As part of a recent announcement, the Department of Veterans Affairs detailed the potential for an upcoming requirement seeking a range of technical and programmatic support services related to the Enterprise Security Architecture (ESA), which aligns, supports, and enables the VA ESA Strategy to address the evolving threat landscape, support VA Business and IT Modernization initiatives, and take advantage of new and emerging security approaches and technologies.

One innovation area ESA is maturing by way of this contract is the Secure Health and Research Environment (SH&RE). SH&RE consists of three primary technologies: Blockchain for Identity and Access Management (IAM) enrichment and auditing; Artificial Intelligence (AI) for de-identification of health data; and Virtual Reality (VR) for 3D-rendered collaboration. The RFI, posted to SAM last week, can be found here.

The VA is well known for strongly encouraging cooperation with the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) community. As such, below we share the 15 most-viewed SDVOSB company profiles from the past week in relation to this opportunity and required set of capabilities, as viewed on the partner identification platform.

We will not speculate here as to why these specific firms are drawing the most eyeballs, but you can contact us here if you would like to receive our tip/cheat sheet outlining why some companies seem to gain more or less attention and/or if you want to make sure your company is added to the directory.

You can also check out a more detailed, and filterable, list of the top SDVOSB (self-identifying as under $30M 5-year average revenue) firms supporting Veterans Affairs today by clicking here.
