A Leidos subsidiary has won a potential three-year, $29 million task order to perform information technology services for the Veterans Affairs Department’s health data repositories.
Systems Made Simple will work to develop, maintain and implement new functionalities for the agency’s Repositories Program in efforts to share patient data and achieve health record interoperability between the VA, Defense Department and other agencies.
VA products covered under the task order include its Administrative Data Repository, Health Data Repository, VA/DoD Identity Repository and Veterans Information Solution.
The VA awarded the order through its 10-year, $22.3 billion Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology Next Generation vehicle for IT services that includes Systems Made Simple and dozens of other companies as awardees.
Systems Made Simple became part of Leidos when the company closed its acquisition of Lockheed Martin's IS&GS business in August.
The latest task order covers one base year and includes two one-year options that would extend the award to its full potential value. Work will take place in Salt Lake City.
