British Petroleum (BP) has extended the agreement with Accenture to continue provision of the finance and accounting (F&A) business process services through 2021.

As per the agreement, which was last revised in 2012, Accenture will provide BP with finance and accounting (F&A) operations and services such as purchase-to-pay, order-to-cash, record-to-report, hydrocarbon (oil and gas) value chain accounting, as well as procurement services.

Accenture says that it will use intelligent automation and advanced analytics capabilities, along with its experience in the industry to bring continued efficiency and improvements in productivity.

BP Global Business Services vice president Brian Puffer said: “Since 2012, Accenture has teamed with BP’s Global Business Services (GBS) function to drive end-to-end process efficiencies, standardisation and controls.

“We look forward to their continued support and significant automation and productivity gains over the next five years.”

AI can add $814bn to the UK economy by 2035.

The services will be provided by Accenture through its Global Delivery Centres in Bangalore, Manila, Buenos Aires, Krakow, San Antonio and Milton Keynes.
