The Department of Defense has awarded Vangent Inc. a $6.85 million, multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract that will provide a new, improved healthcare-procurement system for the department.
The award from DOD’s Tricare Management Activity will modernize the TMA procurement system and allow the agency to more efficiently manage contracts and acquire vital goods and services. Vangent will integrate software and hardware technology with human resources to deliver a commercial off-the-shelf program called PRISM. The new system will replace TMA’s current system, Comprizon.Buy.
Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Vangent said “Vangent is proud to support TMA in implementing a mission-critical procurement system which will become the primary contract management application to support its growing contract management activities. This project, which builds on Vangent’s support for TMA’s e-commerce system over the past two years, highlights our ability to integrate software and hardware technology with human resources to deliver a complete solution to meet our customers’ needs.”
