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. Joe Chenelle, who leads Accenture’s defense and intelligence agency business commented:
“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,” he said.
The Earned Value Center is part of the agency that reviews more than a trillion dollars of annual defense spending from around the world. 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. 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.
