Harris Corporation Awarded $30.5 Million Contract to Develop and Deploy Federated Data Repository for Department of Veterans Affairs

MELBOURNE, Fla. & WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a 4.5-year, $30.5 million contract, structured as an 18-month base contract with three option years. This program, awarded in June, develops a centralized network monitoring system that will help the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) better manage its computer network systems and more quickly find and fix problems as they arise.

“The EMF FDR project will help ensure that the VA systems serving our veterans with the best possible healthcare are online and ready to go at all times”

Under the Enterprise Management Foundation Federated Data Repository (EMF FDR) contract, Harris will develop and deploy a system that provides a unified, federated view of data repositories the VA has distributed throughout the U.S. The VA currently monitors these regional Managed Data Repositories using manual reports, which often leads to delays in addressing critical system problems.

The Harris system will provide the centralized management that is needed for a more accurate, automated reporting of the network’s status, and will allow the VA to perform predictive analysis and modeling to identify areas of potential concern. Harris will use a set of commercial-off-the-shelf components to reduce the need for custom development and reduce maintenance costs.

“With a network as large and as diverse as the VA’s, it is critically important that we have the ability to identify and address problems within our network in a timely, efficient manner wherever and whenever they arise,” said Jeff Shyshka, deputy assistant secretary of Enterprise Operations and Field Development for the VA. “A federated repository combining all enterprise-wide system data will allow us to provide the kind of quality assurance our veterans deserve.”

“The EMF FDR project will help ensure that the VA systems serving our veterans with the best possible healthcare are online and ready to go at all times,” said Jim Traficant, president, Harris Healthcare. “Harris is providing the VA with the ability to quickly and seamlessly identify and solve system problems when they arise and maintain its invaluable service to our veterans.”

The Harris team, along with subcontractors 4Points Technologies, 7 Delta, Inc., EM&I, iTKO, LSI, NIS Solutions, and Qbase LLC will provide engineering support services and ensure interoperability among existing applications. Harris has successfully integrated and modernized federated IT infrastructures of several government clients, including the Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S. Census Bureau.

A nationally recognized leader in federal healthcare IT integration, Harris also offers commercial providers a full range of interoperability solutions, including IT infrastructure and management, clinical workflow and analytics, health information exchange, and imaging. Harris solutions improve healthcare quality, safety, efficiency, cost and outcomes by ensuring that the right information travels, with security and privacy, to the right person, at the right time, on the right device, at the point of care.
