Accenture Selects Annapolis-Based Celedon Partners as “Small Business of the Year”

ARLINGTON, Va.; Dec. 5, 2017 – Accenture Federal Services (AFS) has selected Annapolis-based Celedon Partners as the recipient of the “Small Business of the Year” award for its outstanding work helping AFS deliver innovative solutions.

Celedon – a technology firm specializing in cloud computing, custom development and business consulting – played an integral role in the successful execution of Accenture’s Task Management Tool (TMT) solution. The AFS solution revolutionized the concepts of collaboration and task management by allowing for the seamless exchange of tasks within government agencies. This new technology helps digitize the back office, addressing critical business capabilities for full enterprise-wide task management. TMT can be used securely by a diverse client base with unique needs, and streamlines the review and approval process and helps government agencies manage an ever-increasing flow of tasks and information, ultimately improving mission delivery.

“Celedon consistently brings high-quality talent that are an integral part of our delivery team,” said Christine Bailey, chief financial officer of Accenture Federal Services. “Through innovative approaches in digital, cloud and emerging technologies AFS works to solve our clients’ largest, most complex problems. Our combined work with the Celedon team continues to produce high-quality deliverables, valuable insights and positive results for our clients.”

Accenture Federal Services established the “Small Business of the Year” award in 2014 to reflect its commitment to supplier diversity and its dedication and appreciation to the small-business community across the United States. Nominees were rated on three core areas: technical quality, financial management and overall program management.
