Accenture Federal Services won a $329 million prime contract with the U.S. Agency for International Development to manage a comprehensive information assurance and privacy program. The contract has a period of performance of up to ten years.
“USAID leads the federal government’s international development efforts in more than 100 nations. To accomplish its humanitarian mission to reduce poverty and strengthen democratic governance, USAID relies on a vast network of partners and a complex technology ecosystem capable of addressing overseas challenges,” said Accenture Federal Services CEO John Goodman.
Under the contract, Accenture Federal Services will deliver a suite of services to include risk and compliance support, incident management, diagnostics and mitigation support, threat intelligence and analysis, a privacy program and cyber awareness training for USAID personnel.
“Accenture Federal Services is honored to be entrusted with protecting the systems that form the framework of USAID’s enterprise operational capacity,” Goodman said.
Accenture Federal Services will also support USAID’s Bureau for Management, Office of the Chief Information Officer with managing an adaptable information assurance program.
“This contract award marks Accenture Federal Services’ first prime contract with USAID. We’re thrilled to be tapped to lead this critical initiative for the Agency,” said John Roche, a managing director in Accenture Federal Services and USAID client lead.
“We look forward to delivering innovative, cost-effective solutions that protect the integrity, confidentiality, and accountability of the Agency’s information assets.”
