Joint Financial Management Improvement Program (JFMIP).


Notice of document availability.


The JFMIP is seeking public comment on an exposure draft entitled “Property Management System Requirements,” dated September 2004. The draft is a revision to the first Federal Financial Management System Requirements (FFMSR) document to address property systems. The document is intended to assist agencies when developing, improving or evaluating property management systems. It provides the baseline functionality that agency systems must have to support agency missions and comply with laws and regulations. When issued in final, the document will augment the existing body of FFMSR's that define financial system functional requirements which are used in evaluating compliance with the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act (FFMIA) of 1996.


Comments are due by November 12, 2004.

The FFMIA of 1996 mandated that agencies implement and maintain systems that comply substantially with FFMSR, applicable Federal accounting standards, and the U.S. Government Standard General Ledger at the transaction level. The FFMIA statute codified the JFMIP financial system requirements documents as a key benchmark that agency systems must meet to substantially comply with systems requirements provisions under FFMIA. To support the provisions outlined in FFMIA, the JFMIP is updating obsolete requirements documents and publishing additional requirements documents. Comments received will be reviewed and the exposure draft will be revised as necessary. Publication of the final document will be mailed to agency financial officials, procurement executives, chief information officers, and others, and will be available on the JFMIP website.
