About

Fiscal Service provides numerous services to over 250 federal agencies, enabling federal agencies to focus on their core mission. Of these services, money movement, financial data, and effective customer service face a growing number of changes as the financial ecosystem adapts to the increasingly digital world.

In order to continue to sustain the track record of excellence and efficiency, Fiscal Service is starting to explore how the digital payments ecosystem and transforming landscape can impact us.

The Future of Payments and Collections forum brings together thought-leaders and decision-makers across government, industry, and academia to provide an in-depth look at the payment innovations and cross- industry challenges that are transforming the payments landscape. This event is a forum for a breadth of conversations with deep dives into the range of subjects central to the evolving world of payments. This forum will provide practical, actionable guidance that can be used strategically to advance the future of payments and collections at Fiscal Service.

  • Digital payments and the growing contactless revolution
  • The balance between regulation and innovation
  • Combating fraud and validating identity through digital means
