The U.S. Department of the Navy has selected Accenture Federal Services to provide information technology support under a multi-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract. The IDIQ has a one-year base contracting period with four, one-year option periods and a total ceiling of $53.7 million.
Under the contracting vehicle, Accenture will be able to provide services to support, maintain and improve Navy information systems, conduct analytics efforts and provide international programs support to the Naval Supply Systems Command’s (NAVSUP) Business Systems Center (BSC) in Mechanicsburg, Pa. The center delivers information technology solutions with specific emphasis on logistics and financial-related products and services for the Navy, U.S. Department of Defense, joint services and other federal agencies.
Work under the IDIQ will include providing information technology sustainment and operations support for the Navy Enterprise Resource Planning (Navy ERP) system, and enhancing other existing information technology programs. The IDIQ also calls for data analytics to help reduce inventory investment, improve the readiness of Navy operating forces, inform budget decisions and identify high-risk procurements.
“The Naval Supply Systems Command provides mission-critical IT solutions to fleet customers. We are excited about the opportunity to work with BSC to implement innovative, cost-effective solutions that improve enterprise performance,” said Vince Vlasho, managing director, who leads Accenture’s work with the Navy.
Accenture also supports the Navy with comprehensive audit readiness services and IT effectiveness evaluations for the Navy as well as program management and engineering services for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific.
