Hello, Guest!

Executive spotlights are in-depth Q&A’s which ExecutiveBiz conducts with numerous chief and top-level executives in GovCon.
The intimate access afforded by these interviews provides insight as to how companies are acquiring new business, what the future holds and the personal side of corporate leaders.
This past week, ExecutiveBiz published a spotlight on Joe Chenelle of Accenture.
He currently serves as managing director of the company’s U.S. defense and intelligence portfolio.
Executivebiz and Chenelle discussed a DCMA contract where Accenture will modernize the agency’s IT infrastructure, how his experience with the DLA has prepared him for the DCMA contract and how Accenture Federal is primed to grow in the upcoming years.
Chenelle explained that the DCMA is “responsible for ensuring that DoD contractors working at home and abroad are reporting their cost and schedules accurately. It is governed by the Earned Value Management Center,  established by the National Defense Industry Association.”
He added that Accenture will “help  create a framework that standardizes contract management and metrics by deploying analytics, improving their workflow and streamlining the processes.”
“In the future, DCMA wants to provide more consistency, standardization and automation in their review processes versus what is today largely an on-site or paper exercise.For example, a key benefit would include the ability for contractors to submit electronic reports. This will  reduce the cycle times and increase the throughput and consistency of what the agency does, Chenelle added.”
Chenelle said about the work his company will do “This should be a win-win for contractors and the government to get greater standardization, greater understanding of a process and to automate processes for increased  visibility. The design also calls for a Web-based portal that should streamline operations and give online access to each program’s performance.”
