The U.S. Army is set to replace its enterprise contract writing system with the goal of interfacing with other enterprise resource planning systems, Federal Times reported Wednesday.
Steve Watkins writes the Army will release a draft solicitation in the coming months after Heidi Shyu, the Army’s top acquisition executive, recently approved the proposed system.
Col. Patrick Burden, project manager of the Army’s general fund enterprise business systems, told the publication the new system is meant to connect with GFEBS, the logistics modernization program and the Army’s corps of engineers financial management system.
Federal Times reports the Army intends for the new contract writing system to supplant the standard procurement system/procurement desktop-defense and procurement automated data and document system.
Burden told Federal Times the Army has yet to decide on the platform for the system.
Watkins writes a final request for proposal for the ACWS is scheduled for release in fiscal year 2015.
