G2X TAKE: Building on joint-venture FedPoint‘s combined set of past experience that includes providing IV&V expertise to CMS and in support of the high profile NPPES program, this 8(a) EDWOSB JV software and IT services firm recently beat out five other bidders to be awarded this 5-year task to support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This task, with a potential total contract value of $10M, was awarded using CMS SPARC.
- Both JV partners, TurningPoint and DSFederal, are familiar partners to CMS, with this JV able to lay claim to a combined set of past performance and experience that includes TurningPoint’s past performance providing support for CMS’s award-winning National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) and leading IV&V support for numerous high-profile and mission critical systems.
- This is the first known CMS SPARC task award for this JV in support of CMS, but this group did pick up a task last year at HHS HRSA using this IDIQ to provide a comprehensive System and Organizational Assessment of the HRSA National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB).
- Outside of CMS SPARC, this JV, who is also an 8(a) STARS II Prime, has added recent task orders wins at NIH and NRC.
