The Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Program Contracting Activity Central (PCAC) anticipates soliciting quotes and subsequently awarding a Single Award, Firm-Fixed-Price contract for non-personal services to support the Office of Health Informatics (OHI) Data Quality Program.
The Contractor shall provide support services to the Business Requirements and Data Analysis Group (BDAG) Program, and in turn the Data Quality Program that include reviewing business and technical project documents for proper incorporation of defined requirements to implement data quality and identity management; developing, and refining enterprise requirements, use cases, and business rules used to implement and support data quality; planning and executing test plans for user acceptance testing (UAT) of software products; providing business and technical expertise in the areas of data quality and identity management; and performing data quality analysis and reporting in support of implementations and updates to the matching algorithm and other software.
The VA has utilized the Master Person Index (MPI) as its enterprise Identity Management solution since 1998. With the evolution of the MPI, the matching algorithm used within the MPI for matching and duplicate detection was “modernized” to a commercial industry-standard probabilistic matching algorithm, which is maintained and configured by the Government, in conjunction with the algorithm vender technical staff.
In support of this contract, the contractor shall perform analysis and reporting on identity and person matching data, from the existing Government-owned systems, in order to provide guidance and recommendations related to configuration and implementation of the probabilistic matching algorithm, in support of Data Quality goals. The contractor shall coordinate with internal and external business and technical staff, in order to obtain access to or extracts of existing data for analysis from Government-owned systems, including the Master Person Index (MPI) and other reporting databases, such as the Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW), Administrative Data Repository (ADR), EHR systems and others. Analysis will be conducted for the purposes of providing information needed to configure and implement matching algorithm software and for identity management issues identification and resolution functionality and will be performed using standard analysis tools, such as Structured Query Language (SQL) and Tools for Oracle Application Development (TOAD)…
