The demands of finance within government are changing quickly. How can government agencies prepare themselves and their employees to meet those demands? Rather than viewing this shift as a hurdle, it should be seen as an opportunity for federal agencies to leap forward in their capabilities and organizational value. By integrating strategic planning, automation and data analytics, finance organizations can retool their aging workforce, transcend their transactional role, and drive innovation, better decision-making, and enhanced mission execution.

How we can help

After a century of partnering with Federal agencies, we have a nuts-and-bolts understanding of the complexities of government accounting, budgeting, and financial management, and regulatory requirements.

We also know what it takes to become a high-performing finance organization. Whether you need audit readiness, audit sustainment, or financial transformation, we work with you to deliver custom tools and methodologies, develop innovative strategies, leverage automation, and reskill your workforce to enable greater insights. Our focus is to help agencies strategize and implement a transformation roadmap to make better decisions, meet regulatory demands, monitor performance, and promote accountability - all while being effective stewards of federal funds.

What are the potential benefits? 

  • A strategic and purposeful transition roadmap will position the finance organization to be a part of the decision-making process, not just reporting the results of decisions made by others. 
  • With less administrative dollars in federal budgets, the automation of transactional tasks enables financial management and accounting personnel  to focus on more analytical and strategic tasks.
  •  As traditional, historical analysis transitions into predictive analytics, capabilities shift from only knowing “What happened?” to understanding “How will this impact the future?” and “What should we do about it?”
