CMS awards $199M FFM Bridge Contract, while protest of $400M CMS Federally Facilitated Exchange Support Task continues

Updated January 12, 2021

G2X TAKE: Accenture Federal Services, a global consulting firm focused on helping Federal agencies to transform—becoming more customer-centered, data-driven, efficient and secure, has been awarded an 18-month bridge contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The first 6 months of funds, in the amount of $66M, was obligated upon award of the bridge contract. The contract was awarded using CMS SPARC and was not competed, citing only one source.  

No further details have been provided at this time as to next steps for the latest protest identified below challenging a 2019 award to Deloitte.


Updated December 9, 2020 

G2X TAKE: More than a year after the initial award was made, a fresh challenge has now been filed by Accenture Federal Services in relation to this high-profile 5-year requirement to provide support for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Federally Facilitated Exchange. 

No details are available as to the grounds for the protest at this time but they will be shared here as they are available. The listed due date for a decision is no later than March 17, 2021. 

Details on the prior sequence of actions is available in the thread below. 

Competed using CMS SPARC and drawing two bids, this award to Deloitte was just one in a series of wins the firm added at CMS in 2019. Details Here.

G2X TAKE: The latest protest action filed by Accenture in relation to this 5-year task, awarded late last year to Deloitte, to provide support for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Federally Facilitated Exchange has now been dismissed.

Please note that a ‘dismissal’ by GAO does not necessarily mean the issue is resolved and oftentimes only indicates the contracting authority/agency has agreed to proactively take some corrective action to address a deficiency identified as part of the protest process. More information will be provided here as it is made available.
