Abstract : The DDS and the Electronic Document Access/Voucher Processing System (EDA/VPS) capture disbursement information and documentation for commercial and miscellaneous payments processed by the USMC disbursing stations supporting the Global War on Terror. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) developed DDS to fulfill the need for a military tactical disbursing system to account for Treasury funds entrusted to disbursing agents on the battlefield and provide timely reporting of accounting and pay information. DDS is used for a variety of disbursing office functions, including travel pay, military pay, accounts payable, disbursing and collection processes, and reporting. During FY 2006 and FY 2007, DDS processed in excess of 9,600 commercial and miscellaneous payments for more than $310 million. DDS feeds disbursement data to EDAlVPS, which provides access to documents used to support the procurement, contract administration, bill paying, and accounting processes. Because DDS and EDA/VPS are unclassified systems, these systems should not contain classified information.
