The 4.5 year contract has an 18-month base with three option years falling under the Enterprise Management Foundation Federated Data Repository contract program.
The program, originally awarded in June, calls for Harris to replace the current manual system and deploy a unified and federated view of VA data repositories.
Harris indicated the centralized management feature of the system will allow for accuracy, automated reports and make VA capable of performing predictive analysis. The system will include commercial-off-the-shelf components, as well.
In addition, Harris and its subcontractors will provide engineering support for application interoperability.
