Texas awards $104 million contract for long-delayed HHSC data project 

The Texas health commission finally has chosen a company to run a long-delayed massive data project, awarding it to the same firm whose tentative contract was canceled in 2014.

The commission disclosed this week that it had decided to award a $104 million contract for the Enterprise Data Warehouse project to Truven Health Analytics of Ann Arbor, Mich., the company that lost the tentative contract award over cost concerns and fears the firm was getting inside information.

A commission spokesman said the state chose Truven over six other applicants only after officials reduced the scope of the project and got the company to dramatically reduce its cost proposal. In all, the $104 million contract total is nearly $35 million less than what was being discussed in 2014, said the spokesman, Bryan Black.
