DOD cancels Tricare support RFQ

Tricare Theater Medical Information Program has withdrawn its request for help to transition its data and workstations.

Tricare said it cancelled the request for quote due to realignment of management duties within the organization. It published the notice last week at FebBizOpps.gov.

Tricare, the health plan for the Defense Department, shifted its management oversight of the Joint Patient Tracking Application to the Theater Medical Information Program-Joint Program Manager and from the Resource Information Technology Program Office. Tricare plans on revising the solicitation to reflect these changes within Tricare, and it is reviewing the acquisition of services. Tricare offered no details on when the revised solicitation would be available.

In addition to the data and workstation transition, vendors were asked in the October RFQ to support Transitional Minimized Differential Signaling/Joint Medical Workstations and the JPTA systems, which assist in war-related needs. But the Theater Medical Information Program-Joint Program Manager also will take over these duties.
