Groups of state leaders and experts will continue to meet and guide the One Washington program. Because this program touches all corners of state government, it is important to have strong leadership and stakeholder engagement. Good governance supports this work and is a critical component of its success.

  • Statewide collection of critical data

  • Accuracy through consistent business processes and common systems
  • Transparency of data and information

  • Data conversion for insights for decision making
  • Lower risk of system failures
  • Standardized payee and customer data
  • Facilitation of budget planning
  • Account for results (new Chart of Accounts)
  • Reporting of the right information at the right time to the right people
