    Specific Services

    Accenture Federal Services identifies small business partners able to most effectively provide the types of services and/or products which augment Accenture’s capabilities. Potential small business partners are routinely evaluated based on the following criteria:

    • Capabilities
    • Past performance
    • Price competitiveness

    While it is AFS practice to identify potential team members that are competent and reliable, we also seek those who have managed to price their products/solutions within a competitive range. AFS also seeks to team with small businesses that are committed to being a valued member of our team and that share the client’s values.

    For AFS, developing and maintaining relationships with small and diverse businesses is not only imperative, it is simply good business. The AFS Small Business Liaison Office is committed to small business development.
