Unnamed industry sources who spoke with Nextgov.com said a successful contracting bid will demonstrate an ability to effectively manage the 190 million prescription transactions the two departments handle each year.

Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) won a 51-month contract worth $95 million in October 2010 to run the current Military Health System‘s pharmacy data transaction service, which TRICARE manages.
