The General Services Administration (GSA) awarded a $17 million task order to help the Federal Acquisition Service modernize its legacy IT systems and business processes.
Accenture Federal Services (AFS), a subsidiary of Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and its teaming partner Incentive Technology Group (ITG), which is now part of ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), have been awarded the task order.
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. The team has previously worked together on essential programs for other U.S. federal agencies.
COMET replaces the CIO Application Maintenance, Enhancements, and Operations (CAMEO) procurement that GSA awarded in 2014 to a host of large and small businesses with a total ceiling of $400 million.
Under the task order, AFS and ITG will provide agile development services and user-centered design capabilities to help FAS merge its legacy sites into a new, improved digital solution that will provide GSA customers with efficient access to federal contract award information. GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service delivers products and services across government at the best value possible.
“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.
“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.”
“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.”
