HUNTSVILLE — Guidehouse, a provider of consulting, digital, and managed services to commercial and public sector clients, has been awarded an $89.9 million contract to support the Army Materiel Command’s financial management transformation.
McLean, Va.-based Guidehouse has an office at Huntsville’s Redstone Gateway.
The Army is engaged in a complex and challenging business transformation to revolutionize its financial management processes, business rules, and systems to provide more accurate, timely and useful financial information to decision makers, Guidehouse said in a news release..
Headquartered at Redstone Arsenal, the AMC is responsible for managing the Army’s global supply chain. The AMC is one of the Army’s largest commands with more than 165,000 military, civilian and contractor employees, impacting all 50 states and more than 150 countries.
The Army Working Capital Fund’s audit readiness efforts are part of a high priority, DoD and Army-wide audit readiness mission, bringing financial accountability, data-driven decision-making, improved security, and taxpayer stewardship to operations, Guidehouse said. AMC is accountable for much of the progress AWCF needs to make, and Guidehouse will be the primary contract support provider.
“We are incredibly excited and honored by the opportunity to partner with AMC on the next phase of their critical transformation initiative,” said John Saad, Partner and Guidehouse’s Defense and Security Segment Leader. “We provide a unique combination of the technical and domain experience needed to help Army meet its AWCF audit readiness objectives.”
Through this support, Guidehouse will help advance Army’s financial statement audit progress by both facilitating audit execution and remediating known weaknesses through the improvement of business processes, controls, and data analytics.
“This project further demonstrates our commitment to the greater Huntsville area and economy, as we’ve now grown to several hundred local employees, based out of our office by the gates of Redstone,” Saad said.
