a 10-year, $110 million subcontract from Pearson Government Solutions Inc., to support the consolidation of the Education Department's student aid systems, the company announced today.

Under the subcontract, EDS of Plano, Texas, will provide application architecture, enterprise application integration, data strategy, software development, business process re-engineering, business intelligence, imaging and data capture services.

EDS also will support development of an enterprise solution for a flexible, component-based architecture following Service Oriented Architecture design principles.

Pearson Government Solution of Arlington, Va., is the prime contractor on the Education Department Federal Student Aid Front End Business Integration initiative. The company was hired to design, build and operate a new system to bring together services delivered through four separate contracts.

The new program will integrate the front end of the student-aid financial process and manage it in a more streamlined and cost-effective manner. In addition, it will improve customer services by simplifying and integrating service delivery.

EDS has more than 132,000 employees and annual sales of $20 billion. The company ranks No. 8 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
