The Department of Veterans Affairs will receive technical IT support from SAIC for its Blood Bank Program
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a task order from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Office of Information & Technology, Office of Enterprise Development to provide technical support to the agency's Blood Bank Program systems, managed by VA's Health Provider Systems Program Office. The task order has a one year base period of performance, four one-year options and total value of more than $14 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Chicago at the Hines VA Field Office. The task order was awarded under the US General Services Administration (GSA) Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70.

Under the task order, SAIC will support all development activities and resolve customer technical issues concerning software and associated interfaces. SAIC will also provide services in areas including IT product development, quality management, testing, and system administration. The Blood Bank Program supports clinicians in delivering patient care, and helps laboratory staff in providing safe blood transfusions, meeting blood bank regulatory agency requirements, and required hospital reporting services. The program is also responsible for maintaining and enhancing legacy software, including VistA (Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture) Blood Bank, VBECS (VistA Blood Establishment Computer Software), and vendor interface applications.

'Helping the VA support our country's Veterans is important to SAIC and it shows in the work that our people do. We are pleased to continue our support of this important customer by delivering solutions that help the VA Blood Bank Services team support their IT projects,' said Anthony Hess, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
