Former VA Under Secretary for Benefits forms new JV with DSS

G2X TAKE: This news is not going to come as a surprise to many who cover VA as this has not been a big secret, but the formal LinkedIn announcement this week of this Joint Venture made up of two companies led by Veterans, employing Veterans, and serving Veterans, their families and Survivors, is worth noting as this new SDVOSB and WOSB Joint Venture is certain to be a popular teaming partner and new competitor on the VA IT and consulting landscape. 

All in VETS (AIV), a CVE-Certified SDVOSB, and WOSB Joint Venture between All in Solutions (AIS) and DSS, added two employees to their LinkedIn Profile this week. The two additions are current CEO/President of All In Solutions and former Department of Veterans Affairs Under Secretary for Benefits (CEO for Benefits), Allison Hickey, and current Sr. Capture Manager at DSS, Inc and Business Development, Melinda Pitchford

Per the new All in VETS profile “AIV serves as the prime for this work, providing Project Management services and helping across all areas of the contract. AIV members’ employees are already badged and cleared, with inside knowledge of VA culture, VistA systems and infrastructure, and Cerner knowledge to the program Day One.”

The timing of this new entity in relation to the T4NG On-Ramp will not be lost on anyone.
