Accenture Federal Services has won two contracts totaling $31 million in support of the Navy's financial improvement program meant to assist the Navy in its drive toward financial auditability, according to a company statement.

“Ensuring that all internal financial controls provide accurate information will help the Navy meet all federal and Department of Defense guidelines toward auditability,” said Vince Vlasho, Accenture executive vice president for Navy & Marine Corps programs.

The first award is a three-year, $25.5 million contract that calls for comprehensive audit readiness services, including a review of business processes, internal controls and related systems to support improved business operations for the Marine Corps and six other commands.

On a second three-year, $5.37 million financial Information systems control audit manual contract, Accenture will evaluate the design and operating effectiveness of IT general computer controls and business process automated controls for the Navy enterprise resource planning system.

Work will include verifying processes, testing controls and supporting plant, property and equipment validation to help assess General Accountability Office compliance for the Navy ERP.

Both contracts support the Navy’s financial improvement program which aims to improve the accuracy, timeliness and reliability of financial information to increase confidence in the Navy’s financial management capabilities.
