This synopsis is issued for informational and planning purposes only. United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) is conducting market research and desires input from industry to help in requirements planning. The information requested by this synopsis will be used within USTRANSCOM to facilitate decision making and will not be disclosed outside the agency. Please note that USTRANSCOM will NOT be responsible for any costs incurred by interested parties in responding to this request for information.

The United States Transportation Command's (USTRANSCOM) designation as the Distribution Process Owner (DPO) is to oversee the overall effectiveness, efficiency, and alignment of DOD-wide distribution activities, including force projection, sustainment, and redeployment / retrograde operations. USTRANSCOM works in close cooperation with the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) and their Implementing Agencies (IAs), to enhance the overall flow of billing information, received from a number of logistic systems providing transportation data elements, to the billing of those data elements to the proper Foreign Military Sales (FMS) or Pseudo FMS cases. DSCA, through IAs, utilize Transportation Account Codes (TACs), which identify lines of accounting, which allow for the proper allocation of transportation charges to various FMS and PFMS cases. This usage identifies the billed amounts that USTRANSCOM Transportation Component Commands (TCCs) Air Mobility Command (AMC), Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) and Military Sealift Command (MSC) bill for transportation services rendered. Process improvements are needed to improve transportation expenditures stewardship through the issuance of TACs and other transportation related data elements, such as Transportation Control Numbers (TCNs), in support of transportation movements associated to FMS or PFMS cases.

The contractor shall provide USTRANSCOM with analysis of logistics information entering into TCC billing systems that support the billing of FMS and PFMS case freight moving through the Defense Transportation System. The specific tasks are:

Task Area 1: Contract Level and Task Order Management
Task Area 2: Analysis of Data
Task Area 3: Technical Recommendations
