 Office of Financial Operations (FMO)


The Office of Financial Operations (FMO), under the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Financial Management and Comptroller, acts on behalf of the Department of the Navy (DON) and is responsible for financial and accounting matters. FMO leads financial programs and activities that are designed to improve the way the DON does business and support the warfighter.

As Department of Defense (DoD) directives and policies are set for financial efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency, FMO reports on financial data. FMO also develops and manages accounting and finance related programs to help Budget Submitting Offices (BSOs), Commands, and other Shared Service Providers (SSPs) comply with the DoD requirements and audit response.

FMO’s support enables BSOs within each Command, and other SSPs developed to provide credible and affordable solutions to the Warfighter, to comply with DoD financial requirements.

FMO is comprised of the following divisions:

FMO-1: Accounting and Finance Systems

Provides leadership to FMO in all areas of information and technology management in support of audit readiness and sustainment objectives. Also supports the strategic initiatives of FMO through policies that improve the efficiency and performance of financial IT systems and associated business processes.

FMO-2: Accounting and Financial Practices and Reporting

Responsible for producing the Annual Department of the Navy (DON) Financial Reports and for establishing governance over financial data management, policy and processes. Also ensures the accuracy of financial data.

FMO-3: Financial Services

FMO-5: Audit Response and Evaluation

FMO-C: Operations and Management

Supports FMO’s goal to enable a culture of collaboration, integration, innovation, and transformation across FMO Divisions to enable business success. FMO-C ensures an overarching alignment across Divisions by maintaining continuous communications, identifying areas for performance improvements, and by providing acquisition management, budgeting and resources, and analytical support to the DON.
