Abstract:

The problem of missing government bills of lading GBLs in the Defense transportation payment process, while produced by a variety of causes, can be minimized through completion of the original concept of operations and by implementing a few system enhancements to accommodate some lessons learned. Program completion involves measures to improve GBL tracking and transmission of electronic GBLs to the carriers. Enhancements include providing acknowledgements for all interface transmissions and adequate resources and procedures for monitoring those acknowledgments. Failure to improve the integrity of data exchange across all interfaces will seriously jeopardize the future of Defense transportations electronic data interchange program. Implementing the recommendations in this report will move the program toward the full achievement of its intended expectations.
