Capgemini picked up a seven-year, $100 million blanket purchase agreement from the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM).
The deal was put in place to support the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and to offer “Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) support services for enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations agency-wide.”
USDA wants to overhaul departmental and agency program application systems via a new Application Transformation and Modernization (ATM) program.
The firm is set to provide IV&V services in support of a number of ATM initiatives, including Modernize and Innovate the Delivery of Agricultural Systems (MIDAS); the Financial Management Modernization Initiative (FMMI); the Budget and Performance Management System (BPMS); and Web Based Supply Chain Management (WBSCM).
“The USDA plays a pivotal role in keeping Americans safe and healthy, and this transformation will be instrumental in helping the agency carry out its mission, ” said Joe Moye, chief executive officer, Capgemini Government Solutions LLC. “Capgemini’s public sector industry experience, matched with its consulting and technology capabilities to support enterprise resource planning, will help enable the USDA to quickly modernize and execute the USDA’s implementations while saving costs.”
