Navy opens wallet wide for e-business

For its third round of electronic-business pilots this year, the Navy's eBusiness Operations Office today announced plans to spend $4 million on six new projects.

The Navy chose projects ranging from procurement automation to operational training:

  • Joint Expeditionary Warfare Logistics: The Marine Corps' Port Hueneme, Calif., will develop a system to provide asset visibility for all naval construction projects into the Corps' existing Web-enabled Common Logistics Command and Control System.

  • Training and Operational Readiness Information Services: The Afloat Training Group for the Pacific in San Diego will devise a way to capture, store, retrieve and share performance data from operational exercises.

  • Shipboard Movement Tracking: The Marine Corps pilot aims to use handheld scanners to wirelessly track bar coded assets in real time during embarkation.

  • Zoned Automated Procurement'IT Integration with One Touch Support: The Naval Supply Systems Command will create an application to include zoned procurements in the service's One Touch Support Program.

  • Metrics and Status for Performance-Based Logistics Management: The Naval Inventory Control Point in Mechanicsburg, Pa., will draft standard metrics for monitoring performance-based logistics contracts.

  • Supplier Relationship Management and Enablement: The Fleet and Industrial Supply Center in Norfolk, Va., will build a Web-based interface for loading and maintaining supplier contract and catalog information on the Defense Department's online buying site, EMall.

  • The Navy eBusiness Operations Office, which was established in September 2000, funds short-term online projects and provides centralized management for Navy smart-card programs. There are now 35 active projects.
