Accenture Federal Services wins US Air Force ABMS spot
Arlington, VA-based Accenture Federal Services (AFS), a subsidiary of Accenture, announced on August 3 that it has been awarded a position on a United States Air Force contract to build a modernized and interoperable Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). The contract leverages open systems design, modern software, and algorithm development in order to support the mission of Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
The five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) has a contract ceiling value of $950 million and five option years. The IDIQ contract is part of a multiple award, multi-level security effort to develop and operate systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum), in an open architecture family of systems that powers capabilities across multiple integrated platforms.
Retired Army Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence, managing director and deputy director of the AFS Defense and Intelligence Portfolio, said “We look forward to supporting the USAF as they develop and deploy innovative technologies that connect data across all domains to better inform decision making. Working with the Air Force to implement the advanced capabilities needed for JADC2, it is important to ensure that our forces have what they need to maximize their effectiveness.”
Scott Sloan, managing director of Armed Forces Growth and Strategy at AFS, added “We are excited to team with the US Air Force on the transformative ABMS program and look forward to adding AFS’ expertise in systems integration and open systems design to advance their goal to fully integrate command and control assets.”
