ALL IN THE FAMILY
The National Business Center is pleased to welcome two new members to our expanding family of valued customers and announce the expansion of service to one of our existing customers.


One of our new customers is the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), a new government corporation, which will provide U.S. foreign development assistance to countries that adopt pro-growth strategies for meeting political, social and economic challenges. The challenges of building a new government corporation were minimized by coming to the NBC for cross-servicing of administrative systems. The NBC began providing human resource services in February to help MCC bring on staff. FPPS/ePayroll Services were implemented in March, as were Oracle Federal Financial Services in April. In addition NBC currently provides accounting operations support, IT services, and systems support to the MCC. It has been an exciting time for both the MCC and NBC. Here is a picture from a NBC site visit by the MCC.

Another of our new customers is the Public Defender Service of the District of Columbia (PDS). PDS is a federally funded, independent agency of the District of Columbia. Its mission is to provide quality, zealous legal representation to the indigent people facing a loss of liberty in the District of Columbia. In May of this year the PDS signed an interagency agreement with the NBC, which specifies that the NBC will provide implementation and support services for Oracle Federal Financials. The PDS will take advantage of NBC’s Oracle Shared Service Arrangement, which has been developed to meet the needs of small agencies with limited staff and budget. In addition to support for this core financial management COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) application, the NBC will also be providing Accounting Operations Services. The interagency agreement also allows the NBC to provide supplemental on-demand Acquisition Services when requested by PDS.


The NBC is also pleased to announce an expansion of services provided to the African Development Foundation (ADF). ADF is a government corporation, which provides small grants directly to private organizations in Africa to carry out sustainable self-help development activities in an environmentally sound manner. ADF has also elected to take advantage of NBC’s Shared Service Arrangement of Oracle Federal Financials implementation and support. The interagency agreement, which specified an implementation start date of April 2004, also includes Accounting Operations Services. These new services augment the personnel, payroll and related services that the NBC has been providing to ADF over the past few years, and the temporary human resources operational support services that we have providing for the last few months.


The National Business Center extends a welcome and thank you to our new customers the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the Public Defender Service of the District of Columbia; and a gracious thank you to the African Development Foundation for allowing us to strengthen and expand our business relationship with an existing valued customer.
