FMP-4 is a special project office within the DASN(Financial Policy and Systems) organization established to manage the orderly transition to SABRS as the Core Financial System and General Ledger for the Navy Budget Submitting Offices that currently use STARS-FL. The project was initiated on 28 May 2015 when Dr. Rabern signed the DON Service Provider Rationalization memo addressed to the affected BSOs. The migration to SABRS is designed to enable and sustain financial business process standardization and auditability.
The STARS-to-SABRS (S2S) Project focuses on change management efforts to wrap Navy business processes around the PR Builder/SABRS/SMARTs suite of applications. The project objective is not to significantly change the USMC systems to accommodate Navy business practices, as SABRS has been proved as an audit ready core financial system. Instead the office is working with BSOs to change Navy financial management operations to work in the SABRS environment in a way that makes Navy business auditable going forward. By changing Navy processes rather than changing SABRS (and all of the existing partner systems), the technical side and change management of the effort can be managed by a small program office temporarily augmented by contractor support..
