A handful of Washington-area defense and national-security contractors are among the winners of 15 contracts—with a total combined value of $12 billion—that make up the U.S. Veterans Affairs Department's massive Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology program, also known as T4.
SRA, Booz Allen Hamilton, Harris Corp. among VA T4 contract winners
According to a VA fact sheet prepared for Congress and e-mailed to Modern Healthcare, the T4 contracts aim to provide "a broad range of information technology and telecommunication services," including program management, strategy planning, cybersecurity, training, and systems and software engineering. Seven of the 15 awards were reserved for veteran-owned small businesses, according to the VA. There were more than 90 bidders, the VA noted.
Among the companies claiming part of the giant prize are SRA International, Fairfax, Va., and Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, Va. Both SRA and Booz Allen issued news releases about their awards, although neither company described specific assignments or offered details about their projects' estimated dollar values. T4 contracts have a base period of five years and are described as "indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity" with a "ceiling of $12 billion."
Other T4 contract winners with extensive defense and national-security portfolios include Harris Corp., Melbourne, Fla.; and CACI-ISS, Chantilly, Va.
The VA announced last week it had awarded 14 of 15 T4 contracts but was withholding the names of the winning firms pending resolution of a dispute between bidders vying for the 15th contract. That dispute was headed to the Government Accountability Office on administrative appeal, according to the VA statement.
Additional contract winners, according to the VA, are Creative Computing Solutions, Rockville, Md.; Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Services, Herndon, Va.; ASM Research, Fairfax; Systems Made Simple, Syracuse, N.Y.; Firstview Federal TS, Rockville; Information Innovators, Springfield, Va.; 7 Delta, Fulton, Md.; By Light, Arlington, Va.; Technatomy Corp., Fairfax; and Adams Communications & Engineering Technology, Waldorf, Md.
