Deloitte Consulting Is Irresponsible, Lacks Integrity, and Is Unreliable, Says Accenture

“[The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration] ignored information that, by its nature, would be expected to have a strong bearing on whether the intended awardee is ‘responsible,’ that is, whether it has the capability in all respects to fully perform the contract requirements and the integrity and reliability that will assure good faith performance.”

Accenture lawyers said in the consulting firm’s challenge to Deloitte Consulting being awarded a $135 million contract by the state of Florida to modernize the state’s Medicaid system.

Deloitte, Accenture, IBM, and other consulting firms competed for the contract, with the agency ultimately entering into negotiations with Deloitte and Accenture before choosing Deloitte.

Accenture and IBM are protesting the contract, saying the criteria was changed in the middle of the procurement process and that the AHCA didn’t factor in Deloitte’s previous work on the state’s crappy unemployment system.

Accenture’s and IBM’s challenges were sent to the state’s Division of Administrative Hearings on Sept. 14. Administrative Law Judge G.W. Chisenhall has been assigned to hear the cases.

  1. Ah yes, Deloitte deliberately messed up the unemployment system at the request of Florida Governor Scott.
    Every year I teach ethics to accounting students I seem to get a gift from the powers that be.

  2. Sounds like a bunch of salty complaints that just don’t have something that would have set them apart from the rest of the field. Stop complaining and go develop something innovative.

    1. True, consultants are overrated. DTT is chosen because of its price, Accenture is a completely different animal when comes to price, and actually reflective of their end products. I know they also had bad marks over the years, that’s because of lack of enforcement from the state, you give them an opportunity to Milk you, asking for exploitation, they are a profit orientated company after all. Government don’t care because it’s not Their money, it’s your tax money.
      Private consultancy contracts has higher rate of delivering good products from both as common sense.
      I once knew a guy who worked for DTT consulting, quit because finds it too unethical, giving out promotions to staff twice a year upon joining that year as a graduate – only because they can charge more to clients with higher titles – that sums it up.
      Without consulting DTT hardly make any profits period.

    2. well Accenture doesn’t help their employees get on projects. Managing Directors do nothing to help.. actually the only time they setup meetings with you is when they need to lay you off..

      Of course they talk about “The Accenture Way” as the best way.. The Accenture Way is to give 2 weeks severance during COVID19. What a bullshit company. My advice is to never work for that shitty company
