Peraton has won a contract to support the Defense Manpower Data Center in its effort to modernize computer applications.
DMDC assesses entitlements for more than 40 million service members, retirees, family members and other beneficiaries. The contract represents new work for the company, and is worth up to $130 million over five years.
Under the Entitlements and Benefits Application Modernization and Sustainment program, Peraton will work with DMDC to update a portfolio of nearly 100 applications that support real-time determination of eligibility for benefits including medical, dental, life insurance, education and commissary programs.
“Peraton’s history of scaling complex programs for DMDC minimizes the learning curve for this program and will provide service members and their dependents with a fast, secure way to obtain the benefits they deserve,” said Jeffrey Bohling, president of Peraton’s defense solutions sector.
The benefit determination and delivery program represents another anchor agreement between Peraton and DMDC. The company has supported DMDC since the 1980s and is currently engaged with several other mission-essential DMDC programs.
