Accenture Secures $486M State Department Contract to Support Supply Chain System

The Department of State has awarded Virginia-based Accenture Federal Services a potential seven-year, $486.4 million contract to operate and maintain an enterprise-wide supply chain management program.

Required support for the Integrated Logistics Management System includes security monitoring, patches, federally mandated upgrades and customer training, according to the notice SAM .gov published Wednesday.

The State Department wrote in the notice that the ILMS incorporates commercial off-the-shelf products and Application Platform-as-a-Service capabilities. The program’s success hinges on integration with other department systems, timely deployment and user acceptance, it added.

ILMS is used in 178 countries and 282 department posts worldwide. According to the State Department, the selected contractor should deliver global change management support such as through remote and on-site system deployments, training, communications and tailored operational analyses.

In 2021, the State Department released a draft request for proposals for a potential 10-year, $2.5 billion contract to support the ILMS.

Accenture was the incumbent on the previous ILMS contract through 2020. The State Department considered setting aside the recompete for small businesses.
