IT consulting firm Accenture has won a business architecture and program management contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The deal is worth $58 million and has a one-year base period and four one-year options.

Accenture will provide business architecture services for FEMA’s Flood Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (“Risk MAP”) program. The Risk MAP program is designed to help reduce the risk of damage caused by natural hazards.

The IT consulting firm will work with FEMA’s mitigation directorate to manage the Risk MAP program, including the work and activities of multiple organizations across several other Risk MAP contracts; integrate the work and activities of other contractors with FEMA’s efforts; design and implement a nationwide communications and outreach strategy; and foster partnerships with key FEMA stakeholders.

“The work we’ll be doing with FEMA on Risk MAP aligns with our commitment to helping our clients serve their clients — in this case, people who live in areas that are prone to weather-related issues,” said Jerry Briggs, managing director of Accenture’s U.S. federal practice.
