Accenture Federal Services has been awarded a $729 million contract to help the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command transform multiple enterprise resource planning systems into a single consolidated model.
AFS will support the Army Shared Services Center with organizational change management, agile development and quality assurance, among other capability support functions. The contract runs for six years.
“We look forward to helping the Army move toward a unified ERP supported by innovative approaches and industry best practices,” said Vince Vlasho, senior managing director of AFS’ defense portfolio. “This is an important opportunity to help the Army sustain its legacy systems yet enhance modernization through advanced technologies.”
AFS has supported the Army on other advanced technology initiatives, including a cloud-based payroll and accounting project.
“We’re excited to partner with SSC on its transformation journey,” said retired Army Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence, deputy director of AFS’ defense portfolio. “AFS will bring proven commercial capabilities with our understanding of the unique needs of the military to define and optimize processes and achieve productivity improvements.”
