Air Force Awards $950M ABMS IDIQ to Accenture Federal Services
Accenture Federal Services has secured a potential 10-year, $950M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with the Air Force to help build the service’s multiple-award Advanced Battle Management System.
The IDIQ falls under a larger multiple-award, multi-level security effort to harmonize the capabilities of warfighting systems across the air, land, sea, space, cyber and electromagnetic spectrum domains in an overarching open architecture family of systems.
The Air Force’s multiple-award ABMS contract calls for products and services, including open systems design, modern software and algorithm development, to supplement the U.S. military’s proposed Joint All Domain Command and Control effort, Accenture said.
Susan Lawrence, managing director and deputy director of the AFS defense and intelligence portfolio, expressed commitment to supporting the Air Force’s mission to facilitate data connection across all domains for improved warfighter decision-making. Lawrence, who is also a past Wash100 winner, stressed the importance of equipping military forces with the necessary capabilities to maximize mission effectiveness, especially as the Air Force works towards actualizing support for JADC2.
According to Scott Sloan, managing director of armed forces growth and strategy at AFS, the company looks forward to contributing its expertise in systems integration and open systems design to advance the Air Force’s goal of fully integrating C2 assets.
AFS is part of the second batch of contractors for the ABMS, which also includes companies like Ball Aerospace & Technologies, Black River Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, CAE USA Mission Solutions, Cubic, Global Air Logistics and Training, Leidos, Mercury Defense Systems, Metron, NetScout Systems and Octo Consulting Group.
