May 22, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a national security, health and engineering solutions company, was awarded a prime contract to provide systems integration support and services to the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy (CMOP). The single-award firm-fixed-price (FFP) contract has a one-year base period of performance, two one-year options, and a total contract value of approximately $12 million, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Tucson, Ariz.

CMOP is a network of seven highly-automated production facilities that employ a mixture of robotic devices, conveyor systems, and human factors to accurately fill and ship nearly 117 million prescriptions per year for healthcare beneficiaries, including our nation's veterans, active duty service members, and patients eligible for care through Indian Health Service.

Under the contract, Leidos will provide systems integration support and software development, modification, documentation, and support services for the seven facilities, including: maintenance to all software at the individual CMOP facilities used to interface with local production equipment and processes; enhancement and integration support of software services that improve performance, control and documentation prior to and after the standard production system is implemented; and the development and execution of a long-term plan to provide standardization and stability to the production systems for all seven CMOPs.

"We are pleased to support the VA Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy operations," said Steve Comber, president of Leidos Health. "Leidos is excited to address the VA's initiatives to standardize and modernize the CMOP national and local operations, and help usher in the next-generation CMOP infrastructure that will deliver excellent service to many of our veterans, military service members, and their families."
