Accenture has been awarded the Enterprise Business Systems (EBS) BPA contract by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to provide business systems integration, systems engineering and application management services. The base contract is for five years, with options to extend the agreement by another five years.
The Enterprise Business System integration and sustainment contract continues DLA’s modernization efforts and provides application management support for the agency’s enterprise systems. Accenture won the DLA Business Systems Modernization (BSM) contract in 2000 and delivered a new SAP-based system that transformed DLA’s supply chain operations. The new EBS integration and sustainment capability will build upon DLA’s modernization efforts to enhance the agency’s supply chains.
DLA provides 100 percent of food, fuel, medical supplies, clothing/textiles, construction and equipment to US service men and women in 126 nations. The agency averages 54,000 requisitions and 8,200 contracts per day, and manages 520,000 shipments annually. EBS has enabled DLA to re-direct shipments in-flight, all within one system with real-time monitoring of the processes and transactions.
Under the new contract, Accenture will work with DLA to deliver new capabilities that are focused on providing more efficient, effective and reliable supply-chain support to the military services and America’s warfighters. Accenture will continue to modernize DLA’s multiple logistics systems into a single, integrated end-to-end system, extending business functions based on leading practices and replacing legacy software systems with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software.
