Appointment AUD Access 01469 Warehouse USMC: CSP Done

Dispatch Mileage Flag 00628 MU OSD Done

Description
DPAS to flag any dispatch exceeding 1000 miles. ADDED Each Agency has a mileage limit per dispatch in their policy.  To assist capture violators, DPAS will be able to exploit the utilization captured to alert leadership.  I also believe having this as a Master Data function, will allow the Agencies to set their own separate mileage limits.

Recommended
Either allow distance to be set under Master Data by user or set flag to show when total dispatch is 1000 or more miles.  Just flag in red above tabs.  Flag during Dispatch Return and on the Maintenance Action List would help

Open Warehouse Actions and ICN Inventory Update 01465 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
Materiel Control technicians need to be aware of all open items that require their attention. Currently, not all Inspection Types display as Open Warehouse Actions on the Message of the Day dashboard. Also, the ICN Inventory inquiry does not display previous and upcoming inspection dates for all Inspection Types.

Recommended
Currently, the DPAS Warehouse only displays upcoming and open inspections with a "INSPECTION" action code. This capability needs to be extend to the rest of the Inspection Actions (cannibalization, inspections, Quality Control, Maintenance, Test, Calibration, Other, Assessment). Additionally, Warehouse Inventory Inquiries only display date information for "Inspection", "Test", "Calibration", and "Maintenance" Inspection Actions. This feature also needs to be implemented for the rest of the Inspection Actions.

Mission Critical
AFI 24-302, 5.41.2.6. Materiel Control ensures Test, Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) tools are scheduled for calibration and certification according to TO 00-20-14-WA-1. Use a visual display board or computer-generated listing to keep the current status of all TMDE requiring calibration.

Replenishment & On-Hand Qty Inquiry 01464 Warehouse AF: VSCOS Removed

Implement Validation of Trading Partner Info 01459 PA Leidos New

Description
DAI has requested that DPAS review its validation of Trading Partner (TP) data within its Accounting Transactions.  They are seeing some transactions that they believe should contain TP data, but do not.  Note:  They could be old transactions as their review encompassed a large time period. They are also receiving Accounting Transactions where the TP data is not valid.  They would like to see DPAS implement additional validation for TP data.  Currently DPAS is only validating the Department Cd allowing the user to type in the Main Account and Limit with only validation that it be 4 characters.

Recommended
DPAS feeds several Accounting Systems that require TP2, TP4, and TP5 data.  DAI and SABRS are two notable interfaces, but there could be others as the DAI interface is considered the current std for new accounting interfaces.  It is recommended that DPAS establish master lookup tables for TP4 (Basic Symbol / Main Account) and TP5 (Subhead/Limit),in addition to the current Department Cd lookup and create associations between them.  The information to populate these lookup values is available from the DFAS Manual 7097.01, Treasury Website and/or from the DCMO Authoritative SFIS Values website. For Non-097 appropriation, the limit/subhead may not be required/applicable. It is also recommended that DPAS review the capture of TP data for all accounting systems regardless of whether that interface accepts the data. Even if the accounting interface does not support it, the user may be required to provide this information off-line.
