Accenture Approved to Provide U.S. Federal Agencies with Human Capital, Training and Other HR Services

Work would come under $11.5 billion governmentwide contracting vehicle

ARLINGTON, Va.; Oct. 12, 2016 – Accenture Federal Services has qualified to provide human capital strategy, training and development, and performance-improvement services to U.S. federal agencies under an $11.5 billion Human Capital and Training Solutions Contracts (HCaTS) award vehicle.

Under the contracting vehicle, Accenture will be able to offer U.S. federal agencies a variety of human capital, training and related services, including professional management and leadership development; human capital strategy consulting services; human resources (HR) and HR-management temporary services (training delivery, HR staff augmentation); information technology support of HR systems; development of HR systems; and organizational performance improvement, including organizational transformation and business process reengineering.

The HCaTS award vehicle will be administered by the U.S. General Services Administration on behalf of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which will be responsible for HCaTS policy oversight to ensure that federal agencies are properly matched with HR solutions that best meet their needs. HCaTs contract sales are expected to be about $1 billion per year over 10.5 years.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to provide the federal government with such a broad range of human capital and HR services,” said Elaine Beeman, who leads Accenture’s work with federal civilian agencies. “A survey we conducted last year found that attracting and retaining top talent is among the top concerns of defense- and civilian-agency executives, so we’re pleased to be able to provide federal agencies with such mission-critical services. In addition, having built many of the large federal HR systems operating today, we are deeply familiar with federal-specific HR processes and policies, and that insight helps us better support our federal clients who are addressing complex human capital challenges.”

Accenture’s federal business has served every cabinet-level department and 30 of the largest federal organizations.
