The Department of the Interior plans to award a potential 10-year, $250 million contract to Accenture‘s (NYSE: ACN) federal arm for services in support of an automated information system used by the Office of Natural Resources Revenue to collect, verify and distribute mineral revenues to stakeholders.
DOI said in an award notice published Wednesday on beta SAM website that the proposed indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract provides for the operation, maintenance and modernization of ONRR’s Minerals Revenue Management Support System.
According to a request for proposal issued in June 2020 by the Acquisition Services Directorate of DOI’s Interior Business Center, contract work is aimed at supporting the office in its effort to ensure accuracy and completeness of MRMSS-enabled accounting, audit, analysis of mineral royalties’ collection and disbursement.
MRMSS has financial, compliance and business automation, or data warehouse, components that provide ONRR with revenue management services for mineral leases on Indian lands.
The office also looks to cut information technology operational costs, ensure MRMSS components’ high availability and performance and mitigate hardware and software risks through the contract.
The IDIQ has options that, if exercised, will bring its value to the previously mentioned contract amount ceiling. Funds will only be obligated through task orders ranging from $100,000 to $25 million.
