General Fund Enterprise Business Systems (GFEBS)
GFEBS develops, acquires, integrates, deploys and sustains enterprise-wide financial and procurement management capabilities to support Army’s current and future missions.
GFEBS is the Army’s new web-enabled financial, asset and accounting management system that standardizes, streamlines and shares critical data across the Active Army, the ARNG and the USAR. GFEBS uses Systems Applications and Products in Data Processing software, a COTS ERP solution.
Moving forward, GFEBS plans to negotiate roles and responsibilities with Financial Management and Comptroller by identifying subject matter experts on business process related issues, working with users to address problems, analyzing business processes, analyzing system or training problems, and proposing changes to Tier II Support. GFEBS will also review cost estimates to right-size sustainment and will support the maturation of the Functional Governance Board process.
GFEBS was the first Enterprise Resource Planning structure to fully deploy within the Department of the Army and GFEBS Increment II will continue improving the Army’s business processes. Increment II will allow for full cost reporting of the Army’s outputs (products and services) and will create an auditable trail. It will also accommodate emerging requirements for enhanced financial integration, Army single labor time tracking and environmental and integrated resource management. These requirements not only provide additional capability, but improve automated integration of financial data, enhance business process efficiencies, increase interoperability and maintain auditability.
