Washington, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management today announced the third of three contracts to be awarded in support of OPM's transformation to an electronic retirement system.
OPM Director Linda M. Springer has announced the selection of Integic to convert paper retirement records into electronic files in the agency's massive Retirement Systems Modernization (RSM) project. Integic is a Chantilly, Virginia-based subsidiary of Northrop Grumman.
"With the selection of Integic, we have assembled a complete support team to bring us closer to transforming the Federal retirement system," Springer said. "The pieces are in place for us to move forward and provide employees with their full retirement pay in their first retirement check. Members of Congress have asked us to fix this problem, and we are well on our way to doing just that."
Integic will be responsible for converting retirement-related paper records into electronic data for all active Federal employees, which will feed into a technology solution. The technology will provide electronic online services and provide Federal employees, retirees and authorized agency officials with online access to their retirement records and benefits elections.
"This agreement will help OPM gather the data needed to electronically process retirement claims and introduce new planning tools for employees," Springer said. "With the ability to get a complete online view of retirement data, employees and HR officials will have an advantage when planning career milestones."
Hewitt Associates, LLC was awarded the first contract for Defined Benefits Technology Solution (DBTS), which will enable electronic processing of retirement claims. Accenture, LLP was awarded the second contract for Business Transformation (BT) and Information Technology (IT) to facilitate workforce transformation efforts as well as develop more efficient and effective business solutions and processes to enable OPM to maximize the new technological and customer service capabilities.
The base contract and the first option year are valued at $12.8 million (the base contract is three months and the first option year is 12 months). The second option year, if picked up by OPM, will cost an additional $14.5 million.
Our mission is to Recruit, Retain and Honor a World-Class Workforce to Serve the American People. OPM supports U.S. agencies with personnel services and policy leadership including staffing tools, guidance on labor-management relations and programs to improve work force performance.
