Interior Business Center Shared Services
The Interior Business Center is a federal shared services provider that offers business solutions to create efficiencies and economies of scale for the Department of the Interior as well as other federal agencies. Having earned the distinction of becoming one of the few Office of Management and Budget designated shared service providers in the federal government, IBC is committed to providing leading edge efficient and cost-effective business services to our customers.
Utilizing a shared services provider allows an organization focus solely on their core mission while delegating administrative functions to a separate entity.
At the Interior Business Center, we capitalize on the economy of skill provided by a dedicated workforce of professionals spanning three main lines of business to provide your organization with accurate, courteous and timely service. Coupled with the economy of scale gained by providing expert services to several federal agencies, IBC allows you to maximize cost efficiency and staff utilization.
We use the interagency agreement vehicle, which simplifies the procurement processes for most federal agencies. Our main statutory authority for providing cross agency support is through the Department of the Interior's working capital fund, which was established pursuant to 43 USC 1467 (amended). Acquisition services are also provided through the Interior Franchise Fund pursuant to Pub. L. No. 104-208, div. A, tit. I, § 101(d).
