Mission
To provide a single, enterprise-wide contract writing and management system to obtain business process efficiencies; support compliance with the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act (FFMIA) of 1996; and integrate with existing ERP solutions and decrease the number of complex interfaces while fostering audit readiness.

Description
ACWS will be the Army’s next generation, single enterprise contracts writing system providing full spectrum contract management, including execution and close out. ACWS will be a mixed system that meets compliance requirements of the FFMIA. The system will be designed to meet the contract activity requirements of all Army users, including forward deployed disconnected users, installations, weapons systems and secure contracting missions.

ACWS will function in low bandwidth/disconnected status for expeditionary forces, and will support unclassified networks, classified networks and all Army contracting requirements. ACWS is expected to utilize centralized services such as clause logic, standardized business rules, including contract line item number structure and standard data schemas such as Procurement Data Standard and Standard Financial Information Structure.

Products and Services
ACWS will use modern technologies to allow for customized workflow, on-demand collaboration and rapid adaptability to frequent changes in regulations, policies and procedures using centralized services, standardized business rules and standard data schemas.
