General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS)

GFEBS develops, acquires, integrates, deploys and sustains enterprise-wide financial and procurement management capabilities to support Army’s current and future missions in an attempt to modernize and standardize the Army financial systems/processes.

GFEBS is the Army’s new web-enabled financial, asset and accounting management system that standardizes, streamlines and shares critical data across the Active Army, the ARNG and the USAR. GFEBS uses SAP software, a COTS ERP solution.

For decades, the Army has tried and failed to modernize and standardize financial systems and processes.

The General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS) is an exceptional first step. GFEBS is the centerpiece of the Army’s transformation of its financial management domain and critical to the DoD audit readiness mandate. The GFEBS solution is not an update of existing legacy systems but instead, a replacement of numerous and outdated legacy systems with a single, integrated solution for use across the Army and the Defense Financial and Accounting Service (DFAS). The GFEBS solution supports the Army in achieving the NDAA requirement for fully auditable financial statements by 2017 and the DoD requirement for an auditable Statement of Budgetary Resources (SBR) for General Funds by 2014.

Army Financial Management Optimization (AFMO)

The AFMO Task Force makes recommendations to the Secretary of the Army on multi-year transformational efforts focused on improving capabilities toward greater efficiency and achieving audit of our financial statements in 2017.

AFMO uses a framework for transformation, which considers the entire Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leader Development, Personnel and Facilities (DOTMLPF-P) construct.

The Assistant Secretary of the Army, Financial Management & Comptroller (ASA (FM&C) faced increasing congressional mandates for auditability and compliance requirements amid a post-war shrinking budget. These pressures resulted in the decision to deploy the General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS) intended to increase efficiencies and reduce cost by standardizing business operations while addressing NDAA and other compliance requirements.

Now that GFEBS has been deployed, the Army’s financial management community has turned their attention to streamlining their operations, organizations and service provider agreements to leverage the efficiencies enabled by the ERPs.

Enterprise Risk Assessment Methodology (ERAM)

ERAM is an initiative launched by the Business Transformation Agency (BTA) to help business Major Automated Information Systems deliver business capabilities rapidly, at a reduced cost, by identifying program vulnerabilities and providing mitigation solutions.

The DoD Business Transformation Agency’s (BTA) mission is to guide the transformation of business operations throughout DoD and to deliver Enterprise-level capabilities that align to war-fighter needs.

ERAM is an independent risk assessment that is conducted in support of program Milestone Decisions for Major Automated Information Systems (MAIS) and at the request of decision makers such as the Milestone Decision Authority (MDA), Program Executive Office, functional sponsor or program manager. The risk findings provide insight to Programs, Senior Leaders, and the Investment and Acquisition Decision Process. ERAM was developed by the Business Transformation Agency in response to the ongoing challenges encountered by the large information technology (IT) investments across the Department of Defense (DoD), and is now an official requirement for all MAIS programs before completion of each major milestone.
