Accenture‘s federal services business has been awarded a five-year, $50 million blanket purchase agreement by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to operate, maintain and modernize the agencyâ€™s financial management systems (FMS) for the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO), the company reported on Wednesday.
â€œWe are proud to support USPTO and enable the delivery of next-generation IT and enterprise data platform services to strengthen the performance of the agencyâ€™s financial management system,â€ said Rasha Nahas, managing director and the U.S. Department of Commerce lead for Accenture Federal Services.
Under the contract, AFS will provide program management; operations and maintenance (O&M); and development, enhancement and modernization of all systems in USPTOâ€™s Information Delivery Product (IDP) master system.
â€œWe look forward to working collaboratively with USPTO to deliver advanced technologies as part of our broader support for the agencyâ€™s mission, including analytics, cloud, intelligent automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI)â€ said Nahas.
AFS will support IDP products, including Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW); reporting and visualization tools; an extract, transform and load (ETL) tool; a distributed content repository; web applications and an Enterprise Information Portal (EIP).
â€œWe’re honored to continue working with USPTO in several key areas as they continue on their modernization journey, including intelligent automation, financial management systems support, and development and operations support for the agencyâ€™s products,â€ concluded Nahas.
This contract marks the second AFS award this year in support of USPTO. In June 2020, AFS secured a $50 million BPA to pilot, test and implement technology projects. The company will work to help USPTO transform the agencyâ€™s business and mission delivery processes through the multi-award Intelligent Automation and Innovation Support Services BPA
The previous BPA encompasses technology areas such as intelligent automation, artificial intelligence, microservices, machine learning, natural language processing, robotic process automation and blockchain.
