Accenture(NYSE:ACN) has been selected by the Junta of Andalusia to upgrade
and maintain the human resources system for the Andalusian public
education system. The one-year IT contract runs through December 2014.
Accenture will provide functional and technical expertise from its
delivery center locations in Spain to maintain the system that serves
approximately 100,000 teachers and 4,000 schools. The system supports
payroll generation, management of teacher vacancies and substitutions,
and various e-services and paperless administrative initiatives, such as
virtual office and notifications. New mobile applications will be
developed and incorporated into efforts to make the system more
effective and user-friendly.

management of the education department define goals and strategies,
communicate status of initiatives to internal stakeholders, and compare
student performance metrics across cities and provinces.

strengthen this major system serving Andalusian education," said Antonio
Diaz Almagro, Accenture managing director. "Teachers and, indeed, the
whole Andalusian education community will benefit as we bring modern
technology to one of Europe's biggest public education systems."
