Capgemini Government Solutions LLC will provide independent verification and validation support to the Army under a five-year, $88 million contract.
The contract calls for the contractor to provide IV&V services to the Army’s Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems, which is responsible for providing infrastructure and information management systems to the service.
The program office is establishing an IV&V function at the Army enterprise level to improve enterprise resource planning implementations, according to a Capgemini announcement.
The goal is to reduce costs associated with the Army’s ERP programs and provide an enterprise view across the Army, which would address its goal of total asset visibility.
Capgemini will support the Army’s five ERP programs, which are Global Combat Support System-Army, Logistics Modernization Program, General Fund Enterprise Business System, Army-Defense Integrated Manpower and Human Resources System, and the Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program.
Capgemini’s scope of work will include providing – collectively at the enterprise level and individually at the project level – broad-based IV&V services encompassing Army ERPs within the purview of Program Executive Office, including future ERP program requirements.
In addition to providing ERP IV&V services, the Capgemini team will develop, operate and maintain an automated Central Risk Repository for the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems that is designed to track and monitor information related to the performed validation services.
Subcontractors include American Systems, Business Management International Inc., CSCL, Exalt, Hampton University, Lighthouse Technologies Inc., New Vectors, PRTM and Pragmatics.
