Arlington, Va.-based Accenture Federal Services announced Nov. 6 that the company has implemented a resource planning system that will help the Defense Health Agency‘s National Capital Region Medical Directorate (NCR MD) manage healthcare services.
NCR MD is the first organization outside of the U.S. Army to fully integrate into the General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS), which creates a single source for financial, real property, cost management and performance data, as well as a core system of record for the Army General Fund.
“GFEBS is a solid foundation to help NCR MD meet the medical needs of our servicemen and women, enhancing support capabilities for our wounded warriors while addressing Congressional mandates for greater financial accountability of tax dollars,” Joe Chenelle said, who leads Accenture’s defense and intel business. “Accenture’s support in bringing GFEBS to NCR MD exemplifies what matters most to Accenture — delivering high performance to our clients and the people they serve.”
Officials will be able to access and analyze financial data in real time, giving NCR MD leadership more reliable and readily accessible data for improved decision making. GFEBS also will make it easier for NCR MD to work more closely with business partners.
NCR MD exercises control over seven regionally located military and joint service military treatment facilities and related facilities, such as family health clinics. NCR MD’s focus is to integrate services to provide convenient and accessible healthcare for the area’s military community.
Accenture fully deployed GFEBS for the U.S. Army in 2012.
Accenture Federal Services is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Accenture LLP.
WashingtonExec last covered Accenture Federal Services in September when the company was awarded $53.1 million in contracts to provide continued maintenance and operations support to the GFEBS. Chief Executive David Moskovitz was also interviewed this month, as AFS is nominated for “Contractor of the Year” in the greater than $300 million category.
