Visionary Integration Professions, an information technology firm based in Folsom, has won a $95 million agreement from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to buy its system for managing employee talent.

Under the contract, VIP will provide more than 250,000 agency employees with a secure, cloud-based enterprise talent management system.

The VIP system will provide a single platform for analyzing employees' skills, and will automate design, delivery and tracking of programs for developing talent.

The system will be used across the department and eight divisions – U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Secret Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.

"The IT landscape at DHS today consists of at least four separate technology platforms for learning and development," said Jonna Ward, CEO of VIP. "We believe this project will create a DHS that is more efficient and agile and will serve as a model for other agency consolidations and shared service cloud deployments."

VIP also will supply information technology services, including software planning/analysis, design, integration and system testing. Meridian will deliver system software and provide technical support and customer service.
