The General Services Administration has facilitated an industry day to underscore the GSA Unified Shared Services Management office’s efforts to deliver government-wide shared services across agencies.
GSA said Monday government participants gave industry partners an overview of the federal shared services ecosystem during the event.
“Shared Services is about delivering mission support functions – acquisition, human resources, financial management – better, faster and more efficiently,” said USSM Executive Director Beth Angerman.
“If agencies can’t do these things well, they will have challenges meeting missions – building the nation’s infrastructure, protecting public health, and ensuring our security, as just a few examples,” Angerman added.
USSM partnered with federal payroll providers assigned by the Office of Personnel Management to seek industry information on platforms that could aid the government’s payroll delivery.
USSM developed the Modernization and Migration Management Framework to assist government agencies in their efforts to migrate and modernize financial management, human resources and acquisition functions.
USSM also capped off the inaugural year of its ProviderStat performance framework for shared service providers that works to help executives review data, assess performance, discuss progress and determine corrective action, GSA said.
Data from ProviderStat will help establish the first government-wide shared services catalog, GSA noted.
USSM was formed within GSA’s Office of Government-wide Policy to oversee shared services delivery across the government.
