Accenture Federal Services (AFS), a subsidiary of Accenture, has been awarded a $199 million contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), to provide IT services for TSA’s Secure Flight System.
Secure Flight is a risk-based, prescreening program that enhances security by matching passenger names against trusted traveler lists and government watchlists.
The Secure Flight Systems IT Services contract runs for one base and nine option years. The goal is to transition the passenger screening system from its current architecture to open-source technologies, according to Accenture.
