Here, the "too many chiefs and not enough Indians" idiom just doesn't apply. The US Chief Financial Officers Council is an organization of CFOs and deputy CFOs from about two dozen federal agencies, as well as senior officials from the Office of Budget and Management and the Department of the Treasury. The group's goal is to improve financial management of the US government. Its priorities include improving financial management systems; securing clean opinions on audited financial statements; developing a quality workforce; improving loan management, and tax and debt collection; and designing management systems that emphasize accountability. The council was established in 1990.
