Accenture has signed a €12m IT application services agreement with the European Parliament to develop and support a variety of applications across the Parliament’s operations.

This contract, awarded after a competitive public procurement process, will provide application development, maintenance and support for the European Parliament.

Accenture will oversee the development and integration of new applications across functional areas, such as finance, logistics, human resources and administrative management.

“Both businesses and governments are increasingly seeking application development support to ensure their organisations operate to the highest standards to drive efficiencies,” said Sean Shine, managing director of Accenture Health & Public Service practice in Europe, Africa and Latin America.

“For the European Parliament, Accenture will analyse, design, build, test and implement new functions and applications as a managed service over the next four years,” Shine said.
