IBM has signed a $123 million contract to develop and implement a new enterprise human resource system for the Department of Veterans Affairs as the VA aims to centralize HR functions and processes across disparate sites.

The company aims to deliver the integrated HR system in a software-as-a-service model and to help the VA deploy self-service options for its managers and more than 300, 000 employees, IBM said Tuesday.

Eleven suppliers will work with IBM to deliver the system, intended to be based on Oracle PeopleSoft, Monster Government Solutions, IBM Rational, IBM InfoSphere and IBM Tivoli.

Anne Altman, general manager of IBM’s U.S. federal business, said the new system is intended to help the agency provide care and benefits to veterans and their families.

IBM aims to test the system in 2013, start deploying the system in January 2014 and fully implement the system by the end of 2015.
