The Veterans Affairs Department has made six awards on a potential 10-year, $1 billion contract to support an integrated health care transformation effort across the agency.
Aptive HTG, HRS Consulting Inc., RB Management Consultants LLC, Sierra 7, Titan Alpha LLC and Trilogy Federal LLC were announced as awardees in a notice posted Monday to Beta.Sam.Gov.
Awardees will vie for task orders to work with the VA’s Veterans Health Administration on modernizing the health care system used by veterans. VHA received 10 bids for the contract, according to Federal Procurement Data System information.
Known as VHA Integrated Healthcare Transformation, the contract covers work across dozens of capability areas across three functional categories: health system transformation and innovation, implementation and operations support, and health care business enabling services.
Functional category one's work areas are project and program management, business process re-engineering, management and improvement, change management and strategic planning and communications. The second functional category covers studies and analyses, training development and delivery and policy research and development. Functional category three has supply chain management, human resources, acquisitions and financial services management.
Information technology development and administrative or clerical tasks that are not "strictly incidental" to the requirements are outside the scope of this contract, according to solicitation documents.
The contract was a brand new requirement and thus there were no incumbents.
