Background and Description

The Department of Education’s (the Department) Office of Finance and Operations (OFO) utilizes Fiserv’s Windows based reconciliations software application known as Frontier. OFO has used the Frontier application (formerly Check Free) along with several upgrades since 1999. Frontier provides an enterprise-wide reconciliation framework that includes reconciling the Department's most significant non-credit reform accounts and Fund Balances with Treasury. The Frontier application is a critical part of the Department’s financial management operations and is essential for meeting multiple statutory and regulatory requirements, including the CFO Act; the Manager’s Financial Integrity Act; and the annual audit of the Department’s financial statements. To continue using the software, it is necessary to renew the subscription and support for the product.
