Accenture has been awarded a contract by the Norwegian Armed Forces to implement an SAP solution to better support the core processes in logistics. The contract has a term limit of three-and-a-half-years and is worth $70 million.
The terms of the contract require Accenture to design and configure a solution based on the SAP for Defense & Security solution portfolio. This enables clients to expand and improve its solutions and processes in force generation in structure maintenance, procurement and supply chain management, among others.
“This project provides the client access to Accenture's global skills in support of SAP solutions and leverages our global experience of delivering similar projects for other defense forces and government clients around the world,“ said Tonje Sandberg, of Accenture Health & Public Service Norway.
The project will also implement a mobile and deployed solution to support the Norwegian Armed Forces operations for mobile units and certain Maritime and NATO missions. The logistics solution will replace a number of existing information systems, enabling the Norwegian Armed Forces to reduce costs across its operations.
