Accenture Federal Services has won a potential five-year, $2 billion blanket purchase agreement for enterprise IT and business support services to the Energy Department.
DOE awarded the pact on Nov. 30 via the General Services Administration’s IT Schedule 70 vehicle and received six offers for the work, according to Federal Procurement Data System information. AFS officials declined to comment.
The CIO Business Operations Support Services BPA covers broad IT and professional services related to cybersecurity, shared services, policy, shared services, maintenance, systems architecture and engineering.
Deltek data indicates this procurement is a recompete of a potential $484.6 million task order won by small business ActionNet LLC six years ago.
Through the new CBOSS BPA, the Energy Department is seeking to accelerate its modernization efforts with respect to IT systems and information assets.
Accenture will also perform data center operations and telecommunications support. Cybersecurity-related work includes risk and vulnerability assessment; plus continuous monitoring, diagnostics and incident response; policy development and implementation; training and supply chain risk management.
