Accenture To Design New IT Management System For The Defense Contract Management Agency

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded Accenture Federal Services an eight-month contract to design a master blueprint for automating the department’s Earned Value Center, part of the agency that reviews more than a trillion dollars of annual defense spending from around the world.

Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) is responsible for ensuring that DoD contractors in the United States and abroad are reporting their costs and schedules accurately using the highest standards for earned value management established by the National Defense Industry Association. Accenture’s work will focus on deploying analytics, improving work flow and streamlining reporting to help the DCMA increase efficiency and address a backlog of reviews that currently rely on manual processes.

“This blueprint will give the DCMA a clear path to process improvements through the use of technology. Working side-by-side with our clients, Accenture implements innovative solutions that dramatically improve operational performance,” said Joe Chenelle, who leads Accenture’s defense and intelligence agency business.

Accenture will design an analytics program to pull information from various sources to determine a contractor’s compliance with required guidelines and standards. The results can be shared with regional field offices, program managers and DoD executives, enabling on-site, detailed analysis. These reviews will be tracked, monitored and reported to DCMA through a web-based portal, streamlining operations and increasing insight into each program’s performance.

Accenture Federal Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accenture LLP, a U.S. company, with offices in Arlington, VA. Accenture’s federal business serves every cabinet-level department and 20 of the largest federal organizations. The U.S. federal portfolio spans across clients in civilian, defense, intelligence and public safety agencies.
