MMS Awards Contract For Royalty Reengineering

Monday, October 11, 1999
The U.S. Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service awarded a $47 million, seven-year contract to Andersen Consulting to develop, install and operate an integrated financial system that will improve the Federal government's Royalty Management Program (RMP). With the signing of this contract, MMS fully enters the implementation phase of its reengineering initiative, which was spurred by aging computer systems, changing energy markets, and the need to place its business enterprise on business cycles and processes that better align with industry and financial institutions. The RMP, which is charged with collecting, accounting for and distributing billions of dollars in revenues associated with minerals activity on Federal and American Indian lands, has been dependent upon systems that were developed in the early 1980's. Andersen Consulting will employ a relational database management system as it integrates commercial, off-the-shelf products along with customized products to accommodate the needs of MMS's future financial system. Additionally, Andersen Consulting will provide technical and integration support services to introduce a variety of technologies including data warehousing, workflow, document management, geographic information systems and online analytical processing tools.
