Accenture awarded $2 billion IT contract by Department of Energy


Accenture has been awarded a blanket purchase order agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

With a potential value of $2 billion and a five-year performance period, the CIO Business Operations Support Services (CBOSS) contract covers general IT support, telecommunications, cybersecurity, systems architecture and engineering, and shared services, Accenture said in a statement.

Under the terms of the CBOSS contract, Accenture Federal Services (AFS) will support DOE’s plan to migrate from an on-premises service model to a cloud-based IT services model.

To deliver the master scope of work needed for the CBOSS contract, AFS formed a contractor teaming arrangement (CTA) with Unisys, General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) and Red River.
