The Export-Import Bank of the United States has recently migrated from several different HR systems into IBC’s integrated Federal Personnel and Payroll System. The FPPS migration allowed the Export-Import Bank to gain efficiencies and streamline HR processes, moving from a document-centric to a data-centric management approach.
The Interior Business Center is the only federal shared services provider involved in civilian housing management. Our Quarters Program is used by the National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and U.S. Geological Survey. We help bureaus set rental rates, manage their housing inventory and tenant information, and produce tenant leasing documents, rent payment forms, and housing reports. Since the early 1980s, the Department of the Interior and other agencies have used the Quarters program to comply with federal rent-setting regulations. Recently, the Quarters Program launched its Internet Quarters Management Information System – a complex system used to manage more than 18,000 government furnished housing units for federal employees of the Department of the Interior and 13 other federal agencies.
In 2014, the Interior Business Center completed 1,202 negotiated agreements with non-profit organizations, Indian tribal, insular, state and local governments. These efforts translated in potential monetary benefit to the government of $24M, and ensured that indirect costs paid are legally sound, fair, and equitable.We negotiate with organizations that receive the majority of their federal funding from the Department of the Interior or are designated by the Office of Management and Budget to negotiate with DOI – such as insular areas and federally recognized tribal governments.
