Smartphone purchases, phone to phone payments, Sprint's partnership with Google and Citibank to launch Google Wallet . . . the convergence of online, mobile, and physical point of sale channels has provided payment providers with the opportunity to develop applications using a range of technologies, such as cloud, QR codes, and "geo-fencing" provided by companies like Square - is there even a role for the Federal Reserve Bank anymore? Jim Cunha, Senior Vice President of the Treasury and Financial Services Group will tell us how Boston's Fede ral Reserve Bank has taken a lead role in the face of radically changing technologies. 

Jim heads up Cash Processing, Payments/Mobile Strategies, and Wholesale Payment Operations.  The group is also responsible for two emerging payment businesses for the U.S. Treasury: Stored Value Card (SVC) and Invoice Processing Platform (IPP). SVC is a prepaid smartcard based service used by the Department of Defense for domestic training bases and overseas peace-keeping bases. 

IPP helps automate the purchase order and invoice exchange processing for US government agencies and their vendors, and functions as a central repository for vendor payment related information.  Lastly, they are developing the Treasury's future cash concentration system and operating account management infrastructure.       

Jim has worked at the Federal Reserve Bank since 1984. Prior to that, he worked at Fleet National Bank.  He has a BS in Accounting and Philosophy from Northeastern University and a BA in Computer Science from Rhode Island College. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the New England ACH (NEACH) Association and Chairman of the Board of Children's Friend and Family Services of Salem, Massachusetts.
