Accenture Selects Baltimore-Based Global Commerce & Information as “Small Business of the Year” 
ARLINGTON, Va.; Feb. 11, 2015 – Accenture Federal Services has selected Global Commerce & Information (Global CI) as the recipient of its second annual “Small Business of the Year” award. The Baltimore-based company won the award for its outstanding work on the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Information Technology Support Services Contract (ITSSC).
Accenture is supporting the research and implementation of emerging technology applications designed to improve SSA’s service delivery to current and future beneficiaries and retirees. The ITSSC allows the SSA to purchase a wide range of IT systems development and modernization services.  
As Accenture’s subcontractor on this project, Global CI plays an integral role in the successful delivery of services related to health IT policy, applications systems and technology and capability modernization assessments, analyzing medical case data used to process claims. This analysis will increase efficiency in claims processing.
“The contribution of Global CI to our work on ITSSC has been invaluable,” said David Moskovitz, chief executive of Accenture Federal Services. “The team has demonstrated the commitment to delivery that Accenture looks for in a business partner.”
Global CI is an industry-recognized, award-winning provider of IT solutions for federal and commercial clients, focusing on IT modernization support, health IT and human capital management.
Accenture Federal Services established the “Small Business of the Year” award last year to reflect its commitment to supplier diversity and its dedication and appreciation to the small business community across the country. Nominees were rated on three core areas: technical quality, financial management and overall program management.
Accenture Federal Services is a U.S. company, with offices in Arlington, Va., and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accenture LLP. Accenture’s federal business has served every cabinet-level department and 30 of the largest federal organizations with clients at defense, intelligence, public safety, civilian and military health organizations.
