Bureau of Fiscal Service primes network for influx of new customers

The Treasury Department's Bureau of Fiscal Service has 40 customers buying financial management services, and it's expecting a spike in the coming year or so.

So BFS is preparing its systems and network today for the likely upsurge later.

The expected increase in customers comes from the Office of Management and Budget's requirement for agencies to move to a shared service provider for financial management unless they can justify why they should not move.

Kim McCoy, the chief information officer for the bureau, said the Fiscal Service is in the final stages of upgrading its financial management software, Oracle Federal Financials 11i, and has optimized its network to a great extent.

So the Fiscal Service needs to figure out what else it can do to prepare its systems and software for larger and more complex customers.
