“This activity proposes to negotiate a non-competitive award (sole-source) with Blue Water Thinking LLC (BWT), a verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), for professional support services to assist the GOAL Office with the continued assessment of its GAO HRL strategic direction and plans. The Contractor requirements include supporting GAO HRL efforts for VA Health Care to meet criteria for removal from the GAO High Risk List.

“The proposed action is to provide a continuation of professional support services targeted towards the ultimate removal of Veterans Health Care from all areas of the GAO HRL. The HRL initiative requires dedicated resources to perform the various tasks that will accomplish key milestones in support of removal of Areas of Concern from the HRL. If the appropriate number and types of resources are not applied directly to these efforts, the HRL removal efforts will fall behind schedule and potentially fail…”

“VA requires professional support services to assist HRL GOAL Office with the implementation and continued assessment of its GAO HRL strategic direction and concept of operations plan. The contractor will provide strategic support services including the development of strategies, recommendations, and methodologies to address GAO HRL identified deficiencies for VHA’s integrated health care system.
