Accenture Awarded IT Support Services Contract from FBI
Contract supports agency’s efforts to manage, adapt its Human Resources Information System
RESTON, Va.; Jan. 5, 2012 -- The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has awarded Accenture Federal Services a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) and four task orders to install an enterprise resource planning system to support the FBI’s Human Resources Information System (HRIS).
The BPA was awarded under the General Services Administration IT schedule that provides technology support services to the FBI. The task orders under this award will enable Accenture to oversee selection, installation, testing and support to the agency’s HR systems. Accenture also will complete a fit gap analysis to determine possible future costs to replace the FBI’s current HRIS systems.
“By modernizing its Human Resources information System, the FBI will be able to increase effectiveness and streamline processes,” said John Matchette, who leads Accenture’s Federal Public Safety practice.
“These improvements will help the FBI develop a modern, on-demand system for accessing personnel information.”
The contract, which includes one base year with four option periods, requires Accenture to submit a report with recommendations the FBI can use to determine whether to customize software, reengineer business processes or combine both options to support future needs.
Accenture is eligible to receive additional task orders under the BPA.
