About Defense Finance and Accounting Service (www.dfas.mil)
The Defense Finances Account System is the largest finance and accounting operation in the world. The DFAS is an agency of the United States Department of Defense which was started under the direction of Secretary of Defense. This agency was started back in 1991 with the mandate of providing financial and accounting services to the civil and military members of the defense department.
This is the agency that pays all the military and civilian personnel, annuitants, retirees and many more. The DFAS was started for two reasons; one to reduce the cost of Defense department finance and accounting operation and the other reason was to strengthen the financial management. In 2003, the agency was chosen to be among the four governmental entities to provide payroll services to the U.S government. The agency was selected by the Office of Personnel Management.
In 2005, the DFAS agency was reconstructed which led to many sites being integrated into major centers. This led to the close of many sites in other cities. The major sites are Indianapolis, which is the headquarters of the agency, Cleveland and Columbus in Ohio, Rome in New York, Limestone in Maine, Europe and Japan. The smaller sites are Alexandria in Virginia, Texarkana in Texas and Bratenahl in Ohio.
