G2X TAKE: These two highly successful T4NG primes, one SDVOSB and one large, have both quietly added former VA IT leaders to their team, as they bolster their staff to meet current needs and position for FY18.
Having added more than $1B in new IT contracts in FY17 alone, Booz Allen clearly has plenty of staffing needs. One recent hire of note is the addition of Steve Kastin, former VA Chief Healthcare IT Strategist for Enterprise Infrastructure Engineering. In his new role as Senior Executive Advisor and Chief Medical Informatics Officer, it would be surprising if he is not involved in at least one of the major new wins this group has picked up at VA, to include a $750M Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM) PMO Support Task award and a $410M VA Benefits Integration Platform (BIP) Support task.
SDVOSB, TISTA who has had a tremendous year at VA and across the broader Federal Health sector, has recruited former VA ADCIO for Project Management, Keith Seaman, to serve as their new Executive Vice President for Federal Strategic Engagement. We should also note that this group added Industry Veteran, Jill Jakober Carney as their new Executive Vice President of Operations.
