The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded a $49 million IDIQ contract vehicle to KPMG, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm, for intelligent automation and artificial intelligence (IAAI) products and services.

The contract is intended to help federal agencies pilot, test and implement artificial intelligence, blockchain, machine learning, natural language processing and robotic process automation tools. KPMG is helping the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) automate the validation of tens of thousands of medical records by using RPA, machine learning and other IA tools.

“We’re thrilled to be selected and look forward to continuing our work delivering IA and AI solutions to HHS and many other agencies,” said Chris Marston, who leads KPMG’s federal advisory practice. “The automation solution we’ve delivered to the CMS is an example of the kind of innovation we intend to deliver on this contract.”
