Accenture wins $550-million, 10-year contract from Bristol-Myers Squibb

The “bundled” services agreement extends a four-year outsourcing agreement the two companies signed in 2004 for application maintenance and accounts payable services and expands the scope to include additional application maintenance services, application development services and global financial support services.

Accenture will provide these services to Bristol-Myers Squibb in the Americas, Asia, and EMEA regions in 22 languages through Accenture’s Global Delivery Network, which includes more than 50 delivery centres across five continents.

The agreement provides dedicated global IT and financial support services to Bristol-Myers Squibb to help achieve operational cost savings and flexibility. The agreement is also designed to enable Bristol-Myers Squibb to more effectively manage its business, by providing a variable cost structure to address varying economic factors, such as patent lifecycles.
