Defense Pricing & Contracting - Contracting eBusiness

The Defense Pricing and Contracting (DPC) Contracting eBusiness (CeB) Directorate manages the DoD enterprise data standards, internal control requirements, and systems required to write, distribute, and manage contract actions across the entire procurement lifecycle from acquisition strategy to contract closeout. We are guided by our strategic plan, which can be viewed here.


We oversee procurement enterprise services and capabilities and identify new capabilities for the contracting functional community to enable contracting professionals to more efficiently perform and execute data-driven decisions. Learn about PIEE, SAM, FPDS, the Procurement Toolbox and other capabilities.

Procure to Pay

We advocate for the contracting community’s equities within the Procure to Pay (P2P) business process, through the P2P Process Advocate's Working Group. The P2P business process entails steps by the procurement and financial communities to create, issue, and manage contracts. See more about P2P and its data integration points, commonly known as “Handshakes”.
