Accenture has won a one-year contract to provide information technology services to the Netherlands’ social affairs agency, within the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
The company said it will provide the agency application outsourcing for a Filenet system, kown as DIANE, which the company implemented for the agency under a previous contract.
This technology system “administers a wide range of subsidies and grants that are important to many Dutch citizens,” said Gerco Landman of Accenture’s Netherlands-based health and human services practice.
According to the company, the Dutch government uses the system to distribute nearly $1 billion in subsidies and grants per year.
The agency uses the system to administer subsidies relating to socio-economic policy, particularly employment and income-support programs, financed by the European Union as well as some nationally-financed programs.
