PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The Technology Services (Tech Services) section of the Federal Reserve Board (the Board) is seeking consulting expertise with establishing a comprehensive data management strategy before December 31, 2019. 

The consultant will develop a data governance strategic plan that will leverage data to drive growth in business opportunities, improve customer experiences, and integrate business processes using technology throughout the data lifecycle.

Initially, the data governance consultant will provide a strategic plan and roadmap of integrating the Board’s administrative applications data, beginning with the on-premise enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications, Oracle EBS and PeopleSoft HCM, migration to the cloud. This strategy should reference a high-level plan that will provide an integration plan that will support all of Tech Service’s Application Portfolio; across various platforms.

The strategic plan should incorporate the importance of data management capabilities and stewardship. The roadmap should reflect the requirements to achieve data usability, availability, discoverability, and collaboration throughout the enterprise; how trusted information is critical to all business processes and decision making. The roadmap should navigate the plan into action by providing activities required to use data as a strategic business asset, offering new business opportunities and technology with efficiency and effectiveness. Achieving maximum value of quality data will be measured by the ability to make faster and better business decisions within MGT and DFM using digital technology, while reducing risks.

The objective is to provide recommendations for the people, processes, and technology. The recommendations should deliver a centralized data management strategy and data governance framework of key data elements for the Management Division (MGT) and Division of Financial Management (DFM).

Determining how we support our enterprise information strategy via data transformation, data quality, and data governance is the expected outcome.
