5 GPC Change Initiative 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.

6 PCOLS Mission Maintain the efficiencies of the purchase card program to meet the department’s micro- purchase needs while leveraging automated capabilities to eliminate fraud, waste and abuse vulnerabilities in the DoD Purchase Card Program.

7 Benefits of Using PCOLS
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

8 Who Uses PCOLS Air Force – Fully Deployed
Defense Agencies – Fully Deployed Army – 70% Deployed

9 What is the PCOLS Suite of Applications
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 and AIM will be discussed further in this training.

10 PCOLS: What is Enterprise Monitoring and Management of Accounts (EMMA)
All DOD GPC Attendees 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.

11 PCOLS: How EMMA Works 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. RMs will use EMMA when they need to add or remove RMs from the RM Pool role. CAC enablement aids as a security benefit to the GPC Program

12 PCOLS: Benefits of EMMA
All DOD GPC Attendees Adds visibility, documents GPC hierarchy Adds accountability, provides an additional level of supervisory involvement throughout the PCOLS applications CAC enabled for security

13 PCOLS: What is Authorization, Issuance, and Maintenance (AIM)
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.

14 PCOLS: AIM and the Bank All DOD GPC Attendees AIM does not duplicate work done at the bank or change current access to the bank The PCOLS Suite of applications will not replace the banking systems that are currently in place.

15 PCOLS: Utilizing AIM 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

16 PCOLS: Benefits of AIM 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

17 PCOLS: How the Data is Exchanged
Financial systems like GFEBS, CEFMS, DFAS, etc are not listed because PCOLS does not exchange data with these systems. Payment related data is exchanged with the financial system and US Bank.

18 GPC Requirements Performed Outside of PCOLS

Any issues or questions regarding payments on accounts would be addressed between your financial system and US Bank. ***Certifying Accounts*** All functions related to certifying GPC accounts are still done the same as they were prior to PCOLS. Any issues or questions regarding this process would be directed to US Bank.
