The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community is facing an unprecedented time of transition as it engages in a new mission after a decade at war on multiple fronts. Although this new era is defined by new realities, mission readiness remains fundamental to military management and military operations.

The new normal of today’s military is defined by a number of important trends and challenges. Significant reductions in defense spending—$487 billion in the next ten years—will mean maintaining the world’s best fighting force at significantly lower cost. To do this, the military must become leaner, more agile and more focused as it scales back lower priority missions. Next-generation military superiority will demand agility, excellent counter-intelligence, smaller ground forces and new investments in special operations forces and unmanned technologies.

Leading military decision makers understand the imperative to optimize resources to work more effectively and efficiently in an austere budget environment—from the front lines to the back office. 

Accenture Federal Services is helping them rapidly deliver profound and sustained change. With more than two decades of experience working with all the armed services, we provide leading systems and processes to help our defense clients better manage the enterprise and generate savings. We bring a keen focus on implementing innovative solutions that dramatically improve operational performance. Our professionals also provide the military and supporting civilian workforces with the strategic thinking and skills they need to successfully perform their mission.

Our work in the federal defense environment includes relationships with the following:

  • Army

  • Navy and Marine Corps

  • Air Force

  • Defense Agencies

  • Intelligence Communities
