Accenture Federal Services wins $89.5M Air Force contract
Arlington contractor to establish cloud infrastructure for enterprise resource planning system
The U.S. Air Force awarded Accenture Federal Services (AFS), an Arlington-based subsidiary of Irish Fortune Global 500 company Accenture, a potential five-year, $89.5 million contract to establish a cloud-based common infrastructure for the branch’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, the company announced Wednesday.
Under the contract, AFS will manage the existing information technology infrastructure and work to establish a cloud-based platform to host functions including financial management, human resources, payroll and logistics.
“We are excited to work with the Air Force to deliver new capabilities in the cloud, positioning the Air Force for future adoption of artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies,” Vince Vlasho, who leads AFS’s Defense Sector portfolio, said in a statement. “We will leverage our significant experience migrating ERP systems to the cloud to help the Air Force achieve greater value.”
The goal of the contract is to help the Air Force improve the flexibility of its ERP systems, reduce redundant infrastructure and commodity services and strengthen IT environment security.
AFS has clients within the national security, federal health, military and civilian services industries. Last year, Accenture reported more than $40 billion in revenue.
