SRA International, Inc., a leading provider of IT solutions and professional services to government organizations, today announced it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Office of Information and Technology (OIT) to provide software development support for its Enterprise Veteran Self-Service Portal Platform (EVSSPP). The one-year contract carries a total value of $20.4 million and all options have been exercised.
“SRA has been a key partner to the Veterans Administration for many years,” said Health Group Senior Vice President Tom Nixon. “This collaborative effort is particularly exciting and will make important services more available and easily accessible to veterans who have served our country so admirably.”
Currently managed as separate projects, VA’s portals share very similar technology and architecture. SRA will lead the integration of VA portals into a single platform with an aim to reduce costs and deliver a consistent user experience for veterans and veterans service organizations (VSOs).
As the steward for all VA’s information technology assets and resources, OIT delivers available, adaptable, secure and cost-effective technology services to the VA. A crucially important element of the agency’s technology plan is the ability to enable convenient seamless interactions between the VA, veterans, service members, veterans service organizations, and the community of VA business partners and stakeholders providing services for the veteran. EVSSPP streamlines access by providing a fully functional and secure entry point to web-based systems for information and services accessed by, and on behalf of, veterans and the VA. SRA will lead the software development effort to provide key improvements to the technology and delivery of these systems.
