Accenture [ACN] this week said its federal business won a potential $199 million contract from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to consolidate three credentialing systems into a single platform to improve operations.
The award is potentially for seven years and will consolidate the Technology Infrastructure Modernization, Transportation Vetting System, and Screening Gateway. The task order was awarded in December and announced by Accenture Federal Services on Monday.
TSA said that a final date for the consolidation has yet to be determined. Accenture Federal Services will use an adaptive maintenance process that allows the respective credentialing systems to continue operating as the new platform is stood up.
“These three systems play a critical role in delivering credentials to approximately 30 million individuals, including TSA PreCheck customers, transportation workers, airline crews and hazmat drivers, among others,” Anthony Pinheiro, TSA lead and managing director at Accenture Federal Services, said in a statement.
Accenture will also provide project management, cybersecurity and operations support services.
The work is in support of TSA’s Information Technology, Technology Solutions Division.
Accenture and IBM [IBM] were the incumbents on previous related work.
