IT Consulting Firms Awarded Vaccine Tracking System Support Contract by Center for Disease Control and Prevention
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Berry Technology Solutions, LLC, an information technology consulting firm specializing in SAP implementations and support, today announced that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded the company a $14.3 million contract to support its Vaccine Tracking System (VTrckS).
Attain, LLC, a Vienna, Va.-based professional services company that provides management and IT consulting services with experience in SAP-based solutions for the public sector, will assist Berry Technology Solutions on the contract.
VTrckS is a web-based system developed in SAP that replaces current legacy systems and their limitations, delivers a scalable platform and enables central administration of vaccine management. Four pilot sites launched VTrckS in December 2010.
A component of the Vaccine Management Business Improvement Project (VMBIP), VTrckS represents the first ever comprehensive review of vaccine management, from purchase and order to distribution, and major effort to improve and integrate the entire publicly-funded vaccine supply chain.
The transition of the vaccine supply chain from multiple stand-alone computer applications and paper-based processes to the fully integrated VTrckS will improve efficiency and accountability through reduced manual processes; provide greater visibility to health care providers, grantees and CDC; and enable rapid response capabilities to changes in vaccine supply and demand at the national, state and local levels.
“BTS is honored to support the CDC and VTrckS,” said Demetrica Berry, Managing Director of Berry Technology Solutions. “Achieving the CDC’s vision of building and supporting programs such as VTrckS to protect public health through effective vaccine management and distribution is our top priority.”
Under the contract, Berry Technology Solutions and Attain will provide IT services including application management, maintenance and support; technical change management support; end-user support; user authentication and security services; interface monitoring and maintenance; solution testing and defect management; data conversion and master data maintenance; functional, configuration and development support; and project management services.
