Short-Term Rental Compliance Provider LTAS Technologies Inc. (Harmari) Acquired by Avenu

CENTREVILLE, Va. -- Avenu Insights & Analytics (Avenu), the global leader in revenue enhancement and administration solutions for state and local governments, today announced the acquisition of LTAS Technologies Inc. (Harmari®), a leading provider of short-term rental identification, monitoring and compliance software and services.

Avenu and Harmari share a long history of providing innovative public sector solutions that maximize revenue, optimize operations, fight fraud and non-compliance, and enhance the citizen experience. Both companies bring together a common mission to better connect governments with citizens through enhanced digital platforms and real-time communication.

Harmari's industry leading monitoring and identification software and Avenu's scalable administrative solutions will help maximize compliance, while streamlining the collection of short-term rental and transient tax revenue for governments. Together, Avenu and Harmari will provide an end-to-end monitoring and full-service compliance solution that improves the citizen experience while maintaining a budget-neutral approach for local leaders.

The integration of Harmari's monitoring and machine learning technology and Avenu's full-service compliance, administration, and analytics brings together a fully integrated platform for both citizens and government officials. The result is a level of service that transforms the way in which local government can address the rapid growth associated with short term rentals that puts a heavy drain on staff, services and resources that are hard to scale for local officials. This approach reduces the dependency burden on governments to piece together resource-intensive processes and technologies that result in an inefficient experience and loss of tax and permitting revenue for governments and the citizens they serve.

"Keeping pace with the growth of short-term rentals, rapid changes in technology, and increased citizen expectations are challenges that many state and local governments are facing," shared Avenu CEO, Paul Colangelo. "We are combining the industry's leading technologies to create a better experience for citizen's while providing a full-service compliance solution that gives governments a way to properly monitor and collect all short-term rental revenue."

"We are very pleased to join the Avenu family," stated Harmari CEO, Allen Atamer. "We are continually innovating our technology to pivot to the needs of local governments and address the rapidly changing landscape. Harmari has a highly skilled team, and together, we will continue to deliver an industry leading GovTech platform that modernizes and streamlines this critical revenue stream and compliance objective for governments of all sizes, worldwide."

About Avenu Insights & Analytics:

Over 3,000 state and local governments have partnered with Avenu to drive positive results for their communities through software administration and revenue enhancement solutions. Avenu's comprehensive software solutions digitally transform government by modernizing processes, providing online access to records, and reducing costs.

By Light Awarded $82M VA Contract

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC (By Light) has been awarded the My HealtheVet (MHV) Development, Security and Operations (DevSecOps) contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Valued at $82M over five (5) years, this contract provides for the continued support and development of VA's Veteran-facing Electronic Health portal.

"Team By Light considers it an honor to continue our long and valued partnership with VA to provide innovative DevSecOps solutions to the MHV Program with a Scaled Agile and Digital Services Playbook approach," says Bill Sackewitz, By Light Senior VP for Digital Transformation. "Our team has invested heavily in DevSecOps, User Centered Design, and Lean Agile Product Delivery methods to hasten and improve value delivered to the customer. Our mission in By Light's Chief Strategy Office is to help our teams and our clients adopt new ways of working that lead to better user outcomes."

The MHV patient portal provides healthcare communications and coordination for millions of Veterans, caretakers, and providers. The MHV program is a nationwide initiative intended to improve the overall health of Veterans. It provides an eHealth portal, a secure environment where Veterans can view and manage their personal health record online and access health information, health assessments, and electronic services. Online health resources will enable and encourage patient/provider collaboration, as clinicians will be able to communicate with Veterans more easily.

The online environment will complement existing Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinical business practices and be transformational in the way health care is delivered and managed. Like other VA systems MHV will eventually be integrated into VA.gov that will be accessible to Veterans from MHV, or other web portals as identified by the government.

"Our team has been supporting the development and expansion of MHV since 2012 and is dedicated to furthering the evolution of one of the U.S. Government's largest and most important technical programs benefiting those who have served," states Matt Bain, MHV Program Director at By Light. "We are very proud of our ten years of supporting MHV eHealth delivery capabilities and look forward to further deliver new and innovative solutions that support VA's Office of Connected Care ecosystem and improve the experience for Veterans and their care givers."

"We are happy to have By Light back and to continue the great work we have done together over the past decade," notes Greg Kirk, MHV Program Manager. "The MHV solution will continue to evolve with the DevSecOps contract, and the results will ultimately deliver better products and services faster to the Veterans."

Cole Engineering awarded $957M Cyber Training Contract

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Cole Engineering Services, Inc. (CESI), a By Light Company, has been awarded the Cyber Training, Readiness, Integration, Delivery and Enterprise Technology (Cyber TRIDENT) $957M Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The Cyber TRIDENT contract is utilized by Department of Defense (DoD) organizations and other non-DoD agencies that have related cyber training needs.

The Cyber TRIDENT IDIQ provides the management, integration, maintenance, and evolution for the Persistent Cyber Training Environment (PCTE) platform and provides total system/subsystem acquisition lifecycle support for the PCTE system baseline. The PCTE provides a holistic, on-demand, standardized training platform that enables the end-to-end planning, preparation, execution, and assessment of training events for the Cyber Mission Force and the entire DoD Cyber Workforce.

"Team CESI is honored to be entrusted with providing an Integration Factory and Agile DevSecOps for the PCTE program and with leading the program's transition from its prototype phase into a true enterprise capability that provides training for the entire Joint Cyber Community," said Thomas Fransson, CESI Senior Vice President, Simulation Products and Services. "We have taken great pride in supporting PCTE prototyping activities since 2018 and are excited to further deploy game-changing enterprise capabilities that support the DoD's Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture ecosystem."

Team CESI's Coalesce Framework provides a holistic Agile DevSecOps capability that enables developing, integrating, testing, deploying, and sustaining the PCTE platform. Team CESI designed the Coalesce Framework to support PCTE's unique multivendor acquisition strategy by providing a holistic development, integration, and operational environment that allows third-party developers to retain their own internal development processes while seamlessly integrating with the overall Integration Factory.

"Cyber is the most dynamic of the warfighting domains, and the DoD's cyber operators demand a training system that will rapidly respond to a changing landscape of threats, tools, and TTPs. Our Coalesce Framework is one core piece of the puzzle to rapidly deliver that capability by pulling from the best that industry has to offer without impeding the pace of development," said Stephen Lopez, Senior Program Manager. "We are immediately postured to expand PCTE's current capability set into a highly scalable enterprise platform that supports the throughput required for cyber training across all of the DoD, our allies, and other government agencies, while being adaptable to the emerging needs of the force. Through Cyber TRIDENT, PCTE will mature and expand to provide force readiness and mission rehearsal that enables the DoD to deliver cyberspace dominance."
