Accenture Federal Services to Modernize US Marshals’ IT Systems

Virginia-headquartered consulting firm Accenture Federal Services has been awarded a $618 million cost-plus award fee task order to enhance and modernize the United States Marshals Service’s mission-critical IT systems. The seven-year task order builds upon a previous five-year USMS deal for program management and IT application development services, AFS said Wednesday.

The scope of work under the deal includes a continuation of case management modernization along with expanded advanced analytics, mobile application development, cloud, biometrics and geospatial capabilities. The comprehensive, integrated technology effort supports the agency’s continued rollout of emerging technologies, including automation, the company said.

AFS further explained that the USMS’s ultimate goal in entering the deal, which was awarded through the Alliant 2 Governmentwide Acquisition Contract, was to be able to retire outdated legacy systems, enhance security and reduce costs.

In a statement, Jenna O’Steen, AFS managing director and justice and judiciary sector lead, said that in the performance of the contract, the company will “work to unlock new insights through the integration of operational data that will increase officer safety and improve overall workforce productivity.”

The USMS supports the federal justice system by protecting the federal judiciary, apprehending federal fugitives, transporting federal prisoners and carrying out other law enforcement duties. It provides support to 94 district offices and several sub-offices across the U.S., including four foreign field offices.

In July, AFS was awarded a $729 million contract to help the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command transform multiple enterprise resource planning systems into a single, consolidated model to improve efficiency, enhance readiness and reduce costs.
