Twenty-one companies were awarded contracts totaling $22.3 billion as part of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology Next Generation (T4NG) acquisition program, the VA announced this week.

The T4NG contract awards are for information technology infrastructure improvements, cyber security and operations and network management as part of the department’s MyVA transformation effort, the federal agency said in a press release.

“This T4NG award is one of the many ways the Department is supporting the MyVA breakthrough initiatives by directly providing the technology that our veterans need to support the services they receive from VA,” Secretary Robert McDonald said in a statement. “The T4NG will help meet and strengthen VA’s long-term technology needs.”

Specifically, the VA said, the T4NG will deliver contractor-provided information technology service solutions, including technical support; program management; strategy planning; systems/software engineering; enterprise network engineering; cyber security; among other IT- and health-related IT requirements.

Ten awards were made to Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs), two awards were made to small businesses and nine awards were made to large businesses.

Among the companies included in the IT contracts were Accenture Federal Services, Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc., CACI-ISS, Inc., HMS Technologies and Kforce Government Solutions.
