RESTON, Va., June 3 /PRNewswire/ --  High Performance Technologies, Inc., has been awarded the contract for Veterans Relationship Management (VRM) Project Monitoring and Control (PM&C) for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This new contract has a potential value of $115 million and includes a base task of one year, with the option for four additional years.

HPTi will provide technical program management to move VRM programs and projects through the new Project Management Accountability System. The system is used to monitor VA IT programs and help them succeed. Through this project, HPTi will help VRM with the next generation of Veteran-centric IT solutions -- solutions such as advanced voice-recognition tools for caller identification and routing, enhanced web self-services tools, and integrated desktop interfaces for VA's Public Contact Representatives. HPTi will also strengthen the VA's information infrastructure through developing robust knowledge management systems and enhancing VA's common IT services.

HPTi's teammates on the new contract include ICF International, Whitney Bradley & Brown, M Squared Strategies, and the RayGroup.

The VA is dedicated to its vision of providing veterans the world-class benefits and services they have earned -- and to do so by adhering to the highest standards of compassion, commitment, excellence, professionalism, integrity, accountability, and stewardship.  More than just a practical obligation, this is a moral mandate to provide quality health services to the men and women who serve our nation. As President Obama stated on May 5, "…our nation's commitment to our veterans and their families . . . is a sacred trust, and upholding that trust is a moral obligation."

"HPTi is proud to be selected to serve our veterans and to add our expertise and leadership to the successful design and development of these critical IT programs under the purview of the VRM PC&M program," said HPTi President Tim Keenan. "The successful infusion of the architecture, systems engineering, and programmatic discipline of our program architecture approach will ensure our veterans access to their benefits at a service level previously unavailable to them."

Founded in 1991, HPTi provides advanced technology services to the federal government. Its core capabilities are computational science, enterprise technology and planning, systems architecture and engineering, secure mission software development, and knowledge discovery and visualization. www.hpti.com.
