The Army and Computer Sciences Corp. this week will issue a request for
solution, calling on vendors of enterprise resource planning tools to provide
the product on which the $681 million Wholesale Logistics Modernization
Program will be based.
The Army plans to use the WLMP contract to re-engineer the more than
25-year-old systems and processes in its logistics operations. The request
for solutions will go out to ERP vendors SAP America Inc., PeopleSoft Federal
and Oracle Government.
The ERP system will provide the supply chain and financials software,
but the Army is also committed to adopting the commercial best practices
inherent in the system instead of adapting the system to the current Army
processes, said Jeff Plotnik, CSC vice president for Department of Defense
supply chain solutions and WLMP program manager.
