The Defense Department has renewed a contract with Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. for $106 million to continue providing information management support to the Joint Requirements and Integration Office (JRIO).
Under the five-year contract, Booz Allen will provide support to the undersecretary of Defense for personnel and readiness, hone requirements for the Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System (DIMHRS), and provide outreach and change management functions under the Business Management and Modernization Program (BMMP).
With BMMP, Booz Allen will develop DOD architecture for human resource systems and use portfolio management to help the department 'manage systems to reduce redundancy,' according to a company release.
Booz Allen has supported JRIO since April 2002.
DIMHRS is a fully integrated personnel and pay system for all active-duty, Reserve and National Guard military units. When developed, it will be the largest human resources system in the world using commercial products. DIMHRS will replace 88 legacy systems across the services.
Analysts have estimated that DOD will spend between $500 million and $1.5 billion on DIMHRS development over eight years.
