Accenture Federal Services has won a spot on an Internal Revenue Service systems modernization blanket purchase agreement with a ceiling value of $2.6 billion.
Under the Enterprise Development, Operations Services BPA, the company will compete for future task orders to help the IRS applications development office find new ways for taxpayers and tax professionals to interact with the IRS. EDOS has a period of performance of seven years.
“The IRS had the foresight and vision to create a contract vehicle with the ability to keep up with, or even ahead of, new legislative demands,” said Jessica Powell, a managing director at Accenture Federal Services and IRS client lead.
“These reforms will result in faster processing of returns and quicker distributions of the credits and benefits that are vital to so many Americans. We’re thrilled to offer support to the IRS as they make these technology enhancements happen.”
The contract vehicle also brings all 400-plus systems in the IRS’ applications development portfolio under one contract vehicle to modernize existing systems and improve cybersecurity.
“We’re honored to support the IRS’ push to develop innovative ways for America’s millions of taxpayers to interact securely and effectively with the agency,” said Elaine Beeman, a senior managing director for Accenture Federal Services’ civilian portfolio.
