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