NEW YORK, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- The California Public Employees' Retirement System has hired Accenture Ltd. to modernize its computer systems.

The 5-year, $199 million contract envisions the pension system "moving to a Web-based delivery approach built on an integrated, flexible, service-oriented architecture," Accenture said Monday in a statement.
