Update to the Financial Management Capability Framework
The FM QSMO updated the Financial Management Capability Framework. FMCF 2.0 aligns with recently approved changes to the Federal Financial Management Standards that are part of the Federal Integrated Business Framework (FIBF). FMCF 2.0 includes feedback from the Travel Line of Business, as well as updates from other stakeholders.
The FMCF is the standards and capabilities that define baseline needs for solutions and services in the FM QSMO Marketplace, including cloud-based core financial systems (Core FS). The FM QSMO developed the FMCF by using policy and standards as a foundation and then engaged with numerous stakeholders to understand their needs, requirements, capabilities, and pain points.
You can view a summary of the changes, including detailed information about each FMCF component by visiting the FM QSMO Financial Management Capability Framework (FMCF) web page.
