It looks like jobs at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service office in Rome are safe for now.

Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand say the current Army Financial Optimization Pilot Program has ended, with no changes or job reductions planned for the immediate future at DFAS.

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi says DFAS has long had an extremely productive and efficient operation in Rome, and both Senators did an excellent job getting that message across to their colleagues on the Armed Services Committee.

Brindisi says the vital work being done at DFAS will continue uninterrupted and the very positive effect the facility has on the Mohawk Valley’s economy will continue.

“This is welcome news for the DFAS-Rome workforce,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.  “The termination of this pilot program without any designated changes means that the workforce at DFAS-Rome can rest easy. I will continue to work with the Army and my colleagues in Congress to ensure that future efforts to evaluate financial management structures within the Army do not unduly hurt DFAS.”
