The Australian Taxation Office’s $20.5 million amendment to its Accenture Single Touch Payroll-Program Works contract was the largest reported on AusTender last week (29 January-4 February 2016).
The value of the contract, which was originally published in 24 March 2015, has now increased to $45.8 million over the term. The contract will maintain its 31 December 2016 expiry date.
Single Touch Payroll intends to simplify employer reporting of Pay As You Go (PAYG) withholding obligations and superannuation contributions by allowing employers to automatically interface with the agency.
Accenture ranked fourth on Intermedium’s 2014-15 Federal Supplier Leader Board, behind Lockheed Martin, IBM and Datacom. The company signed 80 contracts worth a total of $264.5 million during the 2014-15 period.
2014-15 mirrored Accenture’s results for the past three years, where it consistently ranked as one of the top five Federal Government suppliers. Accenture has signed 394 contracts worth $1.4 billion since Intermedium began collecting contracting data in 2009-10.
