Amprion Selects Accenture to Operate Procurement Function

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been selected by Amprion Ltd., Germany’s largest transmission system operator, to help optimize its procurement function and improve its competitive positioning in a rapidly changing market. Terms of the 5-year outsourcing agreement were not disclosed.

Accenture will be responsible for managing the purchase of all goods and services for Amprion, from negotiations with suppliers to the review and settlement of invoices, in order to improve processes and lower total costs. Accenture will also provide a procurement help desk capability.

Under the European Union's third common energy market directive and the German energy act, Amprion and RWE are required to completely unbundle their procurement processes, which until now were shared by the two companies. RWE holds a 25.1% share in Amprion.

"Accenture looks forward to working with Amprion to further optimize its procurement processes," said Andreas Wisser, a senior executive in Accenture’s Utilities industry group. “This agreement should enable Amprion to focus more on its core business: the upgrading and operation of its high voltage network.”

Accenture will run and maintain the procurement function from Dortmund and its Delivery Centers in Prague and Bratislava.

With a length of 11,000 kilometers and 160 relay stations between Lower Saxony and the borders to Switzerland and Austria, Amprion owns the longest high voltage network in Germany. Due to its central position in Europe, Amprion’s network is an important hub for electricity trading in Europe. Its home page is www.amprion.net.
