A subsidiary business of public sector technology company Peraton has been awarded a potential 10-year, $2 billion contract to expedite and strengthen the Defense Health Agency’s military health database.
As a result of the single award, firm-fixed-price, blanket purchase agreement, Perspecta Enterprise Solutions will be the official enterprise information technology services integrator for the DHA and will regiment and standardize the organization’s IT processes, Peraton said Wednesday.
“Peraton is proud to continue our support to DHA and the Military Health System by leading the consolidation and transformation of its IT services,” remarked Tarik Reyes, president of the company’s global health and financial solutions sector.
The BPA tasks Perspecta’s team, along with project partner Capgemini Government Solutions, to arrange, synchronize and facilitate digital transformation services for the DHA. This will include making technological functions more efficient and mitigating expenses across the agency’s operations.
Perspecta expects their efforts to allow the DHA to evolve the medical health system to keep pace with the changing technology landscape and to allow for flexibility and future malleability. They also said they intend their modifications and installations to produce “an improved user experience and enhanced mission capabilities,” according to Reyes.
The award from the DHA comes on the heels of Perspecta’s $563 million task order from the Department of Defense in June. Through this contract, their specialists will aid the Cyber Crime Center by conducting digital forensics, multimedia forensics, technical solutions development, cyber analytics and vulnerability sharing support.
Peraton as a whole also landed a $51 million bridge contract from the DHA in May to continue its work helping the Global Service Center. This transition award was given to guarantee a stable progression to Perspecta’s receipt of the enterprise information technology services BPA.
