The USDA’s National Finance Center at the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility provides data center hosting, help desk support, human resources, and payroll services, processing a payroll of $1.7 billion for approximately 640,000 Federal employees in 170 government agencies every two weeks.  NFC employs approximately 1,000 full time positions (not including subcontractors), and approximately 20% of these employees live in eastern New Orleans.

NFC has a tremendous economic impact on the New Orleans area, and in 2009, employees generously contributed over $187,000, to various charities via the Combined Federal Campaign. This accomplishment made NFC the leader among all Federal civilian, military, and postal offices in the Greater New Orleans area.
