Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has won a five-year, $1.1 billion task order to support the Department of Veterans Affairs in benefits processing, management and delivery efforts, G2Xchange Health reported Wednesday.
The company will help with VA’s Benefits Integration initiative, which focuses on reusing and expanding technologies used for the Veterans Benefits Management System.
The program aims to reduce the technology footprint of the Veterans Benefits Administration and National Cemetery Administration.
VA issued the Benefits Integrated Delivery task order under the Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology or T4NG indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which the agency uses to procure a wide range of information technology services.
The task order award follows Booz Allen’s move to acquire Liberty IT Solutions, a prime VA contractor that also participates in T4NG. The $725 million acquisition deal is expected to close in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022.
