    Change Request: Process Improvement

     DPAS is currently reporting unvalidated capital records to DAI.  The DPAS-DAI Accounting interface report contains records not yet validated.  
    In order to ensure accurate accounting records, MDA requests an update to the DPAS-DAI interface report.  Currently the DPAS is reporting unvalidated assets (records) to DAI. MDA requests DPAS to NOT report to DAI when the Agency Define #2 is marked 'No', since those records are not validated (yet) and they are not considered financially reportable.
    Mission Critical:
    MDA Directorate of Finance Policy:  Capital assets classified as GE, IUS, and OM&S will be validated prior to being reported on Missile Defense Agency (MDA) financial statements.

    This action will allow for a more efficient work flow and minimize the man-hours required to reconcile the interface report.  
    Frequency: Daily
    DPAS will be monitored on a weekly basis in order to identify new assets that are brought to record and that meet financial reporting requirements. (Note: Daily monitoring is required during the last few weeks of the quarter, as assets may be added daily during this time).
    This will affect all MDA Property Accountability users of DPAS.
