Information technology contracting firm Harris Corp. has acquired Patriot Technologies LLC, which provides I.T. services to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Melbourne, Fla.-based Harris provides a range of services for organizations in the public and private sectors and has annual revenue of about $5 billion. Under a contract with the Department of Health and Human Services, the company co-developed the CONNECT interoperability software to aid in connecting to the emerging nationwide health information network. In the private sector, Rockledge, Fla.-based Health First, a three-hospital delivery system, early this year outsourced substantial parts of its information technology operations and management to Harris under a 10-year contract.
