The Air Force has tapped Accenture to help it overhaul the human resources system it uses to service more than 600,000 personnel.
The digital services company secured a $49.4 million task order to modernize the Air Force Integrated Personnel and Pay System (AFIPPS), which manages the payroll, leave-management and core human resources functions for the service.
Accenture officials said in a statement Thursday that the company will develop “a web-enabled enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution” to combine multiple pay and personnel processes into a single system.
“The AFIPPS contract demonstrates the Air Force’s commitment to modernize its business practices and provide enhanced support for today’s service members and their families,” said George Batsakis, defense portfolio lead at Accenture Federal Services. “We’re honored to help the Air Force advance its innovation agenda and support HR modernization to better support the people who serve our nation.”
AFIPPS was first devised in 2012, when the Air Force moved to replace the Military Personnel Data System (MilPDS) and the Defense Joint Military (Pay) System (DJMS).
The new contract has a three-year base period.
