Treasury seeks to automate invoice workflow process

Department of Treasury Business Opportunities: Workflow Solutions

The Treasury Department is researching the market for applications that will minimize paper flow and streamline the invoice routing and approval process as part of its accounting procedures.

Treasury’s Administrative Resource Center in the Bureau of the Public Debt is a shared-service provider offering administrative services to other agencies. Its accounts payable services require invoices to be routed and approved by certifying officials and various contacts at the customer agencies before being sent to the center’s accounts payable office.

Administrative processes are a major federal task. Software is available to make workflow, including the accounts payable business process, more efficient and timely.

For Treasury, workflow applications generally must integrate with Oracle Federal Financials, provide real-time monitoring of performance metrics on user activity and queue status and volume, and minimize hardware/software setup and configuration by the users, according to the recent sources sought posting on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site.

For routing and approval, the software needs to be able to support and customize business rules for workflow, forms through which to submit data, and e-mail notifications and reminders.

Responses are due May 4.
