Welcome to the Service First – Working Together web site.

Graphic: Service First logo.

Service First is a partnership authority available to all agencies of the US Department of Agriculture and US Department of the Interior.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2012 made the Service First authority permanent. In fiscal year 2014, the Consolidated Appropriations Act extended the authority to all bureaus and offices of either Department (Public Law 113-76, Sec. 430.).

In the Spotlight:

Service First is a way for the agencies to explore alternative methods of delivering one-stop customer service to the public, sharing people and resources, and harmonizing similar work.

Service First is not an effort to create one agency out of the four agencies. Rather, it creates expectations for working together, as appropriate, to improve customer service and operational efficiency.

This web site contains information to help you determine if Service First is right for you and tools to help you partner with other agencies.
