Renewal: 2nd of 2, 3/2/2016 through 3/1/2017

Service/Product Changes: 
None. Leidos expertise remains a competitive advantage.
Sole Source Status: 
Yes, remains a sole source as the Healthquest software requires periodic upgrades and support for changes needed to comply with insurance and debt collection regulatory mandated changes.

Comments: The Healthquest system support is utilized for Hospital billing operations and remains a vital component of the daily patient billing, insurance and debt collection process. Regulatory/oversight changes are included as Healthquest upgrades. So this software is essential for financial operations at the Hospital.

First published Monday, December 19, 2011
The University awarded a contract for application analyst, programming and support to Science Applications International Corporation, McLean, VA, for an estimated $2,250,000.
This purchase is for continual application, programming and support services for the McKesson Healthquest product line. The contractor has been performing these services since 2007.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the current vendor has personnel that have been working at the Medical Center on the McKesson Healthquest product line for the past three years and those resources have gained knowledge and expertise about the unique functions and processes of our organization. There would be a significant loss of productivity and extra expense to have to train new resources on the processes of the organization.
