The FBI awarded Accenture Federal Services a $100 million contract to help the bureau modernize its digital human resources capabilities.
Accenture will begin working before the end of the fiscal year to help the FBI update its HR Source application, which was originally built around Oracle’s PeopleSoft Human Capital Management system.
The contracted team, in addition to operating and maintaining the FBI’s current human resources systems, will work to move legacy systems offline, improve data analytic capabilities, and build an employee and supervisor web portal. This modernization will enable the bureau to “gain greater insight and increase efficiencies to reduce administrative burdens for FBI employees across the country,” according to a release.
Accenture has an ongoing relationship working with the FBI to manage and consult on its HR systems, the release says.
“The FBI requires a workforce that is as diverse as the population it serves, with the skills and experience to match,” Vinicio Ingrao, Accenture program manager for the HR Source contract, said in a statement. “Over the last five years, the FBI and Accenture have laid the foundation to achieve this through the implementation of HR Source. Now more than ever, the FBI has greater insight into its applicants and employee workforce. This award enables the FBI to continue to build upon these capabilities to serve changing mission, workforce and business needs in the years to come.”
The contract is a seven-year blanket purchase agreement, which will allow the FBI to purchase provision HR modernization services as it needs them up to the $100 million limit.
