Provide Visibility of USCG Exchange Inventory 01616 PA DLA New

Description
The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is migrating some of its logistics processes to DPAS.  One of those processes is 2 warehouses that hold USCG uniforms.  The uniforms are distributed / sold through the U.S Coast Guard Exchanges.  To support asset visibility, the USCG is requesting that DPAS provide visibility of the uniform inventory held by the exchanges.

Recommended
Modify the DPAS to inbound USCG Exchange uniform inventory and provide a view of the inventory.  Phase 1 will be an overlay type file that contains the inventory by Exchange and Stock Nbr.  For Phase 2 (separate SCR), the Exchanges will provide; Receipts, Issues and Inventory Adjustments by Stock Nbr and Store to enable Demand Planning.  The files would be provided to DPAS via DAAS GEX.

Mission Critical
The USCG has indicated that the visibility of the uniform inventory is a must.

Benefits
Improves the management of the USCG uniforms, which ensures the correct qtys are on hand to prevent shortages and overages.

Process GFP Returns for Non-Serialized UII assets 01614 PA DLA New

Description
DPAS is not currently receiving Loan Returns from PIEE.  With Release 2020.2 development effort coming to a close, the changes needed to support this on DPAS is not fully known. This SCR is to support the development effort once PIEE corrects their deficiency.  DPAS has also identified a deficiency when multiple serial numbers are included within a single transaction loop within the XML.  This will also need to be resolved.

Recommended
Modify DPAS to locate the assets that are being returned.  This is a change that was not previously implemented when the previous software support provider did not implement.  With PIEE implementing their GFP module, their system is not functioning as it should, thus DPAS will need to receive test transaction to ensure the changes have been applied.  This SCR will require joint testing to insure the assets can be identified as a GFP return.  The return process also needs to be updated to support the new product type codes introduced in ECP 1138, and resolve the deficiency currently preventing the processing of multiple serial numbers within an XML transaction loop.

Mission Critical
DPAS needs to make several changes to support the return of assets to enable DPAS to properly reflect them in the Pending Transaction table as a return.  These are changes that were identified as being missed when the prior DPAS Support provider made the change to support assets.  There is currently a problem that PIEE is working to send these transactions to DPAS.  It is not currently functioning on their end, thus DPAS is not able to make the changes and test  at this time.

Benefits
Eliminates WAWF TS errors and enables the user to view GFP returns once PIEE corrects their deficiency.

Users
This is impacting all DPAS users trying to transmit WAWF GFP TS transactions.

Provide for the conversion of CAP to GFP 01613 PA DLA New

Description
The PIEE GFP module has the capability for the contractor to unilaterally receipt GFP which results in the government system receiving a 856 PSN Receipt notice. The use of this action would be the conversion of CAP to GFP.  Currently DPAS is not able to process this type of PIEE 856 PSN.

Recommended
Modify the WAWF Inbound processes to enable DPAS to create a Pending Receipt for a CAP to GFP conversion.  The Pending Receipt, when processed would place the item under property book control and show it as Out on Loan to the contractor having all of the fields populated as if the government initiated the loan.  This functionality needs to support, UII, Serialized Non-UII, and Bulk assets.

Mission Critical
This is considered mission critical as many of the DPAS Customer have contractors who purchase CAP that eventually will be converted to GFP.  When this occurs, DPAS is not able to successfully process these inbound transactions.

Benefits
Provides for better control of GFP, streamlines the receipt of CAP to GFP conversion assets by the government whereas the government may not have the information needed to receipt for the materiel easily.  It is recommended that DPAS and PIEE work closely to improve the data contained within the 856 PSN.  Attributes such as Acquisition Date and Acquisition Cost are considered critical data elements that  the file does not currently contain.

Users
This is impacting all DPAS users attempting to manage CAP to GFP materiel in DPAS.

Provide for Contract Nbr Change for GFP Contracts via PIEE Interface 01612 PA DLA New

Description
The PIEE GFP module has the capability for the contractor to update the Contract Nbr for the materiel it has as GFP. This is a result of a Follow-On contract award with the materiel remaining with the contractor.  DPAS is not able to process these transactions.

Recommended
Modify the WAWF Inbound processes to support a change in the Contract Nbr to support Follow-on Contracts.

Mission Critical
This is considered mission critical as many of the DPAS Customers have GFP contracts that awarded to the same Vendor for follow-on work.

Benefits
Provides for better control of GFP, prevents DPAS having errors in its PIEE inbound processing of PSN 856 transactions that are not supported.

Users
This change impacts all Customers with GFP contracts.

Provide for the management of Bulk GFP Mgmt 01611 PA DLA New

Description
DPAS does not currently support the issue of Bulk (Non-Serialized) GFP.  With the addition of new customers, there is now a need to be able to issue Bulk materiel to a contractor and to be able to manage that materiel while with the Contractor.  The system must also provide for the return of the bulk materiel, or portions there of where the contractor uses some of the materiel in their testing / manufacturing process.

Recommended
Modify the DPAS Loan process to provide for the capability to assign Bulk items out on loan.  The system must be able to capture and update the receipt acknowledgment of the materiel by the contractor and also provide for the return of the materiel when the contractor no longer has a use for the GFP.  When the government and contractor is connected to PIEE GFP, DPAS should generate and send 856 PSN transaction to GEX for the Issue and be able to accept the 856 PSN for the receipt acknowledgment and the return of the GFP.  When GFP is not returned, DPAS needs to provide a disposition process for it.

Mission Critical
Yes. With the expanded customer base, there is now a need to be able manage and report Bulk GFP.

Benefits
Improvements to Accuracy, Accountability, Financial Reporting.

Users
This is impacting all DPAS customers that have bulk materiel they need to identify and report as GFP.

Physical Inventory Count 0 01610 Warehouse Navy New

Description
Physical Inventory: If an asset is unaccounted for during an inventory event, DPAS requires you to enter a qty of ‘0” and records that as the date of last inventory. If the asset is unaccounted for, it should not update the date of last inventory. Ideally, modify DPAS so we are not forced to enter a ‘0’ if an asset is unaccounted.
