The Fiscal Accountability Community of Change (Fiscal Accountability CoC) is established by the Senior Executives Association (SEA) and is led by SEA members. The Fiscal Accountability CoC, within the limits of this Charter, and under the supervision of the SEA Board of Directors, works collaboratively with SEA members and key stakeholders to develop programs and policies that improve the overall effectiveness of senior executives and other leaders within the Federal government.
The Fiscal Accountability CoC is designed to be a secure platform from which SEA members and key stakeholders are able to effectively collaborate. The overall goal is to create an environment where SEA members and stakeholders are confident that their opinions are valued and will be included as part of the overall SEA Strategic Plan.

None of the reports, studies or other work products of the CoC are to be viewed as official SEA documents until approved by the SEA Board of Directors.
The CoC will work with the Enterprise Risk Management Community to develop an ERM Playbook for Senior Career Leaders that builds on the existing ERM Playbook; and, work with the Shared Services Community to advance shared services as an agency reform tool.
