Title: Deputy Assistant Attorney General and Controller
Agency: Justice Department

A force for financial integration.

The off-the-shelf solution covers 28 business processes, eliminates redundancies, promotes visibility into departmentwide spending and provides real-time data to users. That's no small project -- and Lauria-Sullens was able to do it while maintaining a clean financial audit throughout the transition.
