US Army contract for ERP validation services

Capgemini Government Solutions
: 08 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Capgemini to focus on Enterprise Requirements Planning for the US army in 5-year contract for verification and validation services
Capgemini Government Solutions has been awarded a five-year, $88 million contract by the US Army to provide Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) support services for the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS), the organization responsible for providing infrastructure and information management systems to the Army.


PEO EIS is establishing an IV&V function at the Army Enterprise level to improve enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations. This will help to reduce the total costs associated with the Army’s ERP programs and to provide an enterprise view across the entire Army, thus addressing the Army’s goal of Total Asset Visibility (TAV).

Capgemini will support the Army’s five ERP programs, including: Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-A), Logistics Modernization Program (LMP), General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS), Army-Defense Integrated Manpower and Human Resources System (DIMHRS-A), and the Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP, formerly PLM+). Capgemini’s scope of work will include providing – collectively at the enterprise level and individually at the project level – broad-based IV&V services encompassing Army ERPs within the purview of PEO EIS, including future ERP program requirements.

“Capgemini’s past experience working with the US Army and the Department of Defence, coupled with our strong knowledge of the Army’s requirements and challenges, provides the necessary insight to develop a collaborative partnership with PEO EIS and to meet and ultimately exceed their needs,” said Joe Moye, head of Capgemini Public Sector in North America.
“Capgemini’s strategic approach to enterprise resource planning will allow the Army to rapidly deliver on its mission of ERP implementations improvement at a reduced cost.”

In addition to providing ERP IV&V services, the Capgemini team will develop, operate and maintain an automated Central Risk Repository for the PEO EIS that is designed to track and monitor information related to the validation services performed. Capgemini will collaborate with a number of subcontractors to complete the project, including American Systems, Business Management International Inc., CSCL, Exalt, Hampton University, Lighthouse Technologies Inc., New Vectors, PRTM and Pragmatics.
