Abstract : Part of our DFAS goal is to improve the quality of service to our customers while we consolidate finance and accounting functions. Our approach is to delve into virtually every area of financial management, improve it, and pass any savings on to the customers. As a result of an eight-month project I recently completed, I have a recommendation that is in line with the DFAS strategy, goals, and objectives. It is also in line with the DFAS plan for providing accounting support for Defense Organizations. My idea is to eliminate Defense Agency Accounting Offices from the reporting chain and to implement direct reporting for Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) funds to the DFAS Indianapolis Center, which currently performs the departmental reporting function.
