Data Computer Corporation of America (DCCA), a veteran-owned information technology and engineering services company, today announced that it was awarded a professional services contract to provide engineering, analytics, and modernization services supporting the Automated Plan Payment System (APPS) for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). If all options are exercised, the total contract is approximately $13 million.
This new effort will validate more than $440 Billion in annual Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan payments, while simultaneously modernizing the system using human centered design methods, Agile, DevSecOps, and building on an AWS cloud-based infrastructure. DCCA will utilize our experience gained from performing recent similar system modernization and cloud migration projects at CMS and other government agencies.
“DCCA is excited to take on this effort. APPS is a critical system assuring the accuracy of billions of dollars in payments. We take pride in providing this support to CMS and our team of engineers look forward to modernizing APPS by leveraging advanced technologies and methods that will result in timely, accurate information for CMS and the APPS user community.” said David Bower, DCCA’s President and COO.
