The FDIC and USDA Rural Development are innovating in government.
USDA-RD and FDIC utilize interagency collaboration to modernize congressional interactions.
Together, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Rural Development (USDA-RD)has set the example for inter-agency collaboration. At a time when many government agencies are trying to do more with less, the FDIC and the USDA Rural Development teams have identified similarities in their business operations and congressional interactions, which facilitated a partnership to share strategies and drive technological innovation.
The FDIC launched the Congressional Analysis Unified Correspondence Utility System, or CAUCUS, on the FedRAMP-authorized Salesforce Customer 360 Platform for Public Sector. It is a low-code / no-code, data call and business automation platform that gives the team a comprehensive view of interactions with members of Congress. Thus providing the FDIC leadership real-time, actionable visibility of the concerns and interests of Congress in federal financial regulatory activities.
