$623M Medical Appointment Scheduling System (MASS) Contract

VA Awards $623M Medical Appointment Scheduling System (MASS) Contract to SMS/Lockheed -– August 25, 2015, FBO

On August 24, 2015 the Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Acquisition Operations, Technology Acquisition Center located at 23 Christopher Way, Eatontown, New Jersey 07724, awarded a single-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ ) contract VA118-15-D-0129 on a hybrid firm-fixed-price and time-and-materials basis for the Medical Appointment Scheduling System (MASS) to Systems Made Simple (SMS), Inc. (a Lockheed Martin Company) 149 Northern Concourse, Syracuse, New York. MASS is one component of the Department’s strategy to provide state of the art electronic health record, scheduling, workflow management, and analytics capabilities to front line caregivers serving Veterans. MASS is expected to enhance and simplify the viewing and making of appointments convenient to Veterans, along with improving the coordination of care and appointment reminders. MASS will allow clinicians to better utilize rooms, support staff, and equipment in service of Veterans’ needs. The ordering period for the basic ID/IQ contract shall be 60 months from the effective date of award with two, 12-month optional ordering periods. The total contract value for ordering purposes including all Options: $623,582,928.88. The minimum contract guarantee is $100,000.00…

G2X TAKE: The award of this key component of the VA’’s strategy to provide EHR scheduling, workflow management, and analytics capabilities had been rumored for some time, but recent news had many questioning what direction the VA might take. The awardee for this contract, Systems Made Simple (SMS)/Lockheed Martin, has had a very good summer as they only recently learned that they received the nod for the highly visible $156M VistA Evolution PMO. A number of firms who bid MASS walked away from the PMO work for fear that they would be conflicted out, but apparently the VA is comfortable with the their mitigation plan SMS put in place. The real question is, with the T4NG awards on the near horizon, would any unhappy bidders be willing to rock the boat with a protest? If anyone doubted SMS/Lockheed would be a winner on T4NG before, these recent awards certainly show that they have the confidence of VA.
