US department of homeland security

Protecting the homeland and securing the future with federal solutions that deliver measurable results

Overview

Nothing is more important than securing the nation—the fundamental mission of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Accenture Federal Services works with DHS in its external mission to protect the people, infrastructure and key assets of the United States from terrorist threats. We also assist with its internal quest to improve operations, meeting mission goals more efficiently and cost effectively. We bring a relentless focus on outcomes, innovative insights and federal, commercial and global experiences. All of this can provide proven solutions to secure the homeland.

We are committed to helping DHS achieve high performance and measurable results for mission-specific as well as mission-support goals. Solutions include developing prevention tactics, streamlining intelligence gathering and maximizing new technologies.

Accenture Federal Services has broad industry knowledge and proven experience helping organizations modernize and consolidate systems and measurably improve organization performance. That means successful results for DHS and, ultimately, a strong foundation for helping protect the safety of Americans and preserve our way of life.
