CACI International Inc. recently announced that it has received a task order award to provide core development support on the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER) program. This $14 million contract has a work period of 18-months (one base year plus a six-month option).
CACI’s responsibilities include building the Data Access Service (DAS), a key component of VLER that will electronically move data throughout various VA and external systems, helping veterans receive their benefits faster.
This task order is one of 25 that CACI has received under the $91 million VLER prime contract, which the company announced it had won in October 2010.
“The continuing expansion of CACI’s business with the Department of Veterans Affairs demonstrates the success of our strategy to focus on the high-growth healthcare market area,” said Ken Asbury, president and CEO of CACI. “Our work for the VA opens up tremendous growth potential by positioning us to support greater interoperability for electronic health record systems — a priority for the federal government.”
This new work further expands CACI’s presence in its Healthcare market area. VLER consolidates electronic health and benefits records of Armed Forces members for exchange within the VA and externally to the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies.
“This latest task order on the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record program leverages CACI’s expertise in electronic medical and benefits records integration and data interoperability,” said John Mengucci, COO and president of U.S. Operations at CACI. “Our support will enable servicemen and women to quickly and accurately access their health and benefits records as they transition into civilian life.”
