Fiscal Service Reimagines Federal Financial Management Guidance
October 1, 2020
The Bureau of the Fiscal Service is making it easier for the financial workforce to access financial management guidance, policies and instructions with the launch of a new website, the Treasury Financial Experience (TFX): Your one-stop shop for Federal Financial Management information. The TFX, designed with the user in mind, will provide users with a better online experience, including a robust search feature and consolidated resources combining the Treasury Financial Manual and other financial management guidance into this new platform.
The TFX is one of several Fiscal Service initiatives aimed at improving the customer experience with the Bureau’s products and services. The TFX is the result of a year-long development effort that included gathering feedback from financial managers across the Government on how to improve the presentation and usability of guidance. "The Fiscal Service is coupling Human Centered Design with on-going customer agency feedback to build a better, more efficient way for agencies to find the information they need. This will help enable agencies to focus more time on their core missions," said Tim Gribben, Commissioner of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service.
The TFX provides a customer-centric experience for navigating and searching for financial management guidance. It offers robust search capabilities with a modern design that scales according to the user’s device. "We heard from customers that they simply couldn’t locate information easily. Both finding the right source and finding the right information in that source were problems," said FIT Transformation Manager Marshall Henry. "With the TFX, search results will return the information you need and show you relevant sources and related guidance."
The initial launch is a beta version focused on disbursing guidance. In the upcoming year, future releases will include guidance in areas such as collections and financial reporting. This project is led by the Bureau’s Office of Financial Innovation and Transformation (FIT).
