The winnowing has begun on the Veterans Affairs’ huge IT modernization contract.

The agency has begun informing bidders on who has made the cut and who hasn’t, the agency said.

The Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology contract is a five-year, $15 billion program to meet a wide range of VA’s IT modernization goals. The agency expects to award 15 contracts, including four for service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses and three for veteran-owned small businesses.

“T4 is a major tool in the transformation of VA into a 21st century organization,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki in a statement. “These contracts will enable VA to acquire services for information technology programs that will help ensure timely delivery of health care and benefits to our Veterans.”
