Abstract:

The United States Army accounting systems are the backbone of the Armys formal financial management system. They have evolved from manual systems to current automated processes increasing in scope and complexity along the way. The current Standard Finance System STANFINS is the Armys most widely used installation accounting system. This thesis briefly traces its evolution and examines its current processes in order to determine how well STANFINS is supporting resource management with respect to both a fiduciary and managerial role. Additionally, this study determines STANFINSs future involvement in the Armys efforts to improve financial management.
