Standard Integrated Federal Financial/Procurement System

I have seen the effectiveness of the FPDS system. I feel strongly that the technology exists to allow the Federal Government to design an integrated financial system and have it built for the entire federal Government to use. We, the Federal Government, would own it and only have a contractor maintain the system, rather than each agency independently pursuing their own COTS products that do not necessarily fit the Federal requirements and are not standardized from one agency to the next. Each agency has probably spent enough to have had one Federal system designed and built that would work for all. See
