A challenging new system

"While the Homeland Security Department's eMerge2 financial system has taken a new direction in recent months, our need and our vision remain the same: Equip Homeland Security managers and leaders with the critical resource management information necessary to improve decision-making and to improve service delivery and efficiency.

The initial eMerge2 strategy to develop a new financial system was based in part on a 2003 assessment that concluded the mission support systems being inherited by the new department had limitations. Specifically, each of the systems examined failed to meet all mandatory requirements promulgated by the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program, the government's financial standards setting board. Based on this study's finding, and the fact that there were a number of new or transferred organizations that had no resource management systems, the decision was made to develop a new, integrated suite of resource management systems that would serve as a platform for the entire department.
