VA Picks USDA as Financial Mgmt Shared Service Provider

financial reportingThe Agriculture Department has been chosen to replace the Department of Veterans Affairs‘ current financial management platform as VA’s federal shared service provider.

VA said Tuesday the partnership with USDA reflects cross-agency efforts to increase financial transparency, mitigate duplication and redundancy and increase the quality and agility of administrative services in the government.

Edward Murray, VA interim assistant secretary for management and interim chief financial officer, said VA picked USDA after week-long workshops wherein subject matter experts across VA provided feedback on the selection process.

VA noted the decision was also influenced by best practices and lessons from the Office of Management and Budget, Government Accountability Office, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Housing and Urban Development and others.
