Accenture bags $73m contract from US DLA

To reduce DLA's systems support cost and customer wait times

By CBR Staff Writer

Accenture has received a new four-year contract worth $73m from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), to integrate DLA’s energy supply chain into its enterprise business system (EBS) program.

The energy convergence program is designed to incorporate DLA’s energy supply chain business into its enterprise resource planning architecture, which Accenture introduced in 2000 via the business systems modernisation contract.

Under the agreement, Accenture will integrate a client-specific oil offering to meet DESC requirements, working with both DLA EBS personnel and Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) fuels managers.

Accenture said that its offering will streamline operations, integrate financial activities, reduce systems support cost, and provide DLA with total asset visibility and reduce customer wait times.

Accenture US federal practice managing director Lisa Mascolo said that bringing energy into the EBS environment is DLA’s final step in achieving an efficient logistics system.

"We look forward to helping DLA and DESC continue providing for America’s armed forces through an efficient, reliable and speedy supply chain that meets the ever-changing needs of DLA’s customers," Mascolo said.
