Most federal agencies have discovered converting to the new U.S. Treasury Government Invoicing platform is more complex and time consuming than they first expected. Implementing can take months to years, depending on the agency. Each federal agency should consider these factors to help ensure successful implementation:
- Consider how the implementation impacts stakeholders. Take advantage of partnerships within your organization and among trading partners to avoid operating in silos.
- Understand G-Invoicing implementation is more than a system change. It requires data cleansing and new systems, policies, and procedures.
- Implementation requires a phased approach that considers trading partner progress, internal complexities, and change management so employees know how the mandate will affect their work.
- Leaders and stakeholders must define success up front for each implementation phase to manage participants’ expectations.
