Deltek Pulse: Health and human services month in review, September 2015

Posted by Olivia Hayden on October 6, 2015


The number of health and human services (HHS) solicitations held steady in September compared to most of the summer, but was considerably lower than June numbers. This makes sense since June marked the end of the fiscal year for the majority of states. Most September bids for HHS related to professional services, health services, and medical/scientific equipment, followed by social services and information technology.

Major solicitation releases in September can be broken down into the following areas:

Medicaid management information systems (MMIS)

  • The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) released the final Texas MMIS Takeover RFP. HHSC is seeking a qualified contractor to take over the operation of the Texas TMMIS and performance of claims administrator functions that support Texas’ medical benefit programs. The finalized RFP follows the draft RFP that was released in May 2015. Proposals are due on December 11.
