Pentagon Narrows Down List of Contenders for Multibillion-Dollar Health Records Contract - February 23, 2015, By Frank Konkel, NextGov
DHMSM Procurement Contracting Officer Matt Hudson confirmed to Nextgov the Pentagon has set a range that eliminates some teams; however, he could not confirm which due to the sensitive nature of the acquisition process. However, multiple sources with knowledge of the competitive range confirm that three bidding teams — Computer Sciences Corp., partnered with HP and EHR developer Allscripts; Leidos and Accenture Federal partnered with Cerner; and IBM and Epic Systems — fall within the competitive range
G2X TAKE: For those that followed the discussion last week, this was not news, but it is always good to get confirmation. At this point there is believed to be three bidders remaining. No word yet as to whether InterSystems or PWC will challenge the down-select. We do know that at least one of the firms has been silent in communication with partners as they are almost certainly evaluating their next move… or non-move.
