Office of the Deputy Chief Financial Officer (ODCFO)

Transforming DoD's Financial Future  


Our Vision: To transform DoD business operations, enabling production of the best possible financial information, guidance, and leadership—at the best value—for the Warfighter and taxpayer.

Our Mission: The mission of the Office of the Deputy Chief Financial Officer is to ensure DoD leaders have access to high quality and timely information for decision-making through a business framework that simplifies processes, standardizes systems and data, and promotes financial policies and internal controls. This framework supports effective and efficient financial management operations while also fostering a culture that embraces the changes necessary to achieve and sustain unmodified (or clean) audit opinions across the DoD enterprise.

The ODCFO provides guidance to the Fourth Estate, in concert with the Office of the Deputy Chief Management Officer, to enable an audit infrastructure capable of achieving unmodified audit opinions. Our mission execution embraces the DoD core values of leadership, professionalism, and technical knowledge through dedication to duty, integrity, ethics, honor, courage and loyalty.
