CSRA is fighting for another shot at a $600 million contract to modernize a massive clinical information system used by the Defense Health Agency.
The contract for the "Armed Forces Health Longitudinal Technology Application – Composite Health Care System" has been held since 2011 by Leidos (or its predecessor Science Applications International Corp.).
Leidos won the recompete on Dec. 29 of last year.
CSRA filed its protest Jan. 8 to claim DOD failed to evaluate prices properly. A decision from the Government Accountability Office is expected by April 18.
The contract is for enhancements and sustainment services on the AHLTA system, which is used to provide users secure access to medical records. The access is needed from forward deployed locations back to large medical centers.
AHLTA is used to perform patient appointment processes and scheduling, ordering of laboratory testing, retrieve test results, authorize radiology procedures and prescribe medications.
DOD says it is the largest clinical information system in the world.
Leidos also holds the $4.3 billion DOD Healthcare Management Systems Modernization contract to modernize military health records.
