David Mader, controller at the Office of Management and Budget, has said he is committed to helping other federal agencies implement a shared services model across multiple back-office functions, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.
Jason Miller writes Mader is leading an OMB initiative to help agencies use shared service providers to manage financial infrastructure.
“I feel very good about the progress that we as a government are making on shared services,” Mader told the radio station.
“I think we need to look at besides financial services are there more opportunities in applying this concept to, say, human capital or to acquisition?” he added, according to the report.
The station reports that OMB and the Treasury Department‘s financial innovation and transformation office are analyzing how four authorized federal shared services providers make technology or human resource investments as part of a supply-demand study.
Mader noted to the station the analysis could help OMB decide whether to enlist another agency or a company as a provider.
