The federal government seeks ways to modernize the government-wide payroll

July 29, 2016

Information is sought on the solutions available to meet federal requirements

WASHINGTON -- Today the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) issued a Request for Information (RFI) to vendors for ways to modernize the delivery of federal payroll. Unified Shared Services Management (USSM), in partnership with Office of Personnel Management (OPM)-designated federal payroll providers, is seeking information from industry on solutions to enhance the government’s delivery of payroll.

In the early 2000s, the federal government launched the ePayroll initiative which successfully streamlined payroll processing government-wide. The issuance of this RFI is another step in continuously improving federal payroll. As with many government-wide solutions, the final approach may involve one or multiple technologies, delivery modalities, and providers. To view the RFI please visit FedBizOpps.

“USSM is proud of its role in issuing this RFI with the federal payroll shared service providers. This kind of collaboration across the government shows our ability to achieve economies of scale and reduce duplicative investments,” said Beth Angerman, Executive Director of USSM.
