G2X TAKE: Only a few days removed from the announcement that Accenture had purchased a CIO-SP3 SB prime and Health Informatics Specialist, comes news this morning they are acquiring a fast rising Federally focused Salesforce Platinum Consulting Partner with an existing VA footprint.
With VA continuing to invest in Salesforce, the capacity and capabilities gained here are certain to be welcomed by the Accenture Federal Health group. Phase One Consulting Group has had their share of success at the VA in the past as both a sub and prime, to include efforts such as providing IT implementation, program management support, and strategic transformation services across VA’s Eliminating Veteran Homelessness (EVH) initiative and as a prime on a recent award to support OI&T on iOS and Android Mobile app development efforts.
