The Defense Department has released a request for proposals for the development of an integrated acquisition management system to improve program performance and the rulemaking process.
The Defense Acquisition Regulations System Office announced Feb. 19 that it is seeking competitive offers from small businesses for the Defense Federal Acquisition Supplement Transformation Integration System (DTIS). The deadline for proposals is March 19.
DTIS is expected to help the DARS office implement some of the provisions in the President's Management Agenda and other mandates, according to Defense officials. The system will replace current paper-intensive business applications that are used to manage DOD's interaction in the Federal Acquisition Regulation system.
'The capability will facilitate collaboration among all the stakeholders in DOD's acquisition rulemaking processes,' said Lt. Col. Vincent J. Feck, acting director of operations, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy.
DTIS will include functions for document management, collaboration and workflow management. DTIS will connect with the E-Rulemaking Initiative.
