25 25 Alternative to Scaling Trial (ATS) 1997 OAG Report Recommendation at paragraph Public Works and Government Services Canada, in consultation with the Interdepartmental Committee and the moving industry, should minimize the risk of overcharging due to weight bumping and strengthen the auditability of invoices from contractors. Consideration should be given to introducing an alternative to the existing basis for pricing moves.

26 26 ATS Objective Increase transparency and auditability as per the OAG recommendation. Answer QOL requirement that members have a legible inventory of goods being shipped.

27 27 ATS Vision Move of household goods becomes an automated, streamlined process from initial estimate to final invoicing. –Initial electronic estimate –Updated electronic estimate –Electronic invoicing –Automated claims processing –Auditable using SWL

28 28 Alternative to Scaling Working Group Standard weight List (SWL) SWL introduced in HGRS contract : 1 April 2001 Electronic Inventory introduced 1 April 2002

29 29 ATS Observations April – September 2004 –Good Points: Inventories had improved (neater manual additions) Some contractors doing electronic estimates

30 30 ATS Observations Challenges: -Number of manual entries did not decrease -Printing updated inventories for member

31 31 Working Group – Major Recommendations Master list of exception codes Parameters for driver inventories and schedule for improvement Refined weights Include non-standard boxes in SWL Reweigh if discrepancies exist Emphasize member responsibility

32 32 ATS – The Future Further refine SWL to be within 3% error 100% electronic inventories –Cooperation between IDC/industry IDC to ensure better knowledge of the process among members –Meetings with relocation specialists Use of scaling/SWL as primary/audit
