Educational Testing Service, the leading provider of education assessments and psychometric research, has awarded Accenture a seven-year, $160m-contract extension to continue managing its end-to-end supply chain, under a business process outsourcing agreement.
Under the agreement, entered originally in 2005, Accenture will continue to manage all aspects of the ETS supply chain, including the printing, publishing, warehousing, distribution, tracking and shipping of tests and test materials to more than 10 million test takers in 160 countries every year. This allows ETS to continually improve the control, accuracy and integrity in its operations. Among other things, ETS provides the SAT and GRE tests.
"Working with Accenture these past five years, we have saved millions of dollars in print, transportation and supply chain costs - savings that we have been able to pass on to our customers, while continuing to provide them world-class service," said Diane Bailey, vice president of production and logistics at ETS.
