FACS Electronic Data Sharing

Submitted by: Central Office

Innovation Description and Benefit:

Financial Services is responsible for the department’s federal revenue of approximately $1 billion. This includes managing program balances and obligating funds. The Federal Aid Computer System (FACS) is used to manage and obligate federal funds from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Financial Services manually entered the same data into FACS and FHWA’s Fiscal Management Information System (FMIS) for approximately 3,500 obligations each year, resulting in a duplication of effort and increased risk of error. Financial Services and Information Systems upgraded FACS to allow electronic data sharing (EDS) to FMIS, eliminating the need for duplication of effort and reducing the risk of error. The upgrade included reevaluating the data in FACS to add/remove/modify necessary fields.
