Phase 1 Pilot at Spokane, Washington (henceforth referred to as Spokane) and,

VHA envisions an advanced level of interoperability with mobile applications that will allow Veterans to conveniently transact with the Federal Government.

The Contractor shall provide, host, and deploy a commercially available Patient Check-in Mobile App solution that is VA approved across the VA enterprise.

The Contractor shall also provide a comprehensive range of project management services and services that facilitate strategic decisions for VA’s deployment of the accepted Mobile App solution throughout the enterprise.

The Contractor shall provide the following services for the Government:

Provide all services necessary to configure, take live and maintain the mobile application(s) described in this PWS.

Present annual training to designated VA staff related to functionality, user interface, owner updates, data transfer and reporting for the mobile application(s).

Supply annual hosting, updating, and maintenance for the mobile application(s) over the contract period.

The Contractor shall have the single point of responsibility for the Mobile App.

Due to the dependencies to the Cerner Millennium Cerner Suite Platform and VistA as outlined in Section 5.2.1 of the Base period requirement, the number of optional task(s) that can be completed is uncertain.
