Accenture has won an $87m contract from the Maryland Board of Public Works to deploy a new integrated tax system for the state.
The company will implement the Accenture Enterprise Revenue Solution that includes enhanced tax administration processing, receivables management, analytics, and data warehouse capabilities. The system uses commercial off-the-shelf software from SAP and Teradata. Accenture's team on the contract includes SAP, Teradata, and four Maryland-based minority business enterprises.
David Moskovitz, managing director at Accenture's US state and local public service division, said: "This program for a new tax system is designed to create a positive return for the state within three years. Accenture has helped many states apply innovative tax-compliance technology to improve efficiency and ease taxpayer compliance burdens."
