DHA looks to close gaps in database

The Defense Health Agency is looking to close some gaps in how it moves and manages transactional data as part of the Defense Medical Human Resources Systems – Internet.

Known as DMHRSi, the system integrates human resources data from a variety of sources, centralizing manpower, personnel, labor cost assignment, education and training, and personnel readiness.

The system contains information on active duty, Guard, Reserve, federal civilian, contractors and volunteers.

DHMHRSi also has a data repository that users query daily. Right now, data is pulled from the repository and pushed into other parts of DMHRSi.

But DHA says there is a reporting gap between the two, according to a new request for information.

To close that gap, the agency is looking for commercial real-time transactional reporting tool that can meet multiple requirements such as:

  • Being operating system and hardware agnostic but still be certified to work on the operating system and hardware used by DMHRSi
  • IPv6 compatible
  • An intuitive user interface so non-technical personnel can establish and conduct reporting
  • Design and run complex reports that have minimal impact on system resources
  • Scalable and capable of operating in a distributed architecture

In all, there are more than 30 requirements that DHA is looking for.

The RFI includes the usual caveats about the notice not being a solicitation, nor does it mean there will be a contract. But if there is a contract, it will be a competitive one.

Responses are due Feb. 8.

The deadline for questions is Jan. 17 and the questions and answers will be posted Jan. 22.
