Accenture Federal Services has been awarded a $618 million cost-plus-award-fee task order to enhance and modernize the U.S. Marshals Service’s mission-critical IT systems.
USMS supports the federal justice system with protecting the federal judiciary, apprehending federal fugitives and transporting federal prisoners.
Under the 7-year contract, awarded through the Alliant 2 Governmentwide Acquisition Contract, AFS will build on a previous 5-year USMS task order for program management and IT application development services.
“Accenture Federal Services understands the critical role the United States Marshals Service plays within the U.S. federal justice system and is thrilled to continue our support for the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency,” said Jenna O’Steen, AFS managing director and justice & judiciary sector lead.
The work includes a continuation of case management modernization with expanded advanced analytics, mobile application development, cloud, biometrics and geospatial capabilities. This effort will support the agency in continuing to roll out emerging technologies like automation while retiring outdated legacy systems, enhancing security and reducing costs.
“Looking ahead, we’re excited to unlock new insights through the integration of operational data that will increase officer safety and improve overall workforce productivity,” O’Steen said.
