The National Imagery and Mapping Agency is rolling out a Web-based program to automate its procurement processes.
NIMA's Procurement and Contracts Office recently began using the Prism Web module from Compusearch Software Systems Inc. of Dulles, Va., to streamline its business processes.
Tests of the system began in March, and by the end of August all NIMA offices will begin using Prism, NIMA officials said.
Prism lets users generate contract requirements packages and purchase requests online from anywhere in the world. Users can also check the status of a program through Prism's query process. The application also lets contractors submit electronic invoices.
