To better reach a larger number of veterans who might not otherwise learn about and take advantage of benefits and services to which they are entitled, CalVet should continue to use technology, including implementing CalVet Connect.
This project was completed and closed out by the Department of Technology.
CalVet Connect is nearing the end of the design phase and beginning testing. A pilot of the system will occur in early December with full implementation occurring in February of 2014.
CalVet will continue to use technology to reach Veterans by developing CalVet Connect. A vendor has been selected and will be awarded the contract in April 2013. The project is expected to start on May 1, 2013. This is a reportable project to the California Technology Agency and they are providing Project Oversight. We anticipate launching CalVet Connect in February 2014. CalVet Connect Contract Awarded. FSR submitted.
