Provide SA/LW Registry Reporting to Warehouse 01201 PA SOCOM New

Description
DPAS's Warehouse /  Materiel Mgmt modules currently do not report electronically to a Component or National SA/LW registry.  The Navy Registry located at CRANE, IN was not accepting electronic transactions, but is willing to consider an electronic feed based upon transactions that are processed.
  The DPAS PA Module currently interfaces with the Army Component / National Registry via it's UIT Interface with LOGSA, but it does not currently support the SA/LW accounted for within the Warehouse module.
With USSOCOM looking to utilize the Warehouse module for weapons inventory and with SPECWARCOM migrating its weapons accountability to the Warehouse module (from SWALIS), there is a need to automate the reporting / reconciliation process to reduce the level of effort to maintain the registry and improve the overall reporting and speed I.E. perform the reporting using the actual transactions processed within the inventory system vs. manual documents that are generated by hand often times.

Recommended
Automate the SA/LW reporting for warehouse actions to the Navy Component Registry (P64).
  All receipts, issues, gains, and losses will be reported via the DLMS140A transaction set.
  Inventory adjustments (Stock Nbr / Serial Nbr changes) will be reported via the DLMS 888A transaction set.
  The implementation must be accomplished in a way that DPAS can accept registry 'transaction rejects' from the component registry (transactions that were sent to the registry for processing which were not accepted.
  The design should permit the user take the  necessary corrective action, and resubmit the transaction along with simultaneously correcting the user record in DPAS.
  This SCR also includes the requirement to be able to conduct reconciliations with the component SA/LW registry, and respond to registry follow-ups.

Mission Critical
This SCR is considered critical for the successful implementation of DPAS.  With USSOCOM planning to use the Materiel Mgmt/Warehousing modules to manage the wholesale inventory of weapons and related accessories that are subject to registry reporting, the level of effort to perform this manually is cost and resource prohibitive.

Benefits
Automating this process will improve reporting accuracy, and reduce the cost of reporting to the federal government.  Utilizing standard DLMS transactions should enable this interface to be used to feed the other component registries (Army  & Air Force), assuming they accept DAAS style transactions.

Users
The affected users are likely Navy, Marine Corps, and USSOCOM and their associated organizations report their SA/LW reportable items via the Navy Registry.  With validation/testing, the use of this capability could be expanded to other Service Registries.

Add Condition Code to Custodian Asset Report 01200 PA Navy New

Description
The asset condition code is not on the Custodian Asset Report.  Verification of the assets condition is a requirement for Navy FIAR inventory efforts.  It is also required to keep the condition code updated in the APSR per SECNAVINST 7320.10A.

Recommended
Add condition code to the Custodian Asset Report.
The condition code has been added to the custodian inventory report to support inventory requirements of DODI 5000.64 and SECNAVINST 7320.10a however recommend it also be added to the Custodian Asset Report.  After an inventory is conducted the Custodian Asset Report is provided to the custodian as documentation of assets in their custody.

Mission Critical
Not mission critical but a FIAR requirement, and SECNAVINST 7320.10A requires verification of condition code.

Benefits
Will improve custodian's ability to view the current condition of assets in DPAS to meet the SECNAVINST 7320.10A requirement.

TCTO (Time Compliance Technical Order) 01199 Warehouse AF: AFERMS New

Description
We have one time inspections called TCTOs (Time Compliance Technical Orders) that are required to be accomplished on items.  these items have a completion date assigned that can range from immediately (which renders the item in-serviceable until it is accomplished), to next inspection cycle which allows the item to be used as is until the next scheduled inspection.

Recommended
create an inspection type of TCTO that can be assigned to an NSN.  give a field for compliance date.  if the inspection is not completed by the compliance date downgrade to condition "F". this inspection needs to be assigned to all items of the affected NSN to include items that are in kits and items that are issued.  we need to be able to sign off the inspection even if the item is in a kit without first having to remove the item from the kit.

duplicate member profiles 01191 Warehouse AF: AFERMS New

Description
when personnel are issued an item, the CAC is scanned, the search function searches their EDI PI number. If the number is not found it allows you to add the member.  We have many members that are added with a place holder number until their EDI PI can be added when they come into our office. this creates a duplicate of the member.

Recommended
if the EDI PI is not found have the search function move to last name and similar first name of members with EDI PIs starting with "ID" (the place holder identifier).  allow the user to select a profile to update or create a new profile if the found profiles are not correct.

Mission Critical
