Friday, October 19, 2012

Accenture, the global consulting firm based in Dublin, Ireland and with an office in San Diego, was awarded a $25 million contract from the U.S. Navy to provide support services to the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific, the company said.

Accenture, which was spun off from failed Arthur Andersen in 2001, will provide program management and engineering services in support of the Navy’s research and development unit based in San Diego through a division called Accenture Federal Services.

Engineering support includes command and intelligence systems analysis, concept definition, system development and design for implementation, integration and upgrades.

The three-year contract with a two-year option has the potential value of $43 million, the company said.

Accenture said its federal business serves every cabinet level department and 20 of the largest federal organizations. Its U.S. portfolio spans across clients in civilian, defense, intelligence and public safety agencies, the company said.

For its fiscal year ended Aug. 31, Accenture generated net revenue of nearly $28 billion. The company has 257,000 employees working in 120 countries, the consultant said.
