Innovative Training Program Helps Fort Drum FM Unit Better Prepare for Contingency Operations
Arlington, VA, October 21, 2013 — Binary Group, a leading woman-owned small business government contractor, was awarded a contract to provide their innovative and interactive FM training courses to the 33rd Financial Management Support Unit (FMSU) at Fort Drum, NY. The training program focused on finance operations, and included commercial vendor services (CVS) and disbursing operations in a deployed environment using both manual and automated (GFEBS) process in accounts payable operations, Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) and the Deployable Disbursing System (DDS). The training was tailored specifically around their training objectives and will contribute to their preparation for upcoming individual and unit deployments.
The training was conducted at Fort Drum in September, receiving rave reviews from the soldiers. Many stated the training “was the best they had received in their military career.” Students gained a strong working knowledge of the critical FM skills associated with CVS and disbursing and how to apply them in performing their FM mission in legacy systems or GFEBS, the Army’s ERP system, as they relate to the financial management operations support mission.
“We were excited to have a mobile training team from Binary at our installation that has such in-depth knowledge of the Army’s financial operations requirements and FM systems, said Sergeant Major Cosby, the FM leader at the 33. “Binary’s course content, training simulations and practical exercises are the most comprehensive program I’ve seen. I’m confident Binary’s highly skilled trainers will greatly enhance our FM team’s proficiencies, improving their confidence to effectively support the mission.”
Binary provides learner-centric and transformative training covers the full spectrum of financial management functional and technical skills required by the Army, DoD, and every other government agency, including financial operations, resource management, audit readiness, planning & budgeting, and ERP, logistics and other financial management systems.
“Binary’s demonstrated FM training programs ensured Fort Drum’s FM soldiers can effectively perform their mission quickly and minimize errors,” stated Troy Clay, VP of Binary’s Financial Management Practice. “In this fiscally constrained environment, Binary continues to provide cost-effective training packages that support the sustainment of very perishable skills,” continued Mr. Clay. “By improving the proficiency of FM personnel, Binary helps organizations transform their FM operations to a cost managed enterprise, while maintaining mission readiness.”
