Leidos subsidiary wins nearly $1B health care contract
Calif.-based QTC Management will provide health services to military reserve members
A subsidiary company of Reston-based Fortune 500 government contractor Leidos Holdings Inc. won a U.S. Army contract potentially worth nearly $1 billion to provide commercial health services to all U.S. military reserve forces, Leidos announced this week.
Leidos acquired QTC Management Inc., which is based in San Dimos, California, in 2016.
The $999 million contract has a one-year base period followed by four one-year options, according to a statement released by Leidos. The contract, known as the Reserve Health Readiness Program III, will be performed at the Department of Defense’s reserve sites and medical contractors’ facilities across the nation.
Leidos will work with the Defense Health Agency program office to help ensure service members meet health requirements before, during and after deployment. The company will provide services that include medical, laboratory, customer service, IT infrastructure and security.
The component forces that will receive services include the Army Reserve and Army National Guard, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard, Navy Reserve, Marine Forces Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve, Active Components in remote areas and Department of Defense service civilians.
Leidos Health Group President Liz Porter said the company was ready to expand its health care work.
“We are excited to begin this contract and expand our health care offerings for all U.S. military reservists,” Porter said in a statement. “This work builds on our robust health delivery solutions, which are leading the industry in innovative care for active duty, reserve and veteran service members. America’s reserve component personnel stand ready to support and defend our nation when called upon. It’s our honor to support them.”
In June, Leidos won both a potential five-year, $470.7 million contract from the Department of Homeland Security and a potential $90 million contract from NASA. The DHS contract work is in support of checkpoint screening equipment deployment services for the Transportation Security Administration, and the NASA contract is to produce a laser air monitoring system the agency’s Orion spacecraft.
