Advocates for VistA, VA's EHR system, shouldn't give up hope yet. There's still some chance that DoD could wind up using the same system VA does, or at least a commercial derivative of it.

Within the next few weeks, the Navy said it will finally finish its transition to a new operating structure for its IT network. As Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, all of the Navy's 300,000 users will be operating under a contract structure known as NGEN by the end of this month.
Dr. Reginald Brothers, the new Homeland Security Department undersecretary for science and technology, wants to revamp DHS' S&T portfolio by making its research projects more relevant to end users, building more connective tissue between headquarters and DHS components and rebuilding workforce morale.
After years of acquisition planning, bid protests and then eventually a rolling process of migrating users from one contract to another, the Navy says all of its users will have moved to its new NGEN contract by the end of this month.

Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details.

The Pentagon issued a handful of directives in August designed to reverse the trend in its contract competition rate, which has slipped from 64 percent in 2008 to 56.5 percent in the third quarter of 2014. A preliminary analysis shows most of the opportunity for improvement is in service contracting.
