Allegheny Science & Technology (AST) has been awarded a $3.7M contract to provide professional and technical support services to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Under the contract, AST will perform Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) support services to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). AST and strategic partner Healthcare Management Solutions LLC (HMS) will provide systematic testing and support required for the ongoing IT needs across the CMMI.
G2X TAKE: This is a good size contract performing testing and IV&V at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. This partnership between AST, as a growing 8a small business and HMS, a small women-owned company, could be a preview of partnering for CMS ESD II. The work they will perform provides exposure to a wide range of projects, software, and systems being utilized by CMMI. Both companies should be ones to watch at CMS in the months and years ahead.
