General Dynamics Information Technology has been awarded a new $65 million contract by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Enterprise Architecture Data Group to support its integrated data repository.
The 5-year contract has a 1-year base period, three 1-year and one 8-month option periods and one 4-month transition period.
“CMS has made incredible progress as it moves its enterprise systems to the cloud,” said Kamal Narang, vice president and general manager for GDIT’s federal health sector. “This is another step in improving the agency’s data accessibility and analysis capabilities.”
CMS maintains the largest volume of health care data files in the world. The repository is a high-volume data warehouse integrating claims, beneficiary and provider data sources to support various Medicare and Medicaid programs. Integrated data supports analytics across CMS, including insights into medical trends, health care costs, and fraud, waste and abuse.
Under this contract, GDIT will provide agile transformation and development, security and operations services in support of on-premise and cloud systems. GDIT will also support cloud migration and provide operations and maintenance services on both systems.
“As one of the largest providers of cloud services to CMS, we are proud to continue providing our cloud expertise to support their modernization journey,” Narang said.
The contract continues GDIT’s 40-year partnership with CMS. In September 2020, CMS chose GDIT to help the agency optimize its cloud technology investments and financial operations as it implements a mature multicloud environment.
