DHS Financial Systems: Will Modernization Ever Be Achieved

September 26, 2017 2:00 PM | HOUSE CAPITOL VISITOR CENTER (HVC) ROOM 210

For over a decade, DHS has attempted to modernize its financial systems. In 2014, the Department began its third attempt to modernize financial systems by focusing on components with the most urgent need. DHS utilized a federal shared service provider to achieve cost savings. However, the Department has faced significant cost overruns and schedule delays with this approach and is now planning a new path forward. This hearing will examine the challenges with DHS’s latest attempt and its plan ahead with modernizing these systems.
