Mac Curtis

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has awarded Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) a potential five-year, $149 million task order to host three enterprise mainframe applications for the agency.

The company said Friday it will help process and manage Medicare Part A and Part B claims under the follow-on order that has one base year and four option years.

“We look forward to a long and continued partnership in supporting CMS and its mission to continuously improve delivery to beneficiaries and providers,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta and a four-time Wash100 winner.

Perspecta was formed in June upon the combination of DXC Technology‘s U.S. public sector business, Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions.

The former DXC public sector group was awarded an $81 million contract in late 2017 to support the CMS IT department.
