Title: VHA Portfolio Management
April 2014 – Alexandria Virginia
PROJECT DETAILS: VHA has awarded a prime contract of Portfolio Management to BITS. Our team will be a key component in assisting HSPM to achieve the objectives and initiatives outlined in this year’s work plan. To ensure HSPM is successful in meeting their goals for 2014 and beyond, our team will work hand in hand with OIT to enhance Veterans’ health and health care delivery to Veterans. To do so, the team will provide support to the Office of Strategic Integration (OSI), Integrated Health Portfolio (IHP), VistA Modernization/Evolution, integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR), and Veterans Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER). Additionally, the team will assist health information technology (HIT) systems business owners by serving as a VHA liaison to OIT. Roles that the BITS Team will take on include leading strategy discussions, monitoring and reporting project status and issues, identifying interdependencies and cross-cutting issues, contributing to risk identification, triage and mitigation and participating on integrated project teams (IPTs). Major areas of interest in which we will support business owners include the modernization of Compensation and Pension Record Interchange (CAPRI), providing web and mobile solutions support and Business Capability Management Board (BCMB) support. To assist HSPM in keeping their HIT systems updated and running efficiently, our team will be assisting with software and tools deployment and test site implementation in support of critical VHA programs such as the Disability Exam Assessment Program (DEAP); BI Veteran Point of Service (VPS) and Voluntary Service System Kiosk Collaboration programs.
