Why HP

For more than 15 years, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has chosen HP Enterprise Services as a trusted partner for its technology needs. We’ve collaborated on some of the agency’s most critical initiatives, including multiple IT solutions with the Veterans Health Affairs (VHA) and VA Office of Information and Technology (OIT).

Our support to VA as a prime contractor demonstrates a record of consistency and duration that very few, if any, other prime contractors can match. Specific highlights of this long-term relationship include:

  • multiple contracts with VA, including more than 30 active task orders and dozens of ongoing projects, many of which are relevant to T4
  • direct involvement in enhancing and or maintaining approximately 90 percent of all VistA applications, including CISS, plus maintenance of VistA’s technical infrastructure
  • a successful record of delivering on more than a dozen Program Management Accountability System (PMAS) increments while embedded in key, enterprise-level process teams
  • current management of more than 20 PMAS compliant projects to ProPath defined universal project milestones (UPMs)

As the world’s largest full-service technology company, HP and our partners can deliver more to VA than any other IT team - including best-in-class capabilities and practices, innovation, and a distinct heritage of demonstrated service delivery excellence. Unique capabilities that only the HP Team can offer include:

  • our knowledge of VA and public sector to ensure compliance with VA standards and policies
  • proven management processes to deliver competencies that span all functional areas
  • best practices from across government and commercial domains
  • extensive IDIQ management experience to ensure successful use of the T4 vehicle
  • industry-recognized management techniques and methodologies, available through HP’s EDGE framework tailored for VA projects, to efficiently manage task orders

We’re deeply committed to VA and its success. Our long, consistent, and successful delivery record, the span and depth of our team’s VA knowledge, and our extensive participation in enterprise-level process teams establish HP as the best-value, lowest-risk, trusted partner of choice.
