IFS has entered a new partnership with Amentum, which will integrate IFS Applications into its solutions for its commercial and government clients in the aerospace and defence sectors, including the US Department of Defense (DoD), US Air Force, US Army, US Navy, US Department of State and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Amentum supports critical programmes of national significance in areas including nuclear and environment; mission support and sustainment; threat mitigation; mission assurance; and strategic capabilities engineering in critical infrastructures, both in the US and abroad.

IFS capabilities will be integrated within the Amentum SupplyTRACSM offering and will provide Amentum customers with leading-edge functionality for supply chain optimisation, asset management, predictive maintenance, and procurement. Amentum SupplyTRACSM is currently being leveraged as a comprehensive, integrated platform with numerous opportunities with the US Government.

Amentum, based in Maryland and with a 20,000-strong workforce, was recently formed as an independent company following AECOM’s sale of its Management Services business to a private equity partnership. Amentum has been using IFS Applications internally since 2018 for supply chain management.

“As extensive users of the IFS suite, we are excited to offer our customers this advanced platform for supply chain management to help them realise similar transformational business benefits,” said Ron Hahn, Amentum’s Executive Vice President of Strategic Growth. “Through our strategic partnership with IFS, we are bringing new solutions to our government customers in defence and energy, as well as our commercial customers at locations around the world. These capabilities will differentiate us in the marketplace and enable our customers to achieve new efficiencies by applying this powerful technology to solve their unique and complex challenges.”

Scott Helmer, President, IFS Aerospace & Defence, said: “This new relationship with Amentum will bring the capabilities of IFS and SupplyTRACSM to federal government and private clients globally. IFS has a long and successful track record of supporting organisations to meet stringent industry requirements such as sensitive and classified information handling in a broad set of areas including procurement, asset management and maintenance, repair and overhaul, while managing complex government contracting vehicles.”
