Fiscal Service Advisory Council Payments Forum
June 2-3, 2015
8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This forum will provide a unique opportunity for agencies to hear first-hand the current and planned issues related to federal government payment products, services, and initiatives.
Most importantly, agency representatives will be able to provide their thoughts, opinions, concerns and influence how those payment products/services are developed and carried out.
Council representation and participation is open to all federal agencies. To improve the council membership, we're asking that agency representatives be limited to a primary and alternate for each agency processing site responsible for processing and submitting payments to the Fiscal Service. Both the member and alternate may attend the council forum meetings.

Shared Services Workshop
The Office of Financial Innovation and Transformation (FIT) conducted a Shared Services Workshop on March 17, 2015.
This workshop brought together industry experts in shared services to assist in identifying next steps for Federal financial management shared services based upon recent studies conducted by several industry associations.
The associations who conducted the studies are the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council, the Partnership for Public Service, and the Association of Government Accountants.
This was not a procurement 'industry day' to talk about specific procurements. Instead, the event provided a venue to discuss the studies and gather stakeholder input.

Treasury Hosts Data Transparency Town Hall to Kick-Off DATA Act Implementation
With the recent enactment of the "Digital Accountability Transparency Act" (DATA Act) (Pub. L. 113-101), Treasury hosted a Data Transparency Town Hall on September 26, 2014 to kick off the government-wide implementation of the federal financial transparency legislation.
Senior officials from the White House, Treasury, and all major federal agencies and non-federal stakeholders participated in the one-day town hall meeting devoted to learning about DATA Act implementation, hearing from members of the public about the importance of federal spending transparency, and learning from experts on what is possible from a technical perspective.
This town hall is part of Treasury and the Office of Management and Budget's efforts to foster a two way communication and collaboration with federal and non-federal stakeholders. See the agenda and view the presentations that were given during the event and comments and presentations that were submitted but not presented during the event.
