Accenture Federal Services has won two contracts worth a combined $53.1 million to provide the Army with operations and maintenance of its General Fund Enterprise Business System.
Worth $42 million, the first contract has Accenture providing maintenance and daily operations support including program management, help desk and application development.
The second contract, worth $11.1 million, calls for on-site technical and training support for the enterprise system at Army bases and installations.
The General Fund Enterprise Business System was originally delivered by Accenture in 2012, and it transformed the Army’s legacy financial management and real property systems into a single system, Accenture said in a release.
The system is the first Army-wide system to be compliant with the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act.
