Accenture Federal Services has won a $189 million contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to accelerate the agency’s migration to the cloud. The length of the contract is three years.
“We are excited for the opportunity to help modernize public health systems and improve access to data that is essential to CDC’s work,” said Jill Olmstead, Accenture Federal Services managing director and health consulting lead.
This work is part of CDC’s efforts to adopt modern technology solutions and improve delivery of Its public health mission.
“We look forward to introducing innovative ways to achieve CDC’s cloud adoption goals through our public health experience, Cloud First capabilities, and innovation investments, to help advance their mission to protect people from health, safety, and security threats,” Olmstead said.
Under the contract, AFS will work with CDC to modernize its IT systems, explore ways to enhance the functionality of those systems and migrate the systems into a secure cloud environment.
