We are pleased to announce that Bellese Technologies was awarded the Office of Information Technology’s Modern Payment Services (MPS) task order under the ADELE-QRI BPA.
The MPS team will work collaboratively with the Fee For Service Modernization efforts currently underway at CMS. The MPS team will bring industry best practice software architecture and development practices and modern languages and tools to the Modern Payment Services teams. These will enable more flexible development and real-time system-to-system integrations with systems across CMS, such as quality payment systems, provider and beneficiary support systems, etc. The Bellese team will be doing extensive service design and implementation as part of this effort.
There are two main objectives for the MPS task order:
- Building and maintaining cloud infrastructure

We are excited to partner with OIT and the FFS modernization team on this effort.
