Accenture ‘mapping’ govt officials to win contracts

Accenture is mapping government officials, their relationships and “social styles”, sharing it within the tech services firm to prepare bids for lucrative government contracts.

The firm — which has landed hundreds of contracts worth a combined $2.7 billion in the last decade, but been a major part of several recent failed tech projects — conceded to “power mapping” this week.

It said the information is restricted within the firm, but declined to provide a real example to the Senate, while rivals KPMG, Deloitte, EY, Boston Consulting Group McKinsey and the embattled PwC denied using the practice altogether.
