Accenture Selected To Implement New Human Services Eligibility System For State Of Iowa

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been selected by the State of Iowa following a competitive bid process to replace its 35-year-old human services eligibility system. The contract has a six-year base period that runs to 2018, with four one-year extension options.

Accenture will implement the Human Services suite of products from Accenture Software to support the state’s efforts to meet upcoming federal guidelines, improve customer services, reduce technology costs and integrate eligibility processes across a number of human service and health programs. The products include the Accenture Public Service Platform, the Accenture Benefits Management System and the Accenture Citizen Self-Service Portal.

“Iowa is seizing a great opportunity to build a more integrated eligibility system, to better meet the needs of citizens. The system will improve program integrity, increase productivity of staff and reduce long-term IT costs,” said Julie Booth, Accenture’s managing director for human services for state, local and provincial government in North America.

“The public sector is under pressure to find smarter ways to operate and deliver services, and Accenture Software and this project is geared to meeting that challenge,” said David McCurley, who leads Accenture’s public sector software business.

The project will leverage a range of Accenture’s capabilities and expertise in human services, including management consulting and systems integration, in addition to the Accenture Software applications and framework.
