Nuremberg, Germany (March 7, 2003) -- Consulting giant Accenture has been awarded a five-year, $50 million contract by the Bundesanstalt fur Arbeit, Germany's federal labor office, to design, build and operate a job portal that will help link employers and job seekers with officials at the labor office via the Internet.The project is part of a larger package of measures to help the nation's 4.6 million unemployed citizens find jobs. The portal will contain listings for job openings that have been posted with the Bundesanstalt fur Arbeit and will be linked to select job exchanges to give German citizens a single online resource to search electronic job opportunity databases.

Bundesanstalt fur Arbeit and Accenture will demonstrate a prototype of the new job portal and its job search capabilities at the CeBIT Fair in Germany next month.
