To provide program-management and business-architecture services for Risk MAP program
Accenture has won a five-year $58m contract with the US Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide program-management and business-architecture services for the agency’s Flood Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning, Risk MAP, program.
The company will work with the agency’s mitigation directorate to manage the Risk MAP program to combine the work and activities of other contractors with FEMA’s efforts. It will also design and implement a nationwide communications and outreach strategy, and foster partnerships with FEMA stakeholders.
Jerry Briggs, managing director for US federal practice at Accenture, said: The work we will be doing with FEMA on Risk MAP aligns with our commitment to helping our clients serve their clients – in this case, people who live in areas that are prone to weather-related issues.
Other US government contracts the company has won recently include last December’s $87m contract from the Maryland Board of Public Works to deploy a new integrated tax system for the state. In October it won a $22.18m contract from the US Air Force’s Electronic Systems Center, Hanscom Air Force Base, to expand existing services and prototype advanced modeling and simulation technology.
