Accenture Federal Services has been awarded a $98m contract by the Defense Health Agency (DHA). The contract aims to further enhance and operate the Joint Medical Common Operating Picture (MedCOP), a platform that provides crucial medical command and control situational awareness for the Department of Defense (DoD), combatant commands and the Armed Services.

This strategic partnership will enable Accenture Federal Services to synchronize data across multiple network domains and deliver real-time collaboration and information sharing within and beyond the medical community.

With this latest contract, Accenture Federal Services will play a key role in expanding the platform’s capabilities, providing global visibility into DoD medical assets and missions.

The company will deliver services including cloud computing, cybersecurity, DevSecOps, agile software development, field service engineering, user adoption and training support across the Armed Services.

Kevin Heald, managing director and national security portfolio lead, Accenture Federal Services, emphasized the significance of a common operating picture and said: “A common operating picture is arguably one of the most effective tools in creating a shared understanding of the battlespace.”

This recognition underscores Accenture Federal Services’ commitment to supporting the DoD’s mission and its dedication to delivering critical solutions that improve decision-making processes.

The enhanced visibility will enable faster and more informed decision-making, contributing to improved operational efficiency and the overall effectiveness of military medical missions.

Chris Van Berkel, managing director and military health lead, Accenture Federal Services, said: “We look forward to providing a comprehensive picture into DoD medical assets and missions to increase visibility into unit health, equipment and supplies and enable faster and more informed decision-making.”

The MedCOP contract has a five-year performance period, allowing Accenture Federal Services ample time to deploy its expertise and support the evolution of the platform. The company’s track record in delivering innovative solutions, coupled with its extensive experience in the federal services sector, positions it as a reliable partner for the DoD and its medical operations.
