G2X TAKE: Continuing its work in support of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ efforts to develop the public-facing VA.gov and increase the services it offers, Oddball, an SDVOSB dedicated to digital modernization of Federal citizen-centric services, beat out one other bidder to be awarded a new 5-year VA.gov Platform contract. The contract, valued at $94M, was awarded as an SDVOSB set-aside action using GSA MAS.
In a note to G2Xchange, Oddball shared: “We are thrilled to have the Department of Veterans Affairs select us to continue on this important initiative. As a Service-Disable Veteran-Owned company we are especially aware of the challenges Veterans have integrating into civilian life. VA.gov is a single site Veterans can use to find, apply for, track, and manage the benefits they’ve earned, and the VA.gov Platform provides the tools, systems, and guidance needed to build online experiences on VA.gov that will improve Veterans’ lives. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Oddball employees as well as our teammates.”
- Just some of Oddball’s recent past performance with VA include a $9M VANotify and VA.gov task; and a $9M Veteran Facing Services Technology Enhancements for Vaccine Information Effort task. The team’s first Federal Prime award was a $78M Veteran-Facing Services Platform (VSP) support contract win. More here.
- A look at Oddball’s experience shows both focus and breadth in support of VA to include product and delivery management, software development, user research, content management, DevOps, data analytics, platform operations and management, user experience research and design, and outreach support.

- Led by CEO Travis Sorensen, recognized as one of 36 Change Agent Awardees who are disrupting the Federal landscape; CTO Rob Wilkinson; and Jason Cullum, Vice President, Federal Health, Oddball continues to grow and position its team for success. Recent moves include recruiting Courtney Gleason, an industry leader with experience in program management and strategic consulting as Program Manager, and the addition of Heather Caudle, armed with extensive experience driving Government solutions and mission support, as Director of Business Development for Federal Health.
