General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) has won a potential $19.9 million contract to maintain and update systems for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to manage information on Medicare beneficiary eligibility.

The company will also update software for the Beneficiary Eligibility Suite of Systems Transactions program and link new and existing CMS systems under the five-year contract, General Dynamics said Tuesday.

“The systems maintained by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services are critical to ensuring beneficiaries receive accurate and efficient services, ” said Marcus Collier, senior vice president of the health and civilian solutions in General Dynamics’ information technology business unit.

CMS also selected the company to help manage programs, train and carry out special projects for the agency’s HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System.

Work will occur in the Baltimore area, where CMS is headquartered.
