In August 2011, GSA implemented the first phase of a three-phase migration of its billing and accounts receivable functions from our custom legacy systems to a more modern financial management system. The first-phase implementation launched the billing, accounts receivable, and collection functions for motor vehicles leased through the GSA Federal Acquisition Service (GSA Fleet) and rent bills for tenants of space provided by the GSA Public Buildings Service (PBS Rent). Customers of the remaining GSA business lines will be impacted as subsequent phases of GSA’s modernization are implemented. This modernization effort supports:
- Streamlining and reducing the cost of federal financial management through standardization and online access,
- GSA’s efforts to achieve a “Zero Environmental Footprint” by reducing the use of printed paper and production of waste, and
- Better customer service by providing a single online source to view accounts receivable and collections data.
