Abstract:

The overall purpose of FFMIA is to ensure that agency financial management systems provide timely, uniform, reliable, and thus more useful financial information. With such information, government leaders will be better positioned to invest scarce resources, reduce costs, oversee programs, and hold agency managers accountable for the way they run government programs. Compliance with federal financial management systems requirements, applicable accounting standards, and the SGL are all necessary to help achieve these goals.
