Item 5.  Other Events.

         In light of press reports on the proposed settlement of Enron-related
claims against Andersen Worldwide and the non-U.S. Arthur Andersen firms,
Accenture confirms its understanding that, under the terms of the proposed
settlement with the plaintiffs in the Houston class actions on behalf of
shareholders and employees of Enron, Accenture will be released from all claims
that were brought, or might have been brought, by these plaintiff groups once
the settlement is finally approved by the court. As described under "Legal
Proceedings" in Accenture's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended May 31, 2002,
Accenture had previously signed agreements with the lead class-action plaintiffs
extending any deadlines by which it had to be added as a party to such lawsuits.
Accenture signed those agreements to give the company time to inform the
plaintiffs that adding Accenture as a defendant would be misdirected and without

         Accenture also confirmed that it is making no contribution to the

         The proposed class-action settlement is subject to customary
contingencies, such as the negotiation of a definitive agreement and final
approval by the federal court in Houston, Texas. This process is expected to
take several months.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
