A system for tracking agencies' relocation expenses is up and running at a government business center.
The Administrative Resource Center at the Treasury Department's Bureau of the Public Debt operates a Web-based system that automates expense management processes. The center provides relocation services to 19 agencies.
"Our goal is to provide a one-stop relocation service for smaller federal agencies and their employees," said Roger Burris, a relocation specialist at the center in Parkersburg, W.Va. "You can extract the [relocation information] any way you want or the way [the Office of Management and Budget] wants it to be extracted."
Currently, the center processes about 500 relocations each year, but Burris expects that number to increase. "We have nowhere to go but up," Burris said. "Our growth potential is very good."
