THE INTERACTIVE COMPTROLLER WORKBENCH (ICW)

The Interactive Comptroller (IC) Workbench is comprised of Ironclad’s powerful suite of web-based financial tools. The IC Workbench allows our customers to access the custom applications they need via one easy-to-use portal. The IC Workbench houses several applications, including:

Budget Builder is used to calculate, research, and forecast civilian personnel costs across the Department of Defense (DoD). This powerful application brings standardization, accuracy, and efficiency to DoD organizations by utilizing built-in pay and benefit rates and automating common tasks. Budget Builder is currently used by:

  • Office of the Secretary of Defense

  • Navy

  • Air Force

  • Marine Corps

  • Air and Army National Guard

  • Other DoD components

teleSCOPE is the core module of the IC Workbench suite. Ironclad designed teleSCOPE to gather and display our customers’ financial data in an intuitive and actionable way. This powerful financial tool provides our customers with access to their data through customized dashboards, detailed reporting, unique views and analysis, and much more. teleSCOPE integrates all of your financial data from numerous disparate sources, offering our users one easy-to-use platform that includes up-to-date information.

CSTAR -  Continuous and Streamlined Tri-Annual Review

As an internal control practice, the Department of Defense performs tri-annual reviews of their financial commitments and obligations. Without the proper tools, this manual review process can be cumbersome and prone to error. Our customers needed a solution that allowed them to automate their review processes, increase reporting capabilities, and remain compliant with DoD practices.

Ironclad developed CSTAR, a secure application that allows our customers to proactively manage their outstanding obligations throughout the fiscal year. CSTAR joins data from multiple disparate sources and is continuously updated to provide our customers with the accurate financial data that they need.

Features of CSTAR include:

  • Users within CSTAR can drill down and create custom worklists based on user-defined parameters. These worklists are used to review and validate obligations.

  • Our application can quickly suggest and pre-populate validity fields based on pre-defined logic and patterns, saving time for our customers.

  • CSTAR allows multiple users to work within the system and tracks their workloads. By seeing what data is already being reviewed and validated in real-time, users can avoid duplicating efforts and can gauge outstanding workloads.

  • CSTAR also helps our customers identify and restore their buying power. As CSTAR provides real time data, our users can closely monitor their obligations throughout the year in real time.

CSTAR is an Ironclad solution that is available directly through any web browser. CSTAR is a secure application and our users have access to a specialized team of analysts through our dedicated service desk.

SOLAR - Segmented Obligation Listings for Audit Readiness

SOLAR is the Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR) focused module of our IC Workbench Suite. Although SOLAR is similar to CSTAR, SOLAR focuses solely on ensuring compliance with FIAR, a prominent DoD-wide directive.

  • SOLAR retains sample lists and allows users to upload supporting documentation, ensuring that the research and documentation for any given sample is accessible and organized.
