The Defense Finance and Accounting Service wants to update its internal business system that is primarily used for paying commercial invoices.
DFAS uses its Computerized Accounts Payable System—Windows (CAPS-W) to pay vendors on time and also as a subsidiary ledger to the general ledger. The system consists of an Oracle relational database management system, with modules for specific business functions. It also has cross-functional modules and query tools.
The agency is studying approaches to consolidate business systems and to possibly integrate systems to provide a more efficient and economical approach to processing transactions. In a new request for information, DFAS wants information on what’s available in the marketplace as it reassess CAPS-W’s functions and capabilities.
DFAS wants to learn about products related to entitlement systems, similar to CAPS-W, such as commercially available upgrades and integration solutions.
DFAS released the RFI May 21. Responses are due June 6.
