Can MILSTRIP be used against it Navy BPAs/contracts on the DOD EMALL?
No. The missing link is still the same: to what Navy system would we send transactions so that the Navy system would bill the customer and pay the vendors? In the DLA scenario we send an EDI 511 to SAMMS via EPPI-ECAT. (For BSM we will be sending the 511 straight to BSM – starting in January). SAMMS accepts the 511 and posts a record to the Active Contract File. SAMMS tells EPPI-ECAT that the order is covered by stock fund and EPPI-ECAT sends out an EDI 850 to the supplier. When the vendor invoices SAMMS pays them and then bills the customer. This is for DLA contracts, so the money comes out right.
- If there is not a NSN on DOD EMALL, is there a way to obtain it from the mall site so the NSN can be supplied to our MILSTRIP personnel with the request to order via the MILSTRIP system?
- Are MAS/BPAs being used in place of the IDIQ government-wide acquisition contracts like Desktop V, with decentralized ordering by several agencies?
- The Navy Office Supply Policy directs us to DOD EMALL for office supplies. Can the cardholder still go directly to JWOD.com, GSA Advantage, etc?
