Navy funds e-business projects

After culling through 360 submissions, the Navy picked eight e-business pilots that it plans to fund this fiscal year, it announced Thursday.

The Navy's eBusiness Operations Office, which is run by the Naval Supply Systems Command (Navsup), asked for pilot proposals from Navy and Marine Corps commands in early November 2000.

Through the pilot projects, the Navy plans to evaluate new technologies and systems that could be put to use across the department.

In evaluating the proposals, the Navy first determined if a submission proved or demonstrated a concept — the definition of a pilot. The projects that survived the initial screening were then analyzed for their potential impact across the department; their cost (they must cost under $1 million); the time required to complete the project (they must be completed in 90 to 120 days); the impact to the Navy and e-business strategies; and the technology mix of the projects.

Total funding for this round of projects is $3.5 million. The Navy expects to fund additional pilots this fiscal year.

The eight pilots selected for execution this fiscal year include:

1. Pay and Personnel Ashore, from the Commander in Chief, Atlantic Fleet.

2. RF Storeroom, from Navsup.

3. Maps and Charts Tracking System, from the Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet.

4. Deployment Logistics Program, from the Naval Regional Contracting Center, London.

5. Smart Web Move, from Navsup.

6. Web-Based Automated Confidential Financial Disclosure Process, from the Marine Corps.

7. Global Amphibious Total On-line Resource Link, from the Marine Corps.

8. Medical Appointments on the Web, from the Naval Medical Center, San Diego.
