Wednesday, September 07, 2011
Force 3, delivering innovative data center, unified communications and security solutions, today announced that it is part of a team awarded an estimated $12 billion contract with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) for the Transformation Twenty One Total Technology Program (T4). Force 3’s teaming partner, Creative Computing Solutions, Inc. (CCSi) is one of only fifteen prime contractors selected to participate in this important program.
The VA created T4 as a tool to close gaps in acquiring IT services to integrate systems, networks and software.
The VA T4 contract is a services contract vehicle designed to meet a wide range of the VA's IT modernization goals, including solutions and services. Contractors will be providing program management, strategy, enterprise architecture and planning support; systems and software engineering; software demonstration and deployment; testing and evaluation; enterprise network services; IT management; cyber security; and more.
CCSi is a woman-owned leading provider of project management, enterprise systems engineering, and security and information assurance solutions to the federal government. Force 3 looks forward to working with CCSi and the Department of Veterans Affairs on the T4 project,” said Trevia Martin, Senior Vice President of Federal Services at Force 3. “The T4 services contract vehicle will allow Force 3 to proactively develop a strategy to take our solutions to the VA and implement them quicker due to the reduced procurement lead times.”
The VA T4 services contract vehicle is scheduled to run from July 2011 to July 2016.
“This five-year program will help VA transform into a 21st century organization and enable us to deliver the high-quality health care, benefits, and services Veterans have earned,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “In addition, it opens an opportunity for Veterans in business to grow and claim a share of VA’s business.”
