DoD Gives Industry Homework Around e-health Records, Intel IT Services

Jason Miller | Federal News Radio | October 9, 2013

Despite the government shutdown, the Defense Department is giving industry some homework.

DoD agencies released two notices to get industry motivated and excited about upcoming programs.

DoD's Health Management Systems Modernization Program issued a sources sought notice on seeking input from vendors on the current capabilities of electronic health records in the commercial market.

At the same time, the Defense Intelligence Agency issued a draft request for proposals in late September for the multiple-award Enhanced Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (E- SITE) contract-the follow-on to the $6.6 billion SITE acquisition awarded in May 2010 to 11 vendors.
