Accenture Federal Services (AFS) and partner Incentive Technology Group (ITG), a subsidiary of ICF, have been awarded a task order to help the General Services Administration (GSA), Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) modernize its legacy information technology (IT) systems and business processes, the AFS announced on Wednesday.
“GSA is known for deploying technology to drive continuous innovation,” said Barrett Witkin, managing director at Accenture Federal Services. “We’re excited to offer GSA access to Accenture’s commercial-sector capabilities tailored for the federal government, including artificial-intelligence-powered IT operations, cloud migration factories, and analytics-based procurement tools and insights.”
AFS and ITG will partner to provide agile development services and user-centered design capabilities to help FAS merge its legacy sites into a new, improved digital solution. After work is completed GSA will enable customers to efficiently access federal contract award information.
“We are looking forward to partnering with GSA in this important effort to simplify and accelerate the procurement process with best in class, modern and innovative technologies,” said JC Chidiac, ITG’s Chief Operating Officer. “With ITG’s leading agile development and user design capabilities, this effort will help drive improved outcomes for GSA’s federal customers and the citizens they serve.”
This is one of the first task orders issued under GSA’s CIO Modernization and Enterprise Transformation (COMET) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) and is worth approximately $17 million over five years. The AFS and ITG team are one of 12 entities that were awarded a position on the COMET BPA.
“We’re excited to bring forward the best of our Federal and commercial practices to support GSA in this bold modernization effort, as they focus on continually improving procurement outcomes for their Federal customers,” said Elaine Beeman, who leads AFS’ civilian portfolio.
