HP Selected Prime Contractor For Multibillion Dollar VA Contract

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has selected HP Enterprise Services as a prime contractor for the VA Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology (T4) program. HP Enterprise Services has also been awarded the Enrollment Modernization Technical Support task order under the Veterans Relationship Management (VRM) Information Technology Solutions and Support Services (ITSS) program contract vehicle.

As prime contractor for T4 and VRM, HP will support the agency’s enterprise-wide modernization to enable improved access to benefits and healthcare for veterans. Under the VA T4 multiple-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract, worth up to $12 billion, HP will compete for task orders to provide advanced technology solutions across multiple functional areas. The contract has a five-year base period and serves as a centralized source for the VA to buy a wide range of IT services.

Additionally, HP will compete for task orders under the $480 million VA VRM ITSS multiple-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract. This relationship management contract vehicle, which has a five-year base period, was developed to establish on-demand access to benefits information and services for veterans.

As a VRM ITSS contractor, HP was recently awarded an Enrollment Modernization Technical Support task order to provide applications development services. To ensure accurate and timely customer service for veterans, HP will implement an integrated IT infrastructure that will consolidate patient and military data. This consolidation will improve data sharing within the VA as well as with external departments such as the U.S. Department of Defense.
