Agency financial systems still deficient (or why the books are still hosed)

My former colleague Jason Miller reports:

  1. 21 of 26 agencies responding reported the widespread use of manual processes in reporting systems.
  2. The Department of the Interior uses manual processes in almost every step of its financial reporting.
  3. The Department of Veterans Affairs has established an office, known as the Data Quality Service DQS, tasked with manually transferring information among various IT systems.
