G2X TAKE: This three-year task is for the ongoing support of the PIT platform, which was created as part of the Health Care Efficiency (HCE) Initiative and includes a set of Fraud Waste and Abuse (FWA) tools.
The incumbent on this is By Light. While this is not very large at two years and $3.5M, this the type of task that will draw interest from large and small firms who support CMS as they look for any way to break into VA. The new administration has put FWA near the very top of his list as a way of showing results, making this contract a bit more attractive.
