The Labor Department plans to award a $74.2 million task order to Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) through the General Services Administration’s IT schedule to support DoL’s transition efforts to a shared service provider for financial management services, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.
Jason Miller writes that a DoL will contract directly with Booz Allen to help the department gain increased project management flexibility and oversight of its New Core Financial Management Systems.
The Transportation Department‘s Enterprise Service Center currently operates and maintains the system and Booz Allen provides operational support, the report said.
Under the potential three-year deal, Booz Allen will help decommission NCFMS by 2019 after DoL transitions to a federal shared service provider, Miller reports.
“DoL expects to gain $2.6 million in contract efficiency as compared to the DoT/ESC actual costs for the operation and maintenance from April 2015 through March 2016, ” DoL said in its justification for the planned sole-source award posted Friday.
Federal News Radio reported that NCFMS — which processes items such as invoices, payments and travel, requisition and obligation documents — is now “stabilized” to allow for the transition.
