Appian has won a contract worth $10 million from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to expand the OCC’s use of Appian’s business process management suite.
The OCC, an agency of the Treasury Department, oversees the execution of laws relating to all national banks, and establishes rules and regulations governing the operations of those banks.
The new contract covers the creation and roll-out of the BPM-based Central Application Tracking System, known as CATS, that will automate the submission and processing of the paper-based licensing and regulatory filings that U.S. commercial banks submit to the OCC.
CATS specifically targets the agency’s core mission, which covers the entire process of licensing and chartering U.S. federal banks to ensure the safety and soundness of the national banking system, according to a company announcement.
For the CATS project, Appian and its financial services partner Oakbrook Solutions will work under prime contractor and systems integrator REI Systems, of Herndon, Va., the announcement said.
Appian will supply the BPM platform and consulting services and Oakbrook will provide key subject matter support in the areas of change management and training.
OCC chose the Reston, Va., BPM provider after a two-year evaluation of all traditional BPM providers and two independent competitive solicitations, the company said.
