The Enterprise Acquisition Solution integrated lets customers choose from standardized solicitation and award packages. It will interface with the man- datory Integrated Award Environment s System for Award Management. The Assisted Services Shared Infor- mation System is the result of a part- nership between GSA s IT operations and the Federal Acquisition Service s Assisted Acquisition Services.

It also integrates contracting with funds management to provide data for busi- ness decisions. --- Mark Rockwell Bid for military EHR includes VistA The Department of Veterans Affairs homegrown VistA electronic health record system will play a part in at least one proposal under the military s planned $11 billion health record mod- ernization contract.

According to a recent 18F blog post, the new tools are designed to streamline the request process and provide access to records and materials that have been released under previous FOIA requests. --- Mark Rockwell
