Accenture announced today it has completed the upgrade of NASA’s financial system, which manages the agency’s $16.5 billion budget and 18,000-person workforce.
According to the technology services and outsourcing company, NASA is the first federal agency to install the SAP ERP 2005 financial platform, which gives the space agency an improved technical architecture and better financial data tracking and reporting capabilities. Accenture said it also helps streamline the agency’s distribution of funds and aids in year-end funds processing and overall fiscal management.
No financial details of the installation were released.
The system upgrade affects more than 10,000 users throughout NASA, including those at 10 field centers, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the NASA Shared Services Center.
