Accenture Federal Services wins US Navy IT transformation contract

Arlington, VA-based Accenture Federal Services (AFS), a subsidiary of Accenture, announced on December 16 has been awarded a task order to help the U.S. Department of the Navy (DON) drive an enterprise transformation strategy to redesign its future plans and practices related to data, cloud, cybersecurity, architecture, investments, and talent to achieve greater advantage and readiness.

Under the terms of the contract ― which is valued at $38 million over five years ― AFS will provide information technology (IT) and management consulting services to the DON, the U.S. Marine Corps, and senior leaders at the Department of Defense. The goal is to help the DON fundamentally change the way it invests in enterprise capability modernization to position the DON for greater joint-domain capabilities.

AFS will help the DON transform mission capabilities using innovative solutions that scale to meet future needs and improve operational outcomes. The work includes transformation for the Department’s enterprise through strategy, digital, portfolio planning, enterprise architecture, data management, modeling and architecture, cybersecurity, and organizational change management activities.

“We’re honored to help the Department of the Navy manage its digital, data and IT services so they can focus critical resources on mission-specific requirements,” said Vince Vlasho, who leads Accenture Federal Services’ Defense portfolio. “As commercial technology accelerates, we want to ensure that the DON adapts and has what it needs to maximize readiness and warfighting effectiveness.”

The Department of the Navy Organizational Transformation Support contract continues AFS’ ongoing support to the DON. AFS currently works with several commands across the DON, providing mission and back office-related IT implementations, management consulting, and operations as well as recruiting services for Navy Recruiting Command.
