Accenture Federal Services gets $13 million contract to improve SEC websites
- November 14, 2012
Accenture Federal Services, based in Arlington, has been awarded a $13 million contract by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to improve three of its websites. Under the terms of the five-year contract, it will focus on redesigning SEC.gov, Investor.gov and EDGAR, an online tool that allows people to research public companies.
The SEC is a regulatory agency charged with protecting investors and overseeing the U.S. financial securities markets, including securities exchanges, securities brokers and dealers, investment advisors and mutual funds. Its websites get 1.8 million daily visits along with thousands of tips, complaints and referrals on possible securities law violations.
Improvements also will be made to the SEC’s employee intranet – used by more than 3,800 internal users on the SEC network.
