The U.S. Department of the Navy has awarded Accenture Federal Services (NYSE:ACN) five task orders under an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide information technology support and training for the Navy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Each task order has a one-year period of performance. The total value of all five task orders is $19.8 million.
Accenture is helping support, maintain and improve the Navy ERP system, built on the SAP® ERP application, for the Naval Supply Systems Command’s (NAVSUP) Business Systems Center (BSC) in Mechanicsburg, Pa. NAVSUP delivers information technology solutions with specific emphasis on logistics and financial-related products and services for the Navy, U.S. Department of Defense, Military Services and other federal agencies.
Work under the task orders includes supporting the financial and supply chain systems, providing technical system development and enhancements, and delivering functional training support to system users.
Navy ERP is an integrated financial and business management system that manages more than 50 percent of the Navy’s total obligation authority, with more than 68,000 users worldwide. The system is integral to achieving the Navy’s goal of producing auditable financial statements in compliance with U.S. Department of Defense and Navy audit guidance.
“Navy ERP is an important system in the Navy’s business systems portfolio. It meets critical fleet supply needs, provides financial visibility and improved auditability, and delivers more accurate information for better decision-making. We are proud to be selected to help the Navy sustain the system,” said Vince Vlasho, who leads Accenture’s work with the Navy.
Accenture also supports the Navy with comprehensive audit readiness services and IT effectiveness evaluations for the Navy as well as program management and engineering services for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific.
