Financial/Budget Services

S Starry’s proven track record in partnering with federal agencies sets a new standard for financial management excellence. We help federal agencies achieve organization-wide accountability, including clean audit opinions, compliance with open government, and transparency initiatives (e.g., DATA Act). We enable efficient financial operations from budget formulation through general ledger management, budget execution, program management, procurement, and performance management. We actively refresh financial system technologies for our federal clients, including implementation of shared services and cloud migration to stay current on evolving requirements for financial operations and new system platforms and standards.
