US Interior Department Awards $250 Mn IT Platform Contract to Accenture

The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) has awarded Accenture Federal Services a $250 million contract to help the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) operate and maintain a mission services IT platform.

The contract, which is for 10 years, aims to streamline the management of over 245 million acres of federal land and 700 million acres of subsurface minerals.

“The agency is forging ahead with a modernization journey and developing a Mission Services Platform (MSP) designed to serve employees and customers for decades. Accenture Federal Services will deliver agile application services to create an architecture for the MSP that will improve data quality, enhance employee productivity, and transform the way citizen services are delivered,” Accenture Federal Services Managing Director and Department of the Interior Client Lead, Kathryn Larson, said.

Accenture Federal Services will leverage its proficiency in portal development, geospatial enablement, case management, agile delivery, human-centered design, and governance to assist BLM in advancing its adoption of digital tools. 

Last month, the department also awarded contracts for its latest cloud hosting services to seven vendors, potentially totaling up to $2 billion over 10 years.

The awardees of Interior’s Foundation Cloud Hosting Services II contract include Accenture Federal Services, IBM, CGI Federal, SAIC, Cognosante, Zivaro, and Smartronix. These vendors will compete for task orders under this indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract.

The contract outlines Interior's requirements for cloud license and support services encompassing infrastructure, platform, and software within a cloud environment.
