The U.S. Army has begun operating an enterprise business system developed by Accenture to support the National Ground Intelligence Center“™s classified accounting and financial management procedures in telework settings.
The Army said Thursday the General Fund EBS – Sensitive Activities platform uses a SAP-based Enterprise Resource Planning framework designed for cloud environments with Impact Level 6 or classified data transmitted through the service“™s Secret Internet Protocol Router Network.
Around 100 personnel served as initial users for the GFEBS-SA platform meant to support the Army Intelligence and Security Command“™s classified business transactions for ground forces intelligence activities.
INSCOM staff used the Defense Information Systems Agency“™s Secured Defense Collaboration Services tool to conduct web conference-based training for the GFEBS-SA platform.
“So much of the work we“™ve done this past month was completely outside the scope of our original plan,“ said Melissa Moreau, the Army“™s acting deputy product director for GFEBS-SA. “We still had to complete all pre-deployment activities, while prioritizing the safety and health of our workforce.“
The GFEBS-SA team is slated to conclude pre-rollout activities ahead of on-premises deployment at SIPR-supported facilities.
In 2012, GFEBS“™ non-classified version went live to support over 52K Army users and more than 1M transactions.
