Accenture Federal Services Wins Position on IRS Blanket Purchase Agreement with $2.6B Ceiling Value

Company to Help Make Tax Return Processing Faster and More Secure for Millions of Americans

ARLINGTON; May 24, 2023 – The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has awarded Accenture Federal Services a position on an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) systems modernization blanket purchase agreement. The award has a ceiling value of $2.6B.

Under the terms of the Enterprise Development, Operations Services (EDOS) blanket purchase agreement, Accenture Federal Services will compete for future task orders to support the IRS applications development office with creating new ways for taxpayers and tax professionals to interact with the agency.

The EDOS contract vehicle brings all 400-plus systems in the IRS’s applications development portfolio under one contract vehicle to modernize existing systems, build out analytics, and improve cybersecurity.

“The IRS had the foresight and vision to create a contract vehicle with the ability to keep up with, or even ahead of, new legislative demands,” said Jessica Powell, a managing director in Accenture Federal Services and IRS client lead. “These reforms will result in faster processing of returns and quicker distributions of the credits and benefits that are vital to so many Americans. We’re thrilled to offer support to the IRS as they make these technology enhancements happen.”

“We’re honored to support the IRS’ push to develop innovative ways for America’s millions of taxpayers to interact securely and effectively with the agency,” said Elaine Beeman, a senior managing director for the Accenture Federal Services Civilian portfolio.

EDOS has a period of performance of seven years.

Accenture Federal Services is a subsidiary of Accenture (NYSE: ACN).
