The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded General Dynamics an $80 million contract to implement technology for the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP). The contract is with General Dynamics Information Technology's ViPS health IT subsidiary.

If all options are exercised during the four-year period of the agreement, General Dynamics Information Technology's Health IT Solutions sector will add more than 100 jobs as new IT workers develop and deploy the ERRP application and payment systems, as well as support all ERRP operational departments.

Under the terms of the agreement, the company is responsible for overall software design, development, and business application support. This includes a public website and educational outreach programs as well as data center infrastructure and administration.

Art Lehrer, VP and general manager of Health IT Solutions for General Dynamics Information Technology, said Thursday that IT will play an instrumental role in implementing healthcare reform legislation.

"The ERRP is a great example of how IT can support the healthcare system and represents one of the first major initiatives assigned to HHS under the new legislation," Lehrer said in a statement.
