Automate Transfer of Phyical Inventory Data from Handheld to DPAS 01735 PA Leidos New

Description:

The DPAS Progressive Web App "PWA" for conducting a physical inventory was initially designed to be 100% off-line. To utilize, the user had to manually export and import the data using an Excel file created/managed by DPAS. There was no automated connection between DPAS and the PWA. DPAS needs to provide a seamless automated transfer of the physical inventory data without having to copy and paste files.

 

Recommended:
Provide the capability to for the user to establish an authenticated session between a mobile device and DPAS providing for transfer of the PI data between the device and DPAS without the need for export/import. Once the transfer is complete provide for the PI to be conducted without being connected to DPAS.

SCR_01734 - Customer Support Request 01734 Enterprise Leidos New

Description:
The current DPAS internal trouble reporting process is limited to users of the PA module. DPAS needs to provide the capability to all modules of DPAS. In addition to submitting issues, users should have inquiry and update capabilities of their tickets. If they erroneously create one, they should be able close it.

 

Recommended:
Update the user interface to the current DPAS design. Modernize the back end services to the latest tech stack, establishing api endpoints within a service that will support the new user interface to enable it to be deployed to all modules. The initial efforts will be targeting the DPAS end user community. The M&U module is the initial module targeted for modernization, and will be the first module to have the new capabilities. Once it is operational within the M&U module, implementation will be to the other modules of DPAS. The Customer Support Center will continue to use its existing processes until the it has been implemented across all DPAS modules.

 

Mission Critical:
This SCR is part of the DPAS Modernization effort. The submission / management of user initiated help tickets is to be implemented module independent. The overall effort is to reduce integration efforts as modules are added and to provide the user and customer support staff with improved capabilities.

 

Benefits:

Submit Materiel Mgmt Accounting Transactions to Advana 01733 Enterprise USAF New

Description:

Advana is the DoD data store for financial feeder transactions. DPAS currently sends accounting transactions for the Property Accountability module, but is not sending accounting transactions that are generated from its Materiel Management. module. DPAS needs to transmit accounting transactions that are generated for the Air Force GFM-A OM&S activity to enable full accounting of all GAFS-R transactions.

 Recommended:

Incorporate the accounting transactions that are generated from within Materiel Management module along with the Property Accountability accounting transactions to Advana on a monthly basis as part of the UOT feed.

 

Mission Critical:
Yes. With Advana having all financial feeder transactions, it should include those generated by DPAS's Materiel Management module.

 

Benefits:
Provides full accounting of all DPAS accounting activity. Enables a reconciliation of all accounting transactions between the source and financial system.

 

Users:
All customers requiring financial reporting for materiel/equipment held within the Materiel Management module.

Description:
 
Need a customized role with access specified on the attached/referenced spreadsheet. The role is to be called "MEPS Manager" and have a curriculum number of 9024. 
 
Recommended:
 
Create customized role.
 
Mission Critical:
 
No
 
Benefits:
 
Gives USMEPCOM users a limited access role for the processes needed for their direct function. Otherwise the next best role gives too much access to processes not needed or trained on.
 
Users:
 
Yes (Affects all users)
User Queries For All Modules 01731 Enterprise Leidos New
Description:
 
DPAS does not currently provide users (to include Information Owners (IOs)) the ability to run user access/role queries in all modules.  The 'Agency Pre-defined Inquiry' role does provide limited queries for PA and M&U only; however, "User Training Status" and "Users UIC"  need to be improved to provide additional helpful user column information.  All other modules need a role to provide accurate and helpful user queries.  (note: query "User Listing" apart of Agency Pre-defined Inquiry role does not provide accurate user information).
 
Recommended:
 
For PA/MU improve the Agency Pre-defined Inquiry role to include additional user column data.  For all other modules provide new role for user access/role query ability.
 
Mission Critical:
 
Yes, this is mission critical to assist Commands with managing their user base as well as assist them in completing their Annual User Audit.  This also helps us to support our SSAE audit readiness.
 
Benefits:
 
Appropriate users (to include Information Owners and Alternates) will have the ability to run user queries in all modules to have visibility of their users' access and roles to support the needs of their user base as well as complete their Annual User Audits.
 
Users:
 
This affects all users who need the ability to run user access queries to support their command's access to DPAS.
DD 1149 'From' Address Option 01730 Enterprise VSCOS New
Description:
 
System lacks address options when generating a DD Forms1149, Requisition and Invoice/Shipping Document through Property Accountability (PA).  The form populates the "From" block using the assigned UIC's APO address.  In many circumstances, the item (i.e., vehicle) shipment location is not collocated with UIC's APO location.  The address issue results with the Transportation Office rejecting the shipment request because "From" block does not accurately reflect physical location of shipment.  Allowing DPAS users the ability to edit the "From" field generating the DD Form 1149 streamlines process, eliminates errors and provides accurate shipping documents.
 
Recommended:
 
Request DPAS add an editable "From" field to the Generate Forms > DD Form 1149 function similar to the "Ship To - Mark For" field.  Providing a space for users to manually enter the address and/or use the address browse function to populate Section 1 of the DD1149. Recommend linking the address browse function to addresses loaded under the UIC's Master Data within PA and Maintenance & Utilization (M&U) modules.  A dropdown menu allowing users to narrow Address Type search (i.e., EP-Equipment Pool, MO-Maintenance Officer, AO-Actbl Prop Officer, or 02-DODAAC TAC(2) used for FREIGHT).
 
The desired end result is the user generating a DD Form 1149 with their preferred "From" address vs. the system populating Section 1 with the UIC's APO address.
 
Mission Critical:
 
Critical.  Accurate shipping documents ensure warfighters receive critical items when and where necessary to execute mission.  Streamlining DPAS prevents erroneous shipment actions due to incorrect ship "From" location.  
 
Benefits:
 
Incorrect shipment documentation drives additional shipping costs, delays/cancels shipment and increases mission failure rates.  Adding address edit/selection function eliminates shortfalls and results in warfighter mission success.
 
Users:
 
This will affect all DPAS users.
Add GFE Accountability and Financial Reporting to ICP/WH Modules 01729 Enterprise USAF New
Description:
 
AF has determined its contractor inventory control points (CICPs) also manage general support equipment for their program offices. The general support equipment in the possession of CICPs is a type of Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) and is currently not accounted for or financially reported on the AF financial statements.  AF GFM-A team proposes incorporating the additional ITFRs into the DPAS ICP and Warehouse modules to allow the CICPs to account for and financially report the GFE via the same processes in DPAS used for GFM.
 
Recommended:
 
Incorporate the additional ITFRs and process flows/narratives into the DPAS ICP and Warehouse modules.  Configure ICP module to capture key data elements including; Acquisition cost, Acquisition date and serial number; and calculate depreciation for capital assets. Configure ICP module to financially report capital assets with asset type code of “G” to GAFS-R.  
 
Mission Critical:
 
Asset accountability and financial reporting is mandated.  Need by date is Dec 2021.
 
Benefits:
 
This would provide accountability and financial reporting for AF GFE managed by contractors improving the AF’s audit results. This solution would replace the AF’s manual reporting efforts with automated processes using the AF’s Accountable Property System of Record (APSR) for Equipment.  Solution would benefit other services that use DPAS ICP and Warehouse modules for ICP accountability and financial reporting.
 
Users:
 
ALL AF GFM-A users of DPAS
FAMIS-WCF Interface Update 01728 PA DISA New
Description:
 
DPAS does not allow for 18 characters for Job Order Number and Depreciation Job Order Number for the FAMIS-WCF interface - interface code "AC"
 
Recommended:
 
Update the FAMIS-WCF interface to allow 18 characters for Job Order Number and Depreciation Job Order Number due to DISA's OneFund implementation for interface code "AC"
 
Mission Critical:
 
Mission mandated - DISA's Working Capital Fund is moving to a single fund instead of two (combining TSEAS & CS). This change is going live on 10/1/21 for financial reporting and we need to update the interface from DPAS to properly account for PP&E.
 
Benefits:
 
This implementation is needed to correctly financial account for DISA's PP&E
 
Users:
 
Yes, this action affects all user within the Agency.
WM Issue to PA 01727 Enterprise Leidos New
Description:
 
The DPAS current Property Accountability module does not provide for the Accountable Property Officer (APO) to request equipment from the Warehouse module to be issued, or purchased as would be customary when the DPAS Warehouse module is operating / provide the organization with its Base Supply functions.
 
Recommended:
 
The integration of the 2 modules will occur as a multiple phase approach.  This initial phase will enable the Warehouse (WM) to issue to the Accountable Property Office (PA) equipment that is on hand.  The system will establish a Due In record in the Property Accountability module at the Site/UIC with the Custodian being optional. Future phases will incorporate the ability for the APO to request items from the Warehouse establishing the Due In in PA and a Due Out in WM.  When the warehouse issues the item, the Due Out will be closed with the PA Due In being updated to reflect the item has been issued and is awaiting for the APO to receipt for the item.
 
Mission Critical:
 
This is part of the DPAS modernization effort that is to provide more cross integration of the modules / processes of DPAS.
 
Benefits:
 
This change will reduce the time required to receipt for materiel being issued from the warehouse to the property book as well as provide improved accuracy and financial accountability for the issued asset.
 
Users:
 
It will affect all organizations that are using the Warehouse and Property Accountability modules.
Fuel Cd - Fuel Type Cd Inquiry 01726 MU DF-VEHS New
Description:
 
System does not provide Fuel Cd or Fuel Type Cd inquires or Reports at the asset level for complete vehicle fleet. Agency and Maint Activity users require information for higher headquarters or OSD data calls and to validate vehicle profiling accuracy within the Maint Asset Master.  System allows action for FAST reportable assets, but fails to allow complete vehicle fleet management.
 
Recommended:
 
Add Fuel Cd and Fuel Type Cd as available fields within Inquiries>Maintenance>Maint Asset.  Similar to FAST reportable assets, but for ALL assets
 
Mission Critical:
 
Critical and mandated.  Capability enables agency and vehicle fleet managers to fulfill Federal, DoD, and Air Force data calls similar to FAST and DLA-Energy reporting.  Data accuracy ensures compliance with Executive Orders and congressional mandates.
 
Benefits:
 
Available of fields significantly reduces time-to-need executing data calls and validating records. Current process requires accessing each asset's MAM to view the Details Basic Tab.  Another option is submitting a DPAS Tier II customer support request for data.  Both options increase task for time-sensitive data calls and records validation on information readily available for FAST assets, but lacking on complete vehicle fleet.  Adding inquiry and report fields eliminates workload on all parties.
 
Users:
 
This will affect all users within the Air Force and fleet managers across the DoD.  
Change Hover Note in M&U Preferences 01725 MU USAF New
Description:
 
Message that displays when hovering over the "Non-Mission Capable" checkbox on the "Current Preferences", "Other Preferences" screen doesn't adequately explain the purpose of the option.  Request a more clear description be added.
 
Recommended:
 
Change message displayed when hovering over the "Current Preferences", "Miscellaneous Preferences" checkbox from "Check to default NMC in Work Order" to "Check to default all new Work Orders to NMC status".

Not mission critical but will reduce confusion and allow smoother transition to M&U for new personnel.
 
Benefits:
 
Improves Work Order accuracy, reduces time spent opening new work orders. 
 
Users:
 
All M&U users.
Adding DoD Serial Nbr to Field Options & MU Screens 01724 MU USAF New
Description:
 
DoD Serial Nbr field is not available as a field option in all M&U screens and functions.  USAF SE uses the DoD Serial Number field in M&U to associate the asset and DPAS record with the historical record in legacy systems.  We do this by documenting the legacy system ID in the DoD Serial Nbr field in DPAS.  Additionally, in many cases this ID is physically stenciled on the asset and is the primary means of ready identification.  
 
Recommended:
 
Include the DoD Serial Nbr as a field option on all inquiry screens.  Display DoD Serial Nbr field on all profiling, work order, work plan, maintenance schedule, and other primary functional screens where the serial number or asset ID are displayed.
 
Mission Critical:
 
Mission Critical.  For most AF SE maintenance organizations the DoD Serial Nbr represents the primary means of equipment identification when the equipment is in use.
 
Benefits:
 
Significantly reduces time spent identifying equipment when needed for maintenance or inspection, improves accuracy of documentation and accountability by providing the most used identification method on necessary screens.  Also has safety implications when a piece of equipment must be removed from service quickly to prevent injury to personnel or damage to a weapon system.  Also allows custodians to more quickly and accurately inventory equipment.  Significantly reduces time spent profiling by providing the most known and available identifier on the screen for assets awaiting profiling.
 
Users:
 
Affects all users.
 
TDMS Interface Removal 01723 Enterprise Leidos New
Description:
 
 USMC has sunset the Technical Data Management System (TDMS), thus the TDMS interface is no longer operational.  
 
Recommended:
 
This SCR is to remove the TDMS Interface system from the DPAS.  As part of this effort, DPAS will remove / update the user's catalogs to reflect either FLIS or no external catalog that are currently aligned with TDMS.
 
Mission Critical:
 
Yes.  Unused code is not permitted to exist within a system (STIG violation).
 
Benefits:
 
Improves performance and reduces the cost of maintaining the system with all references and BRs associated with TDMS removed.
 
Users:
 
The TDMS interface was used by USMC entities.  The Consolidated Storage Program (CSP) has already re-aligned to utilize FLIS.  A few other catalogs are currently associated with the TDMS interface.
DPAS System Admin Review Process 01722 Enterprise Leidos New
Description:
 
DPAS received a NFR for its 2021 SSAE 18 audit review for its review of system processes.  Currently DPAS's DAC, Quartz, and Pendulum processes provides no confirmation process when a DPAS administrator reviews background processes.  DPAS does produce a daily report relating to the DAC processes (Batch, Reports and Process Queue), but even within, DPAS does not have a documented process that indicates that DPAS has reviewed the report and has taken action when an action is required.  
 
Recommended:
 
DPAS develop a process where the System Administrator can confirm that a review of the processes was performed and the date/time it was performed.  The goal would be to have a single control that can be implemented throughout the system where the SA could select, and enter comments to confirm that a review was completed.  Upon Save, the process would write a row to a table containing the Users Id, Date/Time, what process was reviewed and the comments they may have entered.  When requested to show proof that the reviews were being conducted in accordance with the DPAS procedures, DPAS could export the data to provide validation that the review is being performed.
 
Mission Critical:
 
Yes - Satisfy the SSAE18 audit process, without having to save the page, convert it to PDF and digitally sign it every time a review is performed.  
 
Benefits:
 
Reduces the cost to validate the reviews are being performed and provides positive confirmation.  
 
Users:
 
This supports the SSAE 18 / MDS requirements for positive validation that DPAS is reviewing the system in accordance to its procedures.
Warehouse Activity Report 01721 Warehouse USSOCOM New
Description:
 
Within the Issues - Unit Transfer section of the Warehouse Activity Report (LPWHR78), the
account name in which the assets are being transferred to is not displayed.
 
Recommended:
 
Add an additional column which contains the Account Name of who the assets were transferred to. If needed, the LIN/TAMCN or Condition Code can be removed from this section to provide the needed room of adding a new column.
 
Mission Critical:
 
Mandated - Day to day activities can still be completed.
 
Benefits:
 
Adding this additional column would assist in accountability as well as reduce the time as the user would have a report which shows the complete transaction of where the asset was transferred from and where it was transferred to.
 
Users:

This greatly affects our Armory users as they must be able to show the complete electronic transactions for accountability purposes. A minor affect is relayed to the rest of the user base for the times that a unit transfer is conducted.
UII and pRFID Association 01720 Enterprise Leidos New
Description:
 
Since the legacy handheld applications are no longer supported by the project, there is no method, outside of initial asset receiving to associate a UII marking or RFID tag information to assets within DPAS.
 
Recommended:
 
Provide the ability to capture and associate IUID markings and/or pRFID tag to an asset within DPAS utilizing AIT and/or mobile devices.  This include both serial and bulk pRFID tag information and would be available within the Property book and Warehouse modules.
 
Mission Critical:
 
There are more and more organizations evaluating passive RFID as a more effective method of asset identification.  There is also a need to collect and associate Bulk RFID tag information within DPAS to enable the conducting of physical inventories and performing issues.
 
Benefits:
 
Improves the accuracy and efficiency of identifying assets in several of the materiel management processes within DPAS
