FMS Partners with Optimal Solutions & Technologies (OST Inc.) in Award to Provide Operational Documentation Support Services to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Affordable Care Act (ACA) Program Management Office (PMO) Core Systems Division

Washington, DC (October 27, 2012) - FMS, as a subcontractor to OST, has been engaged to provide the ACA with unique technical writing support and services to create operational documentation, functional specification packages, computer operator handbooks, manuals and other Information Technology (IT) system documentation. The work is being performed for the IRS ACA Program Management Office.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act were signed into law in March 2010 to constitute the United States Health Care Reform Act of 2010. The IRS established the Affordable Care Act Program Management Office as a functional division of the Information Technology Services (ITO) organization to support the legislative requirements of the Act. The ACA PMO is responsible for administering, managing, building, and implementing new IT solutions that do not currently exist to support select provisions of the legislation.

FMS provided specialized expertise in technical writing, documentation management, project control, security documentation, configuration management, and Subject Matter Expertise (SME) in the IRS Enterprise Life Cycle, Capital Planning and Investment Control documentation, and complex application software delivery management. The support provided to the IRS includes creating, developing, updating, and maintaining operational documentation for these new applications throughout the development life cycle until operational implementation as production IT systems.
