Marines tell Accenture to stop work

The Marine Corps has issued a stop-work order on a six-month, $4.5 million contract awarded to Accenture in July 2005 to design and implement the service's new global supply chain and maintenance system.

Capt. Jay Delarosa, a Marine spokesman, confirmed today that the service issued the stop-work order on the Global Combat Support System-Marine Corps. James McAvoy, an Accenture spokesman, said the company is in discussions with the Marines about it. Both men declined further comment.

The system, a logistics modernization program, will use Oracle’s E-Business Suite. The Marines selected the Oracle tool when evaluating enterprise resource planning products, and Accenture consequently included the software in its bid.
