Warfighters in a contingency environment need easy-to-use tools that simplify the acquisition process and get requirements fulfilled quickly and efficiently. DPAP is helping field two e-business tools to optimize the acquisition process at key junctures:
Other tools assist in executing and managing business in a contingency (as well as conventional) environment, such as:
- Making Micropurchases – using Purchase Cards
- Tracking and Reporting Cross-Servicing Agreements – using AGATRS
- Managing Supplier Relationships – using JCCS
- Overseeing Contractor Stewardship of Government-Furnished Property – using IUID
The 3in1 tool is a technology-based solution to record and transfer data when conducting on-the-spot, over-the-counter, field purchases of supplies and non-personal services (cash and carry type purchases), which have traditionally been conducted using an SF44. The 3in1 Tool is a small lightweight device that will capture and record purchase, payment, and receiving information including the user's receipt of goods and vendor acknowledgement of payment. The device will automatically transfer that data to the 3in1 Module in the Joint Contingency Contracting System (JCCS).
Please see the JCCS website at https://www.jccs.gov/olvr/ for additional 3in1 Tool information.
cASM is a web-based, simple to use application designed to assist those individuals responsible for initiating contracting requirements in an expeditionary environment. The application will identify the documents required to initiate a contract, provide templates for the documents, prompt the user for the information required to complete the documents, and will route the documents to the appropriate reviewers and approvers. cASM will also alert individuals when it is their responsibility to take action on the requirements package. cASM's output will be a completed, approved contract requirements package for a forward deployed contracting office to take action
