Who’s still in the hunt for VA’s $12B prize?

Since the announcement last week about the Veterans Affairs Department narrowing the field of contenders for its $12 billion IT modernization contract, one question has been coming into our inboxes and Twitter feed: Who made the cut on the Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology program?

In its announcement about the T4 program, VA only said it was informing companies if they didn’t make the second round of the competition, but the department didn’t name names.

Thanks to a well-placed source, this is what we’ve learned so far:

Large companies making down-select:

  • Booz Allen Hamilton.
  • CCSi.
  • Harris.
  • SAIC.
  • Hewlett-Packard.
  • General Dynamics.
  • IBM.
  • Kforce Government Solutions Inc.
  • ASM Research.
  • Merlin Technical Solutions.
  • SRA International.
  • CACI International.

Probably of equal interest is the list of companies that didn’t make the down-select:

  • Northrop Grumman.
  • Computer Sciences Corp.
  • Lockheed Martin.
  • ICS-Net.
  • Government Business Solutions.
  • Dell.
  • L-3 Communications.
  • High Performance Technologies Inc.
  • Deloitte.

Several service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses and veteran-owned small business made the cut:

  • 7 Delta.
  • Systems Made Simple.
  • Information Innovators Inc.
  • By Light.
  • ITS.
  • CPS Ventures.
  • Standard Communications Inc.
  • Adam Communications & Engineering.

I’ve reached out to some of the companies to get reactions and insights. We’ll be working on a story on what companies did right and wrong to land on either side of the cut. There are some interesting comments so far. Stay tuned.

My understanding is they cannot protest until the awards are made later this month.
