Accenture’s (NYSE: ACN) federal services arm has received a potential six-year, $729 million contract from the U.S. Army to consolidate enterprise resource planning systems into a single model to improve readiness and efficiency.
Accenture Federal Services will provide the Army Shared Services Center with Agile development, organizational change management, quality assurance and other capability support under the contract with Army Communications-Electronics Command, the company said Tuesday.
Vince Vlasho, senior managing director of defense portfolio at AFS, said the company looks forward to supporting the service’s transition to a unified ERP backed by industry best practices and innovative approaches.
“This is an important opportunity to help the Army sustain its legacy systems yet enhance modernization through advanced technologies, such as automated enterprise services,” Vlasho added.
AFS has supported other Army technology projects, including the Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation Non-Appropriated Fund Integrated Financial Management System, a cloud-based payroll and accounting initiative.
