The SSLC-NAPA-SEA Forum Series for 2021

Now entering its third year, SSLC’s Forum series, presented in collaboration with the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) and the Senior Executives Association (SEA), is off to an exciting start in 2021.  Our original Shared Services Forum for Agency Implementation Leaders is a monthly workshop in which government executives who are leading shared services initiatives in their agencies bring their toughest challenges to the table for real-time collaborative problem-solving with their counterparts in other agencies and SSLC, NAPA and SEA leaders.  Over 100 executives from over 20 agencies have participated to date along with leaders from the four Quality Service Management Offices (QSMOs) charged to create future marketplaces for Financial Management, Human Resources, Grants and Cyber Security shared services.  Government executives who participate regularly have become the Forum’s strongest proponents and have testified to receiving high value insights and practical implementation support from their participation.  SSLC, NAPA and SEA believe the Forum represents a breakthrough in effective problem-solving and can become a model for advancing government modernization efforts.

Our new Future of Work Forum, also co-sponsored with NAPA and SEA, is exploring how emerging technologies and telework are transforming the nature of work and how government policies and cultures need to change to continue to leverage workplace innovations in the future post-COVID-19 environment.     

SSLC, NAPA and SEA are planning to launch additional Forums to support government modernization initiatives in the months ahead.  More information will be posted here when available.   

Forums are open to all interested government executives and industry shared services solution providers.  Dates of upcoming Forums are posted here: Upcoming Events. For more information about participating, please contact us at: Info@SharedServicesNow.org

Shared Services – Now!

What are Shared Services? “Shared services” is a business model for delivery of common back office administrative services, e.g., human resources (HR), financial management (FM), purchasing, etc., and common mission-support services, e.g., geospatial services, in which customer organizations receive services from experienced third party providers with high capacity platforms who can serve multiple customers more costeffectively than individual customers can serve themselves.

How Shared Services enable workforce and IT modernization objectives. In addition to providing enormous direct benefits of improved service and lower cost, shared services are a force multiplier of indirect benefits towards many other government reform and modernization objectives. LEARN MORE>

Why is legislation necessary? Shared services implementation has been underway in the Federal Government for decades with support from Presidential Administrations of both parties. Progress has been excruciatingly slow and discontinuous across administrations. LEARN MORE>
