cASM Task Order 7 Awarded

As a continuing effort to support Warfighters overseas and stationed within the United States, the Contingency Acquisition Support Model (cASM) Program Office under the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) awarded Task Order 7 to Total Quality Systems for development of new functionality to the system, on 23 August 2017. cASM is a one of a kind system within the Department of Defense (DoD) that directly supports pre-contract award requirements development and documentation for procurements, primarily in the contingency (deployed) environment. Using a similar approach to tax preparation software, cASM users answer questions regarding an intended purchase and cASM populates FAR/DFAR required documents/forms. This tool achieves significant reductions in the time necessary to provide Contracting Officers an accurate and complete purchasing package. Its world-wide web-based structure allows visibility of all packages in the workflow and electronic signatures eliminate the need to travel in a hostile environment just to get an approval “wet” signature.
