FAIRFAX, Va., March 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Department of the Interior has awarded ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) a task order under ManTech's General Services Administration Federal Supply Schedule 70 contract to provide IT services in support of the Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Medical Information Exchange (DMIX) Program Management Office. The task order has a 1-year base period of performance and two 6-month option periods, with a value of $10.9 million. Under this task order, ManTech will provide software analysis, design, development, and testing and implementation to further consolidate the DoD health community's legacy data sharing initiatives and expand the capabilities of the existing DMIX systems.

Keefe, president and chief operating officer of ManTech's Mission Solutions & Services Group. "ManTech has supported the interoperability of health data between DoD and the VA since 2010, and we are pleased to continue providing innovative solutions for this important initiative."
