Army Fields New Enterprise Contract Writing, Management Platform to More Users

The U.S. Army is deploying a new contract management system to improve its procuring activity.

The Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems and the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Procurement have started rolling out the Army Contract Writing System to an additional 400 users inside and outside the continental United States, the Army said.

One ACWS user said the new writing system is significantly better compared to the Procurement Desktop-Defense system, which has been in use for 14 years.

In August, the service launched the new platform aiming to streamline acquisition practices. It was initially rolled out to 104 employees involved in contracting in several locations.

The platform provides several benefits, including generating procurement data standard-compliant transactions, linking to the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment Clause Logic Service to complete required clause interviews and connecting to the Federal Procurement Data System to complete action reports.

The Army has been committed to its modernization efforts. In 2022, it solicited proposals on how to ensure the success of its $900 million modernization contract aimed at strengthening capabilities for multi-domain operations.
