DLA unveils new system

The Defense Logistics Agency has launched a limited version of its new Business Systems Modernization system, marking a first step in the agency's $500 million, five-year revamping of its out-of-date logistics systems.

The limited rollout is intended to demonstrate the business concepts and the technologies used in BSM, said David Falvey, program executive officer in charge of modernization programs at DLA. The demonstration phase, which began July 31, includes 80 percent of the system's functionality, incorporates less than 5 percent of the items handled by DLA and is being used by 390 users and 100 supervisors, he said.

Accenture Ltd. of Hamilton, Bermuda, is the prime contractor on the BSM contract, which was awarded August 2000. Working with Accenture are SAP America, the U.S. subsidiary of the German company SAP AG, Manugistics Group Inc. of Rockville, Md., and American Management Systems Inc., Fairfax, Va.
