Accenture Wins $42M to Upgrade Air Force’s Financial Mgmt System; Joe Chenelle Comments

Accenture Logo, GovCon WireAn Accenture (NYSE: ACN) subsidiary has won a two-year, $42.2 million contract to update the U.S. Air Force’s financial management system in order to replace nine old infrastructures.

Arlington, Va.-based Accenture Federal Services will perform the second phase of upgrades to the Defense Enterprise Accounting and Management system to help the Air Force comply with the Defense Department’s audit goals, Accenture said Monday.

DEAMS is designed to unify accounting, purchases, payables, financial liabilities and bills across the Air Force, U.S. Transportation Command and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service.

The system processes nearly $800 million in billings and collections, as well as more than 100,000 invoices every year for the Air Force.

DEAMS currently serves the Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas and DFAS centers in Limestone, Maine and Columbus, Ohio.

Accenture said the Air Force expects to save $18 million in annual operating costs.
