The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded Accenture Federal Services a $2 million, one-year contract to help the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) continue improving the system that tracks data critical to the nation’s meat and poultry food supply. The work will focus on case management tracking and increased reporting efficiency to further streamline the agency’s investigation, review and approval processes.
FSIS is the public health agency under the U.S. Department of Agriculture responsible for ensuring that the nation's supply of meat, poultry and egg products is safe and correctly labeled and packaged.
Accenture developed and first implemented the AssuranceNet system in 2005, helping the agency better record and share data, as well as standardize and streamline controls across the organization, focusing first on laws and regulations across district offices. Since then, offices responsible for program evaluation, case management, violations of inspections laws and the development of domestic food policy all have been integrated.
“Federal agencies are faced with the challenge of transforming and improving how they work in today’s challenging financial environment. Continued improvements will help FSIS drive operational efficiencies, improve performance, and help protect our nation’s critical food supply infrastructure,” said Ed Meehan, who leads Accenture’s federal civilian agency portfolio.Enhancements under the new contract will enable FSIS to retire three legacy systems and consolidate all data into one, agency-wide enterprise solution. 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. Accenture Federal Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accenture LLP, a U.S. company, with offices in Arlington, VA.
