Accenture Receives FedRAMP Certification for Its Federal Cloud ERP Offering
ARLINGTON, Va.; Sept. 13, 2016 – The U.S. Federal government has awarded Accenture Federal Services FedRAMP certification for the Accenture Federal Cloud ERP solution, determining that its enterprise resource planning solution is compliant with federal security requirements.
FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, is a governmentwide program that provides a standardized approach for assessing, authorizing and continuously monitoring the security of cloud products and services. The FedRAMP certification process helps the government significantly reduce the time and staff required to conduct agency security assessments — helping eliminate redundancy and potentially reducing associated security-assessment costs by 30-40 percent.
“We have a long, successful history of delivering effective ERP solutions to the federal market, and with this additional FedRAMP certification of our cloud security capabilities, we can provide our federal clients with even more modern and flexible solutions to help them achieve their missions,” said David Moskovitz, chief executive for Accenture Federal Services.
FedRAMP is the result of collaboration with cybersecurity and cloud experts from the General Services Administration, National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the National Security Agency, the Office of Management and Budget, the Federal Chief Information Officer Council and its working groups, and private industry.
Accenture has an extensive track record of successful, secure ERP implementations including working with the $7.5 billion National Science Foundation (NSF) to implement iTRAK, the foundation’s new financial system. Accenture migrated the NSF onto Accenture’s Federal Cloud ERP platform enabling iTRAK to facilitate real-time integration of NSF’s business systems with its eight grant management systems – which support about 11,000 new awards totaling $6.9 billion. As a result of the iTRAK program, NSF has improved data integrity, reliability, consistency and sharing; improved functional integration, accountability and internal controls; an improved ability to audit transactions; and improved financial performance and management reporting capabilities. Accenture continues to provide operations, maintenance and system enhancements for iTRAK.
