BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON, FEDERAL LEADERS, AND UNIVERSITY PARTNERS TAKE ON CHALLENGE OF DATA-DRIVEN TRANSFORMATION OF GOVERNMENT SERVICES FOR INCREASED EFFECTIVENESS AND EFFICIENCY
McLean, VA — Increased effectiveness, efficiency and collaboration within federal agencies – all at a low cost. This ideal is possible for federal agencies and organizations through Shared Services and the use of Digital Strategies. The transformational potential for Shared Services and fulfillment of the President’s Management Agenda, especially as it involves the DATA Act, were the driving force behind the development of a comprehensive Action Plan detailed in the final report from the 2015 Federal Leadership Summit.
Shared Services merges supportive business operations (finance, facilities, information technology, procurement, human services, etc.) from several organizations, and delivers them in a centralized manner to eliminate redundancy and enable client businesses to focus limited resources on mission-critical services.
Developed by Leadership for a Networked World, convened by the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard and in collaboration with industry partner Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH), the Federal Leadership Summit brought together more than 35 federal, state and local officials, academics and Booz Allen leaders to formulate a strategy for implementing Shared Services and Digital Strategies across the federal government.
“Our goal was to bring together leaders in Shared Services from across government, industry and academia,” said Kathryn Kienast, a principal at Booz Allen Hamilton. “The Action Plan is the result of in-depth discussions to identify best practices for effectively harnessing the power of Shared Services to transform the delivery of government services in today’s data-driven world.”
The Action Plan contains detailed recommendations for federal agencies, including:
The Digital Strategies presented in the report include solutions enabled by data, networks and analytics. They create value by opening up new operational models within and across government organizations (e.g. shared services, e-procurement, and service co-production), and by enabling more efficient and effective methods for delivering services (such as regulatory enforcement, health and social services, and tax collection) to constituents.
Antonio Oftelie, Executive Director of Leadership for a Networked World, commented that “responding to new business models is key for leaders in government. When we transform government capacity, we renew our ability to achieve outcomes, public value and the legitimacy of our institutions.”
The Summit’s final report also contains multiple case studies that were presented during the conference highlighting innovative examples of Shared Services and Digital Strategies implementation at the federal, state and local level. Additionally, the report contains detailed recommendations for building a larger Shared Services community across the federal ecosystem to continue the progress of the inaugural Summit.
