Federal 100: Jolene Lauria-Sullens

Jolene Lauria Sullens

Name: Jolene Lauria-Sullens
Title: Deputy Assistant Attorney General and Controller
Agency: Justice Department

A force for financial integration. As the top financial manager at the Justice Department, Lauria-Sullens played a leading role in implementing a single, integrated financial system across the department's components. The new Unified Financial Management System takes over accounting and other functions for the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration and other big-name Justice agencies. 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.
