Accenture Federal Services has won a $175 million multi-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract to perform crowdsourcing and other crowd-based solution delivery initiatives for NASA.
NASA has used its Open Innovation Services 2 contract to scale crowd-based solutions to meet project delivery goals. Under the contract, Accenture Federal Services will support the agency in tapping into additional methodologies and engaging new partners to scale NASA’s crowdsourcing capabilities.
“Federal agencies often have a backlog of challenges that can be best addressed by tapping into the expertise of a network of best-fit industry leaders,” said Rod Adkins, Accenture Federal Services lead technical adviser to NASA.
“We are thrilled to help NASA leverage innovative methodologies, including fit-for-purpose crowd-based challenges and competitions, to deliver its mission-critical products and services,” Adkins added.
The length of the NOIS2 crowdsourcing support services contract is three years.
