Mitre Corp. has won a possible $1 billion contract to operate a Federally Funded Research and Development Center for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, reports The Washington Business Journal.

Currently, MITRE manages five FFRDC’s for agencies and government offices including the Defense Department, Federal Aviation Administration, Internal Revenue Service and Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

CMS and Mitre Corp. signed an initial $11.96 million delivery order on Sept. 27 as part of a $96 million planning order for the FFRDC.

“We look forward to partnering with CMS on improving critical health care programs that benefit so many Americans,” said Alfred Grasso, Mitre president and CEO.

The five-year award calls for Mitre to develop and manage long-term strategic plans, conduct special studies and recommend and implement cost-savings initiatives, according to the WBJ.

Mitre will also help CMS streamline its billing and eligibility systems, develop modern analytical capabilities, improve oversight of data and promote a patient-centered focus on prevention and wellness.
