Several Greater Washington companies are among the 27 government contractors awarded spots on a military health contract potentially worth $1 billion.

The Defense Health Agency said the companies will provide medical support services to military treatment facilities across the U.S., Guam and Puerto Rico. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a maximum value of $969 million and will run for five years.

The companies will compete for task orders for clerical, certified, specialized and technical medical support services for routine staffing, temporary workload increases and new mission support. The services do not include direct patient care or services requiring access to classified information, the Falls Church-based agency said.

Eleven of the companies are headquartered in Greater Washington. Here they are in alphabetical order:

The Department of Defense is taking on several high-profile efforts to streamline its health care operations. The DHA was created in 2013 to in part drive shared services in information technology, procurement and facility support. A 2016 defense authorization bill called for DHA to manage more than 400 military hospitals and clinics currently operated by the Army, Navy and Air Force. 

A sweeping electronic health records push, meanwhile, took a key step forward May 17 when the Department of Veterans Affairs inked a 10-year, $10 billion deal with Kansas City-based Cerner Corp. (NASDAQ: CERN) to adopt the same health tech platform as the Pentagon.

That system, known as MHS Genesis, is being developed by Cerner and Reston-based government IT services giant Leidos Holdings (NYSE: LDOS), which won a $4.3 billion contract in 2015 to build it. A pilot at four locations was halted in January when the rollout revealed a large number of workflow issues and other glitches.
