Joint Staff Comptroller to Speak at E-Signature Summit for Government

Jeannine Mulliner, August 20, 2015

Many people don’t realize it, but government is the original early adopter of e-signature technology. In fact, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) at the Pentagon have been paving the way for e-signatures in government for nearly 20 years.

Within JCS, one of the departments using e-signatures is the Joint Staff Comptroller’s Office. The Comptroller’s Office manages Joint Staff financial resources, as well as financial resources provided by other agencies for Joint Staff use. In the Comptroller’s Office, authorized officials use e-signatures for project accounting and general ledger functions, releases of funds, expense authorizations, and contracts actions amounting to over $300 million per year.

As a result of going digital, the JCS has achieved significant cost savings annually in paper, shipping, archiving, labor and other related expenditures – while better protecting critical information assets, more efficiently processing decisions, improving auditability and streamlining workflows.
