US Army Cloud Computing Enterprise Transformation (ACCENT)
The Army’s Cloud Computing Contract Vehicle
ACCENT provides the DoD organizations a contract vehicle to procure commercial cloud service offerings (CSO) and IT technical support to transition enterprise applications to a commercial cloud environment. The objective is to move designated IT applications, systems, and associated data to authorized commercial cloud service providers (CSP).
ACCENT Basic Ordering Agreements (BOAs) allow capability owners to obtain commercial cloud hosting services in any combination of service models, deployment models, and Cloud Impact Level as defined in the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG), along with the transition support and modernization services required to move a system/ application to a cloud environment.

ACCENT is available for use by all DoD organizations and is the preferred contract vehicle to obtain commercial cloud hosting, transition support, and application modernization services.
