ACQUISITION PROGRAM: NAVSUP
Food Service Management, Naval Operational Supply Systems (NOSS), Pre-ACAT USFF
OBJECTIVE: Develop an
information system that will provide Subsistence Total Order and Receipt
Electronic System (STORES) operators and Combat Logistics Officers (CLOs) with
a Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR)-compliant “clearinghouse”
for food subsistence orders that validates and updates subsistence requisition
order units of issue, quantities, and prices (including the acceptability of
substitutes) prior to entering orders into STORES. The solution will also
generate financial obligation/de-obligation transactions to be submitted to
Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERs) based on the STORES/Subsistence Prime Vendor
(SPV) inventory availability.
DESCRIPTION: The current Navy
process for ordering operational forces subsistence items from SPVs is
cumbersome (involving several exchanges between STORES operators, vendors, and
operational forces); causes duplication of work for not in stocks (NISs) and
substitute items which require the ships to create new requisitions. Also,
ships do not always have up to date vendor catalogs. These conditions
contribute to “late” orders, rework; and can create a financial obligation gap
resulting in a FIAR non-compliance issue. Historically the Defense Logistics
Agency (DLA) was creating obligation transactions for BUPERS, however because
of a DLA FIAR notification of finding and recommendation (NFR) DLA will no
longer create obligation documents creating a gap in the Navy’s
Subsistence-in-Kind (SIK) account.
PHASE I: Develop an
operational concept and specify an architecture for a FIAR-compliant CSOR.
Provide a system description for a proof-of-concept, a preliminary screen
mock-up of the application interface, process mapping, and supporting
documentation detailing the proposed system’s capabilities, operations, and
data interfaces to related systems. Develop a Phase II plan.
PHASE II: Develop and deliver
a FIAR-compliant CSOR prototype application that will be utilized by STORES
operators, Military Sealift Command, CLOs, and other users in technology
demonstrations aboard operational ashore and afloat units. Provide a roll-out
plan to introduce and deploy the prototype applications to ashore and afloat
units designated by the Navy, including a plan for achieving Risk Management
Framework (RMF) Certification and other accreditation required for operational
use. The Government will provide in writing the necessary certification
requirements at time of Phase II award.
PHASE III DUAL USE
APPLICATIONS: Support the Navy in transitioning the technology to Navy use.
Deploy the application to ashore and afloat units, Fleet Logistics Centers, and
MSC vessels and installations. Support integration of the CSOR application into
FSM 3.0 and other Navy systems. Support the procurement of necessary software,
hardware and computing capability, plus necessary certifications for all
software/cyber requirements. Provide training, planning, and materials for full
deployment. Demonstrate 99.99% operability without errors.
