FDIC has selected 14 technology companies—including Accenture Federal Services, LLC, Fed Reporter, Inc, and S&P Global Market Intelligence, LLC—for inclusion in the next phase of the rapid prototyping competition. In June 2020, FDIC had launched the rapid prototyping competition, which is a tech sprint designed to develop an innovative new approach to financial reporting, particularly for community banks. The rapid phased prototyping procurement model uses a “show me, don’t tell me” approach, asking competitors to rapidly produce working prototypes of new technologies over several competitive phases. In the next phase, the finalists will demonstrate their prototypes in 70 days.
The objective of the competition is to develop technology for a timelier and less burdensome financial reporting process. Once completed, the system would better equip regulators to detect signs of risk and to take early actions designed to protect consumers, banks, financial system, and the economy. FDIC has awarded initial contracts to the following companies:
- Accenture Federal Services, LLC
- ACTUS Financial Research Foundation, Inc.
- Amberoon, Inc.
- Donnelley Financial, LLC
- DSQuorum, LLC (Data Society)
- Fed Reporter, Inc.
- Fidelity Information Services, LLC
- First Data Government Solutions, LP (Fiserv)
- Neocova Corporation
- Novantas, Inc.
- Palantir Technologies Inc.
- Synthetic P2P Holding Corporation (PeerIQ)
- S&P Global Market Intelligence, LLC
- TrueTandem, LLC
