VA awards contract to DoxSys

The Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded a $4.7 million contract to Bethesda, Md.-based DoxSys Inc. to provide hardware and software support services at the VA's Financial Services Center in Austin, Texas.

The contract, awarded through a competitive bidding process, will provide technical support for the center, which pays the bills electronically for all 172 VA hospitals, cemeteries and regional facilities nationwide.

In fiscal 1999, the center wrote $8.5 billion in electronic checks and handled more than 600,000 electronic documents, according to Don McLaughlin, the center's assistant director for systems support services.

Previously, DoxSys had a five-year contract with VA that expired in October. That program set up an automated system for the veterans' agency, terminating the world of paper invoices for the department.

Once a paper-intensive system, all invoices and correspondence relating to payments now are scanned into the VA system and handled electronically at the service center—the VA's sole financial services operations that employs 200 workers.

DoxSys, a $15 million company that automates systems for the federal government, is a leader in integrating and implementing imaging, document management and workflow solutions.
