The Department of Defense (DoD) has signed a seven-year, $374 million contract with Concur Technologies that makes the company the sole source for DoD’s Defense Travel Modernization (DTM) project, DoD announced Sept. 15 on SAM.gov.
The award anticipates that the DTM will be managing nearly four million transactions per year by Fiscal Year 2025.
“The primary purpose of the DTM is to improve travel performance outcomes by delivering state-of-the-art, industry-leading travel and expense management to the entirety of the DoD,” the award states. “DTM is a web-based travel-as-as-service system provided through cloud-based SaaS (software-as-a-service) and will provide world-class industry standard travel capabilities to the DoD through a streamlined travel system.”
Concur won the contract after previously producing a successful prototype for DoD via an Other Transaction Authority award in 2018. This award is structured as a follow-on to that with a one-year base period, followed by six option contract years.
Currently, the prototype is expected to handle approximately 2,000 users and 1,000 transactions this fiscal year. The award expects a ramp-up to approximately 30,000 transactions in FY2022, then a steady ramp-up to achieve the expected annual volume by FY2025.
The DoD announced it was proceeding and negotiating with Concur as the sole source for this modernization effort towards the end of April of this year. Concur will be responsible for the full implementation of the DTM, as well as sustaining and supporting the system.
