Fiscal Management Transformation

The Fiscal Management Transformation Priority Area focuses on modernizing federal financial information to standardize solutions and provide accountability to taxpayers.

Goal Statement

  • Modernize the production of financial information to efficiently and effectively manage operations of the Federal Government and provide accountability to taxpayers.
  • Provide opportunities for federal agencies to consolidate financial management requirements to develop and implement standardized solutions.
  • Align with the government-wide human capital strategy to recruit, develop, empower, and retain the financial management workforce for the 21st Century.
  • Engage with stakeholders to improve the value of reporting and auditing.

Challenges

  • Over time, agencies have implemented financial management processes that are incompatible, operating in silos, highly tailored to their specific needs, and unable to share or compare information.
  • Financial management modernization efforts present unique human capital challenges encompassing a wide range of job classifications, technical skills, and geographic needs.
  • Resistance to change held by financial management policy and oversight communities have resulted in capability gaps, fragmentation, and duplication.
  • Agencies are in various phases of the systems lifecycle, standards adoption, and implementation.

Opportunities

  • Leverage investments and lessons learned from the past to inform the path towards financial management modernization.
  • Improve on existing resources, tools, and best practices to optimize financial management processes to drive better outcomes.
  • Connect talented candidates to address critical financial management needs, build institutional knowledge, and ensure successful succession planning.
