Northrop Grumman Corp. will help the Office of Personnel Management electronically convert and store federal employee records under a five-year follow-on blanket purchase agreement that could be worth as much as $100 million.
The Enterprise Human Resource Integration (EHRI) program is modernizing the way federal employees access and use human resource information through an online electronic Official Personnel Folder (eOPF) application, analytical tools and a governmentwide data warehouse, Northrop said in an announcement today.
The eOPF includes document scanning, indexing, digitization and Web-enabled access to more than 1 million federal civilian employees.
Northrop Grumman’s Information Systems sector will provide project management, systems integration, life cycle development support and systems engineering services to support the implementation and maintenance of eOPFs.
To date, the company has completed implementation of approximately 1 million records at more than 35 agencies, making EHRI one of the largest electronic records initiatives in the federal government, the announcement said.
The eOPF is built on Northrop Grumman’s e.POWER software platform for business process management and automation.
EHRI’s eOPF results in significant cost savings, the announcement said. It also better protects the rights and benefits of the federal workforce, enables the electronic transfer of HR data throughout the federal sector, and streamlines and improves governmentwide reporting and data analyses.
Northrop Grumman’s teammate on the contract is Anacomp, of San Diego.
Northrop Grumman Corp., of Los Angeles, ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
