Yesterday I mentioned the challenges that the FBI is having in bringing a case management IT project in on time.
It’s good to know then that the FBI will now be assisted in its ongoing delivery of IT by Accenture. Not for the case management project, but for an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to support the FBI’s Human Resources Information System (HRIS).
The award, under a General Services Administration IT schedule that provides technology support services to the FBI through a ‘Blanket Purchase Agreement’ (BPA) plus four task orders’ will enable Accenture Federal Services to oversee selection, installation, testing and support to the agency’s HR systems. Accenture also will complete a fit gap analysis to determine possible future costs to replace the FBI’s current HRIS systems.
Accenture said that by modernising its Human Resources information System, the FBI ‘will be able to increase effectiveness and streamline processes. These improvements will help the FBI develop a modern, on-demand system for accessing personnel information.’
