ECSS: How Big is It? >1 Million Transactions/Day 250,000 Users Login: 100Ks of Items 600+ Sites ECSS effects will be visible and felt across the Air Force Logistics Enterprise

5 What Will It Do? ECSS is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) initiative that will revolutionize AF Logistics performance Process-centric transformation The way AF Logisticians accomplish their work The support AF Logisticians provide to Warfighters Leverages cutting-edge technology and best business practices to create enterprise view Materials Management Finance Training Qualifications Reporting Workflow Maintenance Supply Logistics Installation Mgmt. Force Planning Acquisition Readiness Mission Planning Retrograde Quality Assurance An ERP is a software solution that coordinates all of a business’ information and processes, including supply chain processes, to overcome some of the issues of compartmentalization and stove-piping. Thousands of companies and many government and defense agencies are utilizing ERPs to improve their business processes, costs, and overall supply chain visibility. An ERP is a business-wide approach that: • Integrates information across all organizational components • Facilitates the flow of information among all the different functions and processes • Enables users to plan future activities based on real-time activities/events • Supports analysis of trends to improve overall performance. ECSS will replace many legacy processes and systems now in use with integrated processes and applications. As a result, logisticians will be able to see real-time data and more easily share information, regardless of location or function. Gold Standard ERP is the corporate world’s gold standard for the coordination of business processes. More than 70% of the world’s multinational corporations use ERP as their means to provide real-time information, spread the workload, anticipate demand, and plan for the future, all without adding personnel or inventory. Ambitious Plan ECSS is one of the most ambitious ERP applications ever attempted in the Department of Defense (DoD). Moving an organization from the use of hundreds of legacy systems to an integrated ERP solution is difficult, and the size of this particular Air Force transformation makes this even more challenging. Creates global visibility of assets/equipment and enterprise data ownership

6 processes with reengineered processes
How Will It Do That? ECSS accomplishes this by: Establishing a real-time, modernized information system Using commercial ERP software Horizontally integrating business practices across the enterprise Includes: 600+ AF locations 3 DFAS sites 250,000+ users We will adopt new processes and practices Changes the way we do business Works across current organizational lines ECSS replaces hundreds of legacy systems so organizations can more easily communicate with each other and replaces many current processes with reengineered processes

8 Intro to LogFins

9 Logistics Financials Introduction
Logistics Financials or “LogFins” refers to the Air Force Logistics financial operations portion of ECSS. LogFins will allow ECSS to be the system of record for the Air Force Working Capital Fund (WCF) and a critical feeder system for the Air Force General Fund (AF GF). ECSS will help Air Force Logistics financial operations improve in three vital areas: Efficiency Effectiveness Ability to Comply with Chief Financial Officer mandates Logistics Financials or “LogFins” refers to the Air Force Logistics financial operations portion of ECSS.

11 How ECSS will Improve AF LogFins

12 How ECSS will Improve AF LogFins
The following slides gives examples of current Air Force Logistics Financials areas for improvement and how ECSS will impact them: United States Standard General Ledger Funds Control Defense Logistics Management System (DLMS) format for incoming Interfund Bills Prevention of Duplicate Payments The following slides gives examples of current Air Force Logistics Financials areas for improvement and how ECSS will impact them. These examples were presented jointly by Air Force and Team CSC members at the LogFins Preliminary Design Review on 27 Aug 09. 12

13 United States Standard General Ledger
Improvement Opportunity Currently there is no Air Force-wide visibility of logistics financial transactions. Air Force legacy systems use General Ledger accounts that do not always comply with the Treasury Financial Manual. Currently there is difficulty in system reconciliation between the General Ledger and the subsidiary ledgers at the line-item level. United States Standard General Ledger (USSGL) Improvement Opportunity Currently there is no Air Force-wide visibility of logistics financial transactions. Air Force legacy systems use General Ledger accounts that do not always comply with the Treasury Financial Manual. Currently there is difficulty in system reconciliation between the General Ledger and the subsidiary ledgers at the line-item level. 13

14 United States Standard General Ledger
ECSS Impact ECSS will provide a central repository for logistics financial transactions, resulting in total financial visibility. ECSS will provide General Ledger accounts that comply with the Treasury Financial Manual. ECSS will dramatically improve systematic reconciliations between the General Ledger and subsidiary ledgers.

ECSS will result in total financial visibility 14

15 Funds Control Improvement Opportunity
There is an inadequate validation of funds based on policy requirements and business rules. Current processes permit financial transactions to exceed available funds. There are minimal controls to prohibit obligations in advance of an appropriation.

16 ECSS will provide visibility and validation
Funds Control ECSS Impact ECSS will provide visibility of the type and amount of funds available for use and validate their use against business rules and policy requirements. ECSS will validate the requested funds against the available funds to mitigate Anti-Deficiency Act violations. ECSS will provide for the commitment of funds for request of goods and services and the automatic de-commitment and obligation when contracts/purchase orders are awarded.

ECSS will provide visibility and validation 16

17 Improvement Opportunity
DLMS Improvement Opportunity Current legacy systems call for old Military Standard Billing System (MILBILLS) format which requires duplication of fields due to limitation of characters. This calls for intricate knowledge of legacy data format to decipher transaction. Currently there are three systems involved in making payment and posting general ledger for requisitions initiated to the Primary Inventory Control Activity (PICA) after bills are received from the Defense Automated Address System (DAAS). 17

18 DLMS ECSS Impact ECSS will meet the DoD requirement for ERPs to accept DLMS formatted transactions which provide more detailed information eliminating duplication of fields. ECSS will modernize the payment process by providing visibility of supplier and buyer detail. ECSS will receive the DLMS 810L record (bill) directly from DAAS reducing interface errors. ECSS will transform the interfund process in that the requisition, payment, and general ledger will now reside in one system. 18

19 Prevention of Duplicate Payments
Improvement Opportunity There is currently no central repository for logistics invoices. The entitlement systems are disparate. Contract modifications that change the pay station have caused duplicate payments. Prevention of Duplicate Payments Improvement Opportunity There is currently no central repository for logistics invoices. The entitlement systems are disparate. Contract modifications that change the pay station have caused duplicate payments. 19

20 Prevention of Duplicate Payments
ECSS Impact ECSS will be the central repository for Air Force Logistics invoices, regardless of the entitlement system. ECSS will have a duplicate invoice validation on the vendor, including pre-validation invoices. These invoices will be matched to a Contract Line Item Number (CLIN) so that the available balance can be validated and a receipt can be obtained if required.
