Accenture Federal Services wins nearly $200M IT contract
Arlington contractor to streamline TSA systems
Arlington-based Accenture Federal Services announced Monday that it has won a $199 million, seven-year contract from the Transportation Security Administration.
Under the contract, AFS will help the TSA, which is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, consolidate three credentialing systems onto one platform to improve threat response and the administration’s evolving operational needs.
“These three systems play a critical role in delivering credentials to approximately 30 million individuals, including TSA PreCheck customers, transportation workers, airline crews and hazmat drivers, among others,” said Anthony Pinheiro, an AFS managing director and TSA lead. “This new single platform will significantly streamline operations and provide TSA with the flexibility needed to more rapidly adapt to changing threats. AFS is proud to continue our support of TSA’s mission to protect the nation’s transportation systems, ensuring freedom of movement for all Americans.”
In addition to project management, cybersecurity, and operations support, AFS will use an agile methodology to modernize the systems on a single new platform, the company said.
“TSA’s credentialing systems play a critical role in protecting our nation from a broad range of threats,” said Maurine Fanguy, a managing director with AFS and a DHS lead. “With this enhanced platform, we will continue to deliver secure, seamless support for millions of people in need of TSA credentials, while at the same time modernizing processes to deliver enhanced business value and efficiency.”
AFS has 10,500 employees and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Irish Fortune Global 500 company Accenture LLP. Accenture, global professional services company with a workforce of about 674,000 people across 120 countries, reported more than $53 billion in 2021 revenue.
