DOD to test architecture
The Defense Department this month will release two requests for proposals for pilot programs using its Business Management Modernization Program architecture.
The Defense Department will award contracts for a new accounting system based on the requirements identified last April by defense employees and contractor IBM Corp.
U.S. Transportation Command, Air Force Mobility will conduct one test, and the Army Installation Management Agency will run the other one during fiscal 2005, said JoAnn Boutelle, the Defense Department's deputy chief financial officer. "Eventually, all the bases will run the same system with some tweaking needed," she said.
