Federal agencies have unique mission and business needs that often cannot be met out-of-the-box by commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) cloud applications. Furthermore, these solutions must comply with government missions' most demanding security and performance requirements.
Accenture Federal Services fills this void with a series of built-for-federal solutions that combine innovation with security rigor to deliver world-class performance. Each of our offerings builds upon our deep immersion in the U.S. federal government's unique and demanding security standards.
We manage numerous Government-Owned, Contractor-Operated (GOCO) services for federal clients at Department of Defense (DoD) Impact Level 5 (IL5) and above and offer additional Contractor-Owned, Contractor-Operated (COCO) cloud services accredited at up to the FedRAMP High level. Accenture Federal Services is also a FedRAMP Authorized Third-Party Assessor Organization (3PAO).
Secure Cloud Management Platform
Accelerate authorization and time to productivity with turnkey cloud deployments.
Proven across hundreds of deployments for national security missions, our Secure Cloud Management Platform delivers parameterized security for all classification and impact levels – on your cloud environment of choice.
You get infrastructure and configuration as code, proficient managed services, experienced consultants, and all the advantages of centralized cloud management. With our platform, your teams can develop at lower classification levels and publish to high-side environments, reducing overall costs and ensuring system parity across mission workloads.
CloudTracker is our cloud-agnostic offering for single-pane visibility and oversight of enterprise cloud performance and activity. Federal agencies use CloudTracker as a core component of their cloud FinOps strategy, providing insight into resource utilization, cost tracking, migration status, compliance and more.
What sets CloudTracker apart is that it's built for the federal mission, providing oversight of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure environments, including C2S and ready for C2E.
CloudTracker empowers federal agencies to manage risk proactively, monitor compliance and utilization, enforce accountability and optimize and reduce costs.
Highly sensitive national security workloads often require air-gapped or disconnected processing. We build secure, accredited solutions using CSP hardware – from AWS Snowball Edge devices to Azure Stack Hubs – to address these mission requirements.

SPOCK for secure cloud orchestration
With the shift to hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, enterprises need integrated solutions that enable swift deployment, easy maintenance and secure management of workloads across multiple environments.
SPOCK allows agencies and contractors to rapidly deploy and manage cloud workloads on Azure and AWS in a secure, type-accredited, templatized manner. SPOCK is containerized using Kubernetes for portability and scalability, with parameterized Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) builds. Integrating with CloudTracker, SPOCK offers a comprehensive cloud management suite, licensed per deployed instance. From edge devices to fully converged hyperscale environments, SPOCK scales for customized functionality.
For our defense industrial base (DIB) clients, SPOCK supports Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). It also provides security architecture, hardening and body-of-evidence documentation necessary for NIST 800 accreditation and derivatives (including 800-53, ICD 503 & JSIG).
Cloud Foundations Framework – multi-cloud scaled
While hybrid, multi-cloud and poly-cloud implementations can deliver significant value, they also add cost and complexity through duplication of tools, services and staffing.
Accenture Federal Services’ Cloud Foundation Framework is a collection of tools and accelerators for single-pane management of hybrid and multi-cloud environments. It provides end-to-end cloud management capabilities spanning business, cloud and security requirements. This framework builds off Microsoft Azure’s native controls but is easily extensible to AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, on-prem & edge devices.
With Cloud Foundation Framework, agencies can optimize management and operating costs for existing multi-cloud implementations. It can also accelerate the deployment of new Azure tenants and scale out remote desktop services to the cloud. With its open architecture, Cloud Foundation Framework can help upgrade existing cloud security implementations to a zero-trust operating model.
Skylab eases DevSecOps provisioning
While DevSecOps provides value by standardizing application delivery, it also requires significant complexity, given the number of tools and services that need to be integrated.
Skylab is a built-for-federal accelerator to automate the provisioning of government enterprise DevSecOps environments across major cloud service providers, including AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure. It deploys Accenture Federal Services' DevSecOps Factory using AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to simplify the provisioning of environments across various technology stacks. Each implementation includes a dedicated development environment, preconfigured DevSecOps services and the ability to customize, such as a choice of database or integration with single sign-on.
Accenture Federal Services has used Skylab on numerous federal programs to reduce the time and cost of provisioning environments, enabling the use of a standard configuration that can be further customized for specific requirements.
Enable continuous ATO with Cyber Assurance Integration Framework
Assessment & Authorization (A&A) of mission and business systems is critical for cyber resilience but can create significant burdens for federal agencies involving thousands of hours of manual tasks. Agencies need a standardized approach to IT compliance, security and risk assessment that reduces the time and complexity of the assurance process, ensuring a faster, more cost-effective and more sustainable solution.
Accenture’s Cyber Assurance Integration Framework (CAIF) enables continuous authorization and integrates Information Assurance (IA) with DevSecOps automation to accelerate compliance processes and provide a proactive, integrated and risk-based approach to identifying security issues.
Working with CAIF, agencies have accelerated A&A package development and authorization approvals by as much as 50% while freeing up skilled security personnel from routine administrative tasks so they can focus on mission-essential work.
Through an innovative, first-of-its-kind agreement with our Novetta acquisition, we are an authorized reseller for Platform One, the U.S. Air Force’s software development platform. Platform One is an official U.S. Department of Defense DevSecOps Enterprise Services team accessible DOD-wide.
Defense agencies and accredited contractors can take advantage of Platform One’s Iron Bank and Big Bang products with integrated support from Accenture Federal Services. Big Bang is the platform’s Infrastructure-as-Code and Configuration-as-Code environment, and Iron Bank provides container registry services.
Our support for Platform One is designed to strengthen the DOD software supply chain, providing enhanced access to innovative solutions via an expanded network of industry suppliers.
