FAIRFAXVa. – General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a task order to provide operation and maintenance services in support of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Drug Data Processing System (DDPS) and the Payment Reconciliation System (PRS). The task order was awarded under the Enterprise Systems Development (ESD) contract and has a potential value of $47 million over five years if all options are exercised.

Under this contract, General Dynamics will support the DDPS mission to capture and maintain cost and utilization data related to Part D Prescription Drug Events, as well as associated demographic data for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  The company will provide analysis, design, development, testing, business intelligence and data analytic services so CMS can monitor, report, administer and reconcile the Prescription Drug Benefit program.  General Dynamics will continue to implement highly visible program enhancements, focusing on optimization and innovation to lower the total cost of ownership of the DDPS program and generate value for CMS.

“General Dynamics brings extensive experience with major, complex program enhancements to help the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services achieve its mission,” Marcus Collier, senior vice president of General Dynamics Information Technology’s Health and Civilian Solutions division. “We look forward to continuing our trusted partnership with CMS and supporting its efforts to ensure Medicare beneficiaries receive quality care.”

General Dynamics has delivered a range of health IT support to CMS for more than 30 years, including for the Health Care Quality Improvement System, the Chronic Condition Data Warehouse, the Retiree Drug Subsidy program, the Drug Data Processing System and the Payment Reconciliation System.  The company was also recently an awardee on the CMS Measure & Instrument Development and Support indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.
