The United States Department of the Navy is committed to fiscal accountability through the institution of efficient, sustainable business processes that promote effective financial management. Accenture supported the Department of the Navy Assistant Secretary of the Navy Financial Management and Comptroller Office of Financial Operations (ASN FM&C FMO) to perform business process transformation and risk mitigation activities to support this goal in an environment of evolving accounting and management information systems.
Accenture recognized the need to document, standardize and communicate business processes in a consistent yet adaptable manner to engage a variety of Commands and organizations, while considering the importance of reaching target dates.
The standard process documentation delivered by Accenture provides the Navy with tools for financial transparency throughout the organization. The detailed process documentation, internal controls identification and adherence metrics are currently in use to train Command stakeholders.
These items promote consistency across the Navy in executing financial events that comply with relevant regulation and policies. Additionally, the documentation can be used to explain Navy processes to external auditors, reducing the total cost of audit.
