Item 5. Other Events.

        In light of Arthur Andersen LLP's current circumstances, Accenture and
Arthur Andersen LLP have renegotiated the service arrangements and training
facility use arrangement they entered into in 2001. These arrangements have been
disclosed previously in Accenture's filings with the Securities and Exchange
Commission. Accenture and Arthur Andersen LLP have entered into a new facility
services agreement which provides Accenture with the use of Arthur Andersen
LLP's training facility in St. Charles, Illinois, at market rates through
July 1, 2007. Accenture and Arthur Andersen LLP have terminated the prior St.
Charles facility services agreement, as well as the services agreements by which
Arthur Andersen LLP and other Arthur Andersen firms were to provide services,
including tax services, to Accenture and by which Accenture was to provide
Arthur Andersen LLP and other Arthur Andersen firms with consulting services.
The final payment by Accenture to Arthur Andersen LLP in connection with the
termination of these agreements is within the amounts Accenture had previously
accrued and will not have a material impact on Accenture's income statement.


         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.
