Accenture Federal Services lands $453M VA contract
Arlington-based contractor will streamline G.I. Bill claims processing
Arlington-based Accenture Federal Services has won a $453 million contract from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to modernize and improve G.I. Bill claims processing for veterans, service members and their families, announced March 29.
The seven-month contract, which includes nine one-year options, is part of legislation intended to improve the speed and accuracy of processing education claims for the VA’s Veterans Benefits Administration.
Accenture Federal Services will lead a team of 12 subcontractors on the project.
“Accenture is excited to support VA in transforming its Digital G.I. Bill program — from the time a veteran, service member or their dependent applies for a certificate of eligibility to when they graduate and search for meaningful employment,” Shawn Roman, managing director at Accenture Federal Services and client account lead for VA, said in a statement. “Through the Digital GI Bill Delivery Program, we will help VA reduce its claims processing times through increased automation, enabling VA administrators and employees to focus on serving veterans and providing a more productive veteran experience.”
