"Accenture Ltd. has been selected by the Air Force to install the service's Defense Enterprise Accounting and Management System (DEAMS).
Under a $79.5 million fixed-price task order contract, Accenture of Hamilton, Bermuda, will implement Oracle Corp.'s E-Business Suite software at Scott Air Force Base by March 2007 and deploy the system across all of the service by 2010.
DEAMS is a co-production of the Air Force, Transportation Command, and Defense Finance and Accounting Service and will provide general ledger and other financial reporting functions.
DOD took the first step in this process in July, buying Oracle Corp.'s Joint Financial Improvement software for $22.7 million.
Under the contract, Accenture will ensure that the configuration, deployment and training of DEAMS meets Air Force, USTRANSCOM and DFAS requirements, officials said. "
