Abstract: CBASS(CORPORATE BUSINESS APPLICATION SOFTWARE SYSTEM), BUYIT COMPUTER PROGRAM Abstract: A critical factor in the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's (ARL) strategy to do more with less resources is the automation of a single, ARL wide purchasing process. This report describes the initial plan for developing the BuyIt Prototype, a software prototype for an automated purchasing system that provides an electronic workflow for ARL purchasing processes and interfaces with standard Department of Defense (DoD) systems required by those processes. The BuyIt Prototype is the first component of the Corporate Business Application Software System (C-BASS), a suite of integrated online transaction process software products that will provide Corporate business functions electronically throughout the ARL enterprise. C-BASS is a cornerstone of the new ARL Enterprise Information Technology Architecture developed in 1997 by the Enterprise Systems Division. This report provides a statement of the problem to be solved by the BuyIt Software, the technical and management approaches to be used, and a detailed project schedule.
