Shared services is a concept with staying power.
For nearly two decades, the federal government has recognized the value of streamlining and sharing common mission support services as a means of saving taxpayer dollars and to focus more resources on strategic priorities.
Today, the case for shared services is more compelling than ever thanks to work done across government and industry. Cloud, virtualization, and related technologies have provided agencies with an unprecedented ability to manage the underlying infrastructure and to extend services wherever they are needed. The result has been increased interest in shared services, especially as agencies face the prospect of updating or replacing their own aging legacy systems for providing services even with limited resources.
The incoming administration has the opportunity to build on that foundation and create new momentum for shared services—not only as a way to improve the efficiency of operations but also to deliver a higher caliber of services.
