Andersen Cuts Red Tape With Alliance

Who enjoys red tape and long delays? No one, and that's why Arthur Andersen has formed an alliance with govWorks, Inc., an Internet portal.

The alliance is intended to reduce the amount of delays in processing business-to-government transactions. According to sources, the site will process many of the items currently done in the snail-mail environment, bringing speed to the process.

This includes tax payments, environmental impact and other regulatory filings, permitting and sales of products, and services across multiple jurisdictions.

Within the alliance, Andersen will offer govWorks' customers the ability to tap into the firm's shared services center, which means that agencies and other government entities can benefit from consulting services offered by the Big 5 firm.
