A research request was recently provided to OS AI from an equity backed mid-tier management consultancy that specializes in program integrity, looking for details related to a potential FY 2023 recompete of this 5-year Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services contract.  

We at OrangeSlices AI do believe in the need for more and better-informed competition, so provided below are 1) opportunity details provided by the requestor; 2) some key points of contact; 3) related pursuit/capture data; and 4) when possible, projected odds of this contract going back to the incumbent.  

Competitive Details (if known) related to the predecessor contract: 

  • Funding Agency: HHS / Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services  
  • Incumbent: KPMG    
  • Contract Vehicle: This was last competed using GSA FSS.  
  • Expected Competition Date: Fiscal Year 2023 – date tbd  
  • OS AI Note: The latest forecast shows the RFQ release date as March of 2023.  
  • Contract Details and Spend to Date for Award ID 75FCMC20F0076 

Note: The NAICS code used during the last competition was 541211 – Offices of Certified Public Accountants. This was used for the most recent and the predecessor contract.     

Scope: Expected to be 5-years in duration as part of the next contract, a focus of the Operated Risk Adjustment Data Validation Program Implementation Support contract is to develop and conduct RADV support on behalf of the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). 

Some of the known prior experience the incumbent brings at CMS in support of RADV includes: “Performing A-123 services over the Risk Adjustment, Reinsurance Risk Corridors, Data Collection Database, and Cost Sharing Reduction programs under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS); advising CMS on potential oversight strategies for the Risk Adjustment and Reinsurance programs including audit work program development based upon published regulations; drafting audit protocols and communications for the Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) process to external parties;  preparation of training materials and communications based upon the audit protocols and audit system for the RADV process to external parties; and preparation of Standard Operating Procedures for the CMS operational program.”
