DLA data management work to be done by Accenture

The Defense Logistics Agency has awarded a $6.3 million contract to Accenture Ltd. to provide IT support for DLA's Product Data Management Initiative.

The project is designed to replace the Defense Logistics Agency's existing repository for technical data.

The contract covers the first phase of the initiative, which includes document management services, business process re-engineering, automation of key business processes, change management services, training and organizational design services.

The contract also calls for Accenture to design the business processes for DLA's technical and quality organization in support of aircraft launch and recovery equipment, critical safety items and individual repair parts ordering data.

Accenture will lead a change management program with the agency, government customers and industry. The company also will provide training for those participating in the initiative and will evaluate the technical and quality organizational structure in order to recommend business process re-engineering improvements.
