Global Computer Enterprises (GCE) has announced that the U.S. Department of Labor has gone live with the firm’s new Shared Service Provider (SSP) solution. The program is cloud-computing based and will support financial management efforts.
The event marks the first implementation of a cabinet-level department onto a commercial SSP solution based on Oracle Financials Release 12. GCE needed just 18 months to deliver the comprehensive solution for thousands of employees and more than 22 agencies.
“In only 18 months our team delivered a comprehensive financial management solution – a victory that few in this industry can claim, ” said David Winslow, GCE’s Program Manager. “It took not only the dedication and knowledge of a team of GCE employees and industry partners, but also the commitment from the DOL project team and senior leadership to drive this implementation to success. This launch is a testament to the strength of the relationship of GCE with our team of partners and with our customer.”
The new solution is the agency’s first financial management solution overhaul in over 20 years, while DOL achieves its goal of modernizing its core financial management functions within the framework of a FSIO-compliant financial management Shared Service Provider (SSP). According to GCE: “DOL expects to drive major operational efficiencies, on-going compliance with OMB and Treasury guidelines, and greater insight and reporting of spending. And, because the solution is cloud based, DOL had to make no hardware or software investments.”
“The era of wasting millions of dollars building financial management solutions from scratch that don’t work in the government is over, ” said Ray Muslimani, GCE CEO. “As the new administration pushes for accountability and utilizing technology to drive operational efficiencies, GCE’s ability to deliver a cloud-based, agency-wide solution is a testament to a new model in delivering enterprise-class solutions into the government.”
