IT product assessment contract for Department of Veteran Affairs


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Alion Science And Technology
: 12 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Alion will assess IT Products for operational readiness as part of a contract to support the Veterans Health Administration
Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $4.7 million task order from the Department of Veteran Affairs to support information technology (IT) product development and implementation.

Alion will assist the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Health Administration by establishing collaborative checkpoints for early identification and validation of critical business requirements and traceability throughout the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). Alion will also assess the ongoing effectiveness of IT products once they are deployed. The task order was awarded off of the General Services Administration MOBIS contract.

Alions role is to provide independent insight into VHAs IT projects, said Damon Griggs, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Business Solutions Group. We will perform a functional review on products that will focus on issues and risks that may impede full product adoption and readiness. We will also define strategies to resolve or mitigate any issues before a system is deployed to end users.

VHA is a division within the Department of Veteran Affairs responsible for implementing the VA medical assistance program through VA clinics, hospitals, medical centres and long-term healthcare facilities. VHAs Product Effectiveness mission is to ensure end users and veterans receive IT products and services that fully meet their needs and are ready to deploy.
