“ELLICOTT CITY, Md., July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Data Computer Corporation of America (DCCA), a veteran-owned information technology and engineering services company, today announced that it has been awarded a task order by the Defense Health Agency to provide Development and Operations support services to DHA’s Electronic Commerce System (ECS), an enterprise-wide system that supports TRICARE, the healthcare program of the Department of Defense.”
“DHA is accountable for the management and operation of the TRICARE program, ensuring the delivery of military health and private sector care services to beneficiaries, which includes active duty and retired military personnel, other uniformed service personnel, and their dependents. ECS, an integrated set of financial management, acquisition support, contract management, and contract operations applications, supports TRICARE’s procure-to-pay, budget-to-report, and order-to-cash processes.”
“Under the terms of the E-Commerce Operational Systems Support (EOSS) task order, DCCA will maintain and operate ECS and provide a wide-range of engineering and technical support, including engineering management, sustainment engineering, enhancement engineering, change and modernization engineering, and information assurance for the DHA ECS software applications and databases. Additionally, DCCA will provide cybersecurity services…” Read the full press release here.
G2X TAKE: Building on their track record of supporting Healthcare providers and payers such as Medicare and Medicaid, and the life science marketplace such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), this Veteran-owned Alliant SB and CMS SPARC Prime recently added this contract to maintain and operate ECS and to provide a wide range of engineering and technical support services.
A big win for the DCCA team and their President, Dave Bower, as they are able to combine their experience supporting DoD with their extensive Federal Health capabilities gained as a longtime partner to HHS and CMS.
DHA’s EOSS program has seen its fair share of acquisition and delivery challenges over the last few years, to include getting their last contract awarded and out of protest, opting to cancel that contract for performance and then facing a series of new challenges from the incumbent contractor, all of which were recently denied. Details are included here.
A fresh day and a fresh start for this initiative.
