Mission

The Statewide Financial System (SFS) is responsible for managing the enterprise financial system that supports the business of New York State government. This is accomplished by providing consistent and reliable enterprise services, ensuring the integrity of State financial data, partnering with agencies to meet business needs through an integrated financial platform, and leveraging business knowledge and system expertise.

Organization and Staffing

SFS is overseen by a Joint Governance Board, comprised of appointees from the Division of Budget and Office of State Comptroller. This board works closely with the SFS Director and other members of the leadership team to provide strategic direction and decision-making for the agency. The remainder of the SFS staff is primarily composed of information technology specialists and business analysts.

Budget Highlights

The FY 2020 Executive Budget recommends a General Fund appropriation of $30.5 million to support the ongoing maintenance and operating costs for the system. The Executive Budget also recommends a workforce of 142 FTEs to support the operational needs of the agency, which is flat from FY 2019.

Program Highlights

SFS continues to enhance system functionality to align New York State with industry best-practices and optimize the use of Enterprise Resource Planning software by State agencies. SFS is continuing to expand the use of the system by on-boarding additional agencies, providing financial and budgeting improvements, and enhancing agency procurement and payment functions.
