Alion Science and Technology has won a task order totalling $4.7 million from the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide IT product development and implementation.
The McLean-based firm will provide the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Health Administration in collaborative checkpoints for early identification and validation of critical business requirements and traceability throughout the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).
“Alion’s role is to provide independent insight into VHA’s IT projects, ” said Damon Griggs, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Business Solutions Group.
Alion will also continue to monitor the performance of the IT products after deployment.
“We will perform a functional review on products that will focus on issues and risks that may impede full product adoption and readiness. We will also define strategies to resolve or mitigate any issues before a system is deployed to end users.
