Digital Management Awarded Four-Year Contract by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
Company’s Proven Performance Maintaining Mission-Critical Systems for Commercial and Federal Clients Key to Contract Win
Bethesda, MD—July 8, 2010—Digital Management, Inc. (www.digitalmanagement.com), a leading IT solutions and business strategy consulting firm, announced today it has been awarded a four-year contract for application management services for the Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) Payment Management System (PMS), a full-service grants payment and cash management system. The PMS supports more than 450 Federal government organizations and 50,000+ users worldwide who process more than $410 billion annually in Federal grant funds for 30,000+ grant recipients.
Digital Management will provide full application operations and maintenance services, as well as architect, design, and implement enhancements to the system.
The DHHS PMS is one of only two Federal civilian grants payment systems authorized by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for use across the Federal government. The fully automated system receives payment requests, edits them for accuracy and content, transmits the payment to either the Federal Reserve Bank or the U.S. Treasury for deposit into the grantee’s bank account, and records the payment transactions and corresponding disbursements to the appropriate accounts.
Ongoing dedication to flawless execution will be vital to the DHHS project, as thousands of people depend daily on the grants and disbursements processed by the PMS. DHHS selected Digital Management for its excellent track record of reliably processing mission critical data and applications for commercial and other government agencies, and for its high customer satisfaction ratings. Since 2006, for example, Digital Management has been responsible for managing and enhancing systems relied upon by the Department of Commerce for the release of monthly GDP and other vital economic statistics.
“We’re very proud to have been afforded this opportunity to support one of DHHS’s most vital systems.” said Jay Sunny Bajaj, Digital Management’s CEO. “A mission-critical financial system like the PMS requires zero tolerance for error or interruption. To ensure smooth operation of the PMS for the thousands of organizations and individuals who count on it, we have assembled a dedicated team of financial systems experts and implemented rigorous program management and product management operational processes and tools.”
