18 December OUSD(C) signed out Management Initiative Decision (MID) 904, which mandated specific remedies to previously identified internal management control deficiencies. 19 November All Procurement Executives were directed to develop a plan and schedule to implement PCOLS in accordance with a phased deployment strategy. Further, it was directed that by January 4, 2010, no purchase cards will be issued unless through the PCOLS capability.
Maintain the efficiencies of the purchase card program to meet the departments micro- purchase needs while leveraging automated capabilities to eliminate fraud, waste and abuse vulnerabilities in the DoD Purchase Card Program.
Integrates card management Reduces Government dependence on banks Streamlines processes Lowers cost Strengthens controls Socioeconomic data Enables clean audit opinion Reduces misuse and fraud Facilitates internal controls Creates business intelligence

PCOLS is a DoD-wide, DoD-operated electronic system that Government Purchase Card (GPC) participants will use to improve the management and accountability of their GPC Program organizations. It is comprised of five web-enabled automated tools: Enterprise Monitoring and Management of Accounts (EMMA) Authorization, Issuance and Maintenance (AIM) Data Mining (DM) Risk Assessment Dashboard (RAD) – Released 4/2014 PCOLS Reporting
EMMA is a web application that allows users to be provisioned for AIM. Users can create and manage organizations and roles, including provisioning users to a specific role. The system was set up with a hierarchical structure and each role has specific permissions assigned to them. All DOD GPC Attendees
The primary user of EMMA is the Agency Organization Program Coordinator (A/OPC). When users of the PCOLS applications are provisioned they will receive an notification with a token embedded link, clicking this link captures the users CAC information and associates it to their specific role. All DOD GPC Attendees CAC enablement aids as a security benefit to the GPC Program
Adds visibility, documents GPC hierarchy Adds accountability, provides an additional level of supervisory involvement throughout the PCOLS applications CAC enabled for security All DOD GPC Attendees
Workflow tool that performs various Purchase Card Program account authorization and maintenance functions. Allows users that are provisioned in EMMA to be assigned to specific accounts in AIM. When account issuance or maintenance requests are processed through the necessary workflow in AIM they are sent automatically to the bank for implementation. ® All DOD GPC Attendees
AIM does not duplicate work done at the bank or change current access to the bank All DOD GPC Attendees
Examples of actions that A/OPCs can perform: Create new Managing and Cardholder accounts Update users on accounts Update purchase limits Change account status Ensure that ongoing training requirements are met ®
Increased visibility with task and account update notifications: Users are notified of updates and changes regarding their accounts Tracks GPC training dates for Primary and Alternate A/BOs and Cardholders-interface with DAU Tracks required appointments and review dates Additional accountability with required supervisory involvement
