Army seeking solution for logistics

CSC WLMP site

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.
