Accenture Federal Arm, Mitre Help VA Implement Colmery Act IT Updates; Robert Wilkie Quoted

Accenture Federal Services and Mitre have helped the Department of Veterans Affairs modernize information technology systems for processing education benefits for military veterans.

VA said Monday the Veterans Benefits Administration and its two industry partners collaborated on software development, integration, testing, communications and training work to comply with the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017, also known as the Forever GI Bill.

“These IT changes improve our ability to deliver education benefits to GI Bill students.” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “As VA works to modernize processes, this milestone is an important step in our digital transformation journey — merging people, procedures and technology.”

The partnership used a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to implement the IT updates across multiple systems and department offices.
