Zolon Tech announces $4.8 million contract award from HHS in support of child health and well-being
Zolon Tech Inc. (Zolon), a rising provider of IT and managed services for both federal and commercial customers, announced today it was awarded a contract from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide governance, oversight and technical assistance encompassing all phases of the System Development Lifecycle to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of state and tribal child support systems. The contract contains one base year of performance and four option periods, with the maximum value set at $4.8 million.
Under the contract, Zolon is responsible for supporting the HHS Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE). Zolon is providing technical assistance to the HHS/ACF/OCSE’s Division of State & Tribal Systems (DSTS). Zolon supports DSTS with reviewing automated child support systems planned, developed, implemented, operated and maintained by states and tribes. Zolon’s role includes reviewing each state’s/tribe’s advance planning documents, feasibility studies, cost benefit analyses, project plans, procurement documents, requests for proposals, contracts, program management plans and other project lifecycle artifacts
“We are proud to be supporting HHS through this contract, and especially grateful for this opportunity to further the missions of ACF and OCSE in fostering the development and well-being of our nation’s children,” said Ram Mattapalli, CEO of Zolon. “By facilitating the automation and streamlining of HHS systems, this contract will serve to make the grants management process faster and more efficient, ensuring the delivery of compassionate and effective human services to children who need them most.”
As federal offices like ACF and OCSE seek to effectively reach and serve children and families in need of services, the timely and efficient distribution of grants remains one of the primary tools for bolstering support programs nationwide. The services provided by Zolon under this contract serve to ensure that federal grant money is reaching those citizens with the greatest need, and, even more importantly, ensures the grant process is being conducted in a streamlined and efficient manner.
