DLA moves into final phase of supply chain integration

Accenture will integrate DLA's energy supply chain into its overall enterprise business system program

Accenture has won a four-year, $73 million contract to integrate the Defense Logistics Agency’s energy supply chain into its overall enterprise business system program.

The energy convergence program is designed to incorporate DLA’s energy supply chain business into its enterprise resource planning architecture, which Accenture introduced in 2000 as a result of its business systems modernization contract, according to an Accenture announcement released today.

Under the business systems modernization contract, Accenture developed a SAP-based ERP architecture, replaced two of DLA’s larger existing systems, and integrated seven DLA supply chains.

In 2007, Accenture began work on the enterprise business system, creating more efficient, effective and reliable supply chain support to the military services.

Energy is the eighth and final component of DLA’s supply chain system. It includes all fuel commodities and related business processes.

Working with DLA personnel and Defense Energy Support Center fuels managers, the Accenture team will integrate a client-specific oil solution to meet the requirements of the center.

Accenture said its solution will streamline operations, integrate financial activities and reduce systems support cost. Additionally, it will provide DLA with total asset visibility and reduce customer wait times, a critical feature for military personnel worldwide.

When the energy integration is complete, DLA will have added more than $18 billion in traceable items to its fully integrated logistics supply chain, the contractor said.
