Office of Personnel Management (OPM)
Mark Reger - Chief Financial Officer
Changes are coming to OPM, at least when it comes to its Financial Management Line of Business program. After initially looking at a system replacement back in 2004 and 2005 with a shared system service provider, CFO Mark Reger says OPM is ready to go ahead and issue an RFQ for a financial system procurement. Reger says OPM had been following OMB's Financial Line of Business process but that everything is in place for OPM to move forward alone with what will be a two step process. Adding to the motivation, the accounting system now in use has software that's no longer supported by the manufacturer and that some processes still require OPM to turn to accountants armed with pencils and spreadsheets.
