The Air Force today plans to award PureEdge Solutions Inc. a contract to test a software for converting the service’s 14,000 electronic forms into Extensible Markup Language.

The Washington company beat six competitors vying for the four-year, multimillion-dollar contract. If the technology passes an operational evaluation at 10 bases around the world, the XML forms will become the basis for the Air Force’s interactive e-business model.

More than 700,000 people are regular users of the service’s electronic forms. The PureEdge technology will move the forms from a various proprietary applications to XML.

An Air Force spokesman would not discuss the contract before its official announcement.
