An Accenture subsidiary has booked a potential 10-year, $329 million contract to help the U.S. Agency for International Development manage a complex information assurance program.
The award to Accenture Federal Services encompasses a wide range of support services for the Office of the Chief Information Officer within USAID’s Bureau for Management, the company said Tuesday.
“To accomplish its humanitarian mission to reduce poverty and strengthen democratic governance, USAID relies on a vast network of partners and a complex technology ecosystem capable of addressing overseas challenges,” Goodman added.
Under the contract, AFS will assist the bureau across risk and compliance assistance, incident management, diagnostics and mitigation, and threat intelligence and analysis efforts.
The company will also support privacy and cyber awareness training programs for the agency’s workforce.
John Roche, a managing director and USAID client lead at AFS, noted the award is the subsidiary’s first prime contract with USAID.
AFS recently won multiple contracts to help government customers improve their systems. Last month, AFS received a $24 million contract from the Defense Health Agency to support the Joint Operation Medicine Information Systems’ Medical Common Operating Picture program with enterprise-wide, real-time medical situational information and operational medicine information sharing.
In March, AFS booked a $628 million recompete contract from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to extend its work to manage the Federally Facilitated Marketplace and HealthCare.gov.
