Financial Management Modernization Initiative (FMMI) is one way that USDA will modernize its financial systems and improve overall financial management performance. It will provide online, real-time transaction capabilities and will replace FFIS. FMMI will allow AMS, APHIS, and GIPSA to be more financially accountable, transparent, and efficient in our spending.
FMMI will integrate a majority of the financial capabilities of the USDA. This integration allows for a single data entry into the system – significantly decreasing the number of manual reconciliations currently being performed throughout USDA. Integration also improves planning, programming, budgeting and execution through the use of integrated output data from financial and non-financial sources.
AMS, APHIS and GIPSA are part of FMMI Deployment 2, which means each Agency will transition to this system in the Spring of 2011. There is much work to be done in advance, so keep checking this web site for updated information and answers to your questions.
