Business Issue

A public sector entity embarked on a transformation initiative to expand the organization’s capacity to manage its financial operations professionally and independently. The client embarked on an organization-wide effort to optimize the deployment of people, processes, and technology. The client sought to realign its financial services from numerous silo functions into three cohesive units: Finance, Treasury, and Procurement. Concurrent with this realignment, the client wanted to achieve “clean-up” of accounting and internal controls; address the knowledge gap to support an independent finance function; develop and/or modernize its business practices, policies, and processes; and expand the use of current technology to prepare the organization for the future.

Solution

Jefferson Wells provided a team of business process design professionals with the hands-on experience to work side-by-side with the client’s personnel to transform the organization in Accounting and Financial Reporting, Procurement, Risk Management, Treasury, and Billing System Redesign & Audit. Jefferson Wells defined and established sustainable business processes and additionally fulfilled multiple permanent roles throughout the client’s Finance organization.
