General Dynamics’ information technology business will provide data integration and cloud migration support to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under a potential five-year, $65 million contract.
GDIT said Thursday it will support CMS’ Integrated Data Repository by providing Agile development and transformation services and deliver operations and maintenance to the agency’s cloud and on-premise platforms.
IDR is a data warehouse that integrates beneficiary, claims and provider data sources to support Medicare and Medicaid programs and can be used to provide insights into medical trends, health care costs and fraud.
Kamal Narang, vice president and general manager for GDIT’s federal health sector, said CMS has made progress in transitioning enterprise systems to the cloud and the contract marks another step in improving the agency’s data analysis and accessibility capabilities.
In November 2020, CMS awarded a task order to GDIT to implement a multicloud computing environment.
