PSI Awarded USD 96M 5-year contract to provide Code Maintenance Services for DHSS

Planned Systems International, Inc. (PSI)—a respected provider of information technology (IT) solutions and services to the federal government—announced it has been awarded a $96 million, five-year, single award contract to provide high-quality code maintenance services for the updating, enhancement, repair, and testing of a variety of Military Health System (MHS) applications that are managed by the DHSS Program Executive Office.

DHSS has structured its operations and sustainment contracts into four distinct areas to improve accountability, align with Information Technology Service Management best practices, and to support the Department of Defense (DoD) objective to use a component- based contracting approach. This approach enables the Government to maintain strict change and configuration control over production environments. Under this contract, PSI and its team members will provide systems analysis, code maintenance and administration, programming of maintenance and enhancement requirements, change control, documentation, and information assurance and security activities in support of the DHSS applications, employing established IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL)-based processes and methodologies.

As part of the TRICARE Management Activity based in Falls Church, Virginia, the DHSS Program Executive Office provides clinical, logistics, resource management and decision support applications for the MHS which are critical to support warfighter readiness and optimize the delivery of health care to DoD active duty service members, retirees, and their dependents.

"We look forward to leveraging our ITIL expertise and continuing to provide this important customer with quality IT services results,” said PSI Chief Health Information Officer, Michael Snyder.

"We are proud of our Health IT Services Team,” said PSI CEO, Terry Lin. "The DHSS Code Maintenance award marks another milestone for our team, and is a tribute to PSI’s commitment to delivering quality services within the Federal health market and, specifically, for the MHS.”
