RESTON, Va; Aug. 5, 2011 -- The IRS competed its long-time IT services-related suite of indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts, called TIPSS-4 ITS, which have a 10-year period of performance (one base-year and nine one-year options). These contracts are the primary procurement vehicles for technology-related services within the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and other Treasury bureaus. Thirty-three companies were selected as prime contractors on this multiple-award contract among the industry’s best competitors, including Accenture Federal Services.

Selected contractors will provide support which encompasses a large spectrum of services concerning local microcomputer applications to large-scale integrated legacy systems, and newly developed systems, as well as security services and program management.

The TIPSS-4 ITS contract is designed to provide state of the art, modern technology services throughout the period of performance of the contract. As one of the selected contractors, Accenture would provide technology services.
