WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Department of the Treasury is automating and enhancing training initiatives delivered to nearly 10,000 financial management professionals employed by the federal government. The project covers employees in the Treasury's Financial Management Service (FMS) and Treasury Agency Services (TAS), and it eventually may extend to state and local financial agencies.

The Treasury Department is using the Thinq TrainingServer LMS to automate and streamline registration and tracking processes that previously were paper-based and labor intensive. The solution also allows the agency to increase e-learning capabilities and improve internal technology and data analysis.

"After analyzing our current training management processes we clearly saw the need for an LMS," said Dr. Imelda Idar, director of the TAS Professional Development Division. "Our goals are to improve training administration, increase efficiency and cut down on costs, while at the same time to provide federal employees with innovative e-learning opportunities and easy-to-use online payment options."

FMS provides centralized payment, collection and reporting services for the federal government, overseeing a daily cash flow of nearly $50 billion into and out of federal accounts.
