D8-D9 Roadmap
 

The FBMS project includes all bureaus under the Secretary of the Interior's jurisdiction. FBMS will be phased in by functionality and by bureau through annual deployments.  See below for our recent deployment history.

In Deployment 5, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maintained the momentum of Core Financials, Acquisitions and Financial Assistance, Personal Property and Fleet Management, E-Gov Travel and FedConnect for eCommerce, which had already been deployed to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Office of Surface Mining (OSM), the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE). In addition, the functionality available to the above mentioned bureaus was expanded to include Real Property functionality.

Deployment 6 (D6), added the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and DOI's 60 Departmental Offices (DO) to the FBMS family.  FBMS went live at FWS on November 10, 2011, and at DO on November 16, 2011. With the completion of this deployment, the number of FBMS users nearly doubled to 8,300.  This  deployment also included a number of functionality upgrades that were deployed to USGS, BLM, OSM, BOEM, and BSEE on October 17, 2011.  

Deployment 7 went live during the week of November 5, 2012.  The newly deployed bureaus are the National Park Service (NPS) and the Bureau of Indian Affaris (IA), including the Bureau of Indian Education (IE).  This deployment is the largest to date and will effectively double the size of the FBMS user base again, to more than 16,000.

Deployment 8 is the final major deployment of FBMS.  D8 will add the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR), and is ongoing. This deployment includes a new Financial Consolidation and Reporting module and significant new Property Management functionality to IA, NPS, DO, FWS, USGS, BLM, OSM, BOEM, and BSEE.  Deployment 8 is scheduled to go live on November  7, 2013.
