Peraton has received a potential five-year, $130 million contract from the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) to support and modernize computer applications that assess entitlements for more than 40 million service members, retirees, family members and other beneficiaries, Peraton announced on Thursday.
“Peraton’s history of scaling complex programs for DMDC minimizes the learning curve for this program and will provide service members and their dependents with a fast, secure way to obtain the benefits they deserve,” said Jeffrey Bohling, president of Peraton’s Defense Solutions sector.
Peraton will work with DMDC to update a portfolio of nearly 100 applications that support real-time determination of eligibility for U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) benefits, including medical, dental, life insurance, education, and commissary programs.
The program also will enable on-base recreational activities and Exchange access. The application modernization work will be performed primarily in Seaside, California and Alexandria, Virginia.
