Alion to validate software for Veterans Affairs

Company to establish checkpoints for early identification and validation of critical business requirements

Alion Science and Technology Corp. will help the Veterans Affairs Department refine its process for software development and implementation under a $4.7 million contract.

Under the contract, Alion will assist the VA’s Office of Health Administration to establish checkpoints for early identification and validation of critical business requirements and throughout the software development life cycle, company officials said today.

Specifically, Alion will perform a functional review of products focusing on issues and risks that might impede product use and readiness, the officials said. Furthermore, the contractor will propose strategies designed to resolve or mitigate issues before a system is deployed.

Alion also will assess the continuing effectiveness of software products once they are deployed, the officials said.

The Office of Health Administration is in the Veterans Health Administration, the division responsible for implementing the department’s medical assistance program through its clinics, hospitals, medical centers and long-term health care facilities.

Alion ranks No. 39 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
