Justice signs deal for debt collection support

The Justice Department has awarded a contract to Accenture for a system to provide debt collection support following a competitive procurement, officials said. The contract could amount to about $54 million over its first year and seven option years, officials said.

The Consolidated Debt Collection System procurement attracted major bids from incumbent contractor CACI of Arlington, Va., as well as AMS of Fairfax Va., industry sources said.

The Justice Management Division will use the system as a tool to help attorneys and other officials work out the final stages of collecting debts owed to the federal government. One of the system's functions will be marshalling information needed to support lawsuits against individuals and corporations that allegedly owe money to Uncle Sam. Another function will be to monitor payment agreements.
