Consulting firm Guidehouse has been awarded a five-year contract from the Department of Defense (DoD) to transform its financial management.
As part of the contract, Guidehouse will provide operations support to the DoD’s deputy chief financial officer, working on the areas of audit remediation, financial management improvement, and data analysis.
The Washington, DC-based consultancy was the original prime contractor supporting the agency’s financial improvement and audit readiness project, and has maintained that role for the last 12 years.
“We take great pride in our team’s role as the financial management transformation leader in the DoD,” said Ed Meehan, Guidehouse’s defense segment leader.
The firm has been helping the DoD with its financial improvement journey through the development of roadmaps, performance metrics, policy, business process changes, financial and technology controls, systems rationalizations and modernization, and training. This includes advanced analytic capabilities and visualizations to provide greater visibility into the status and health of the agency’s resources.
“We are excited to continue our work in supporting the DoD as they transform their financial management approach,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse. “It‘s an honor for our financial management professionals to work with a great client addressing complex accounting, business process, information systems, and data challenges.”
Guidehouse’s defense practice supports the DoD with consulting in strategy, management, technology, and risk. The firm helps transform processes, people, and infrastructure to execute imperative mission sets; supports the implementation of new technology to achieve greater performance and increased affordability; and manage risks from multiple areas, including international conflict, malicious state and non-state actors, and policies and regulations.
Guidehouse is a relatively new consulting brand resulting from the combination of PwC’s Public Sector practice with Navigant, a global consultancy focusing on highly regulated industries. Veritas Capital bought PwC Public Sector in 2018, and then bolted on Navigant in 2019. Guidehouse offers advisory services to public and commercial sector clients, and has 8,000 professionals across more than 50 offices globally.
