Engineering, System Engineering, and Process Engineering Support (FA 3.2)JPI’s team member, Deloitte, has provided end-to-end support to Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command for the Navy Enterprise Resource Planning Program that has encompassed leading the design, development, testing, implementation, and support of the financial solution. Deloitte provided services to the Navy ERP Program starting from requirements gathering, to providing technical analysis of the possible solutions, to designing and deploying the solution, and sustainment. Deloitte employed processes and methodologies to select the appropriate SAP compatible applications and its supporting hardware. Deloitte has also provided development and programming support to both system modifications and upgrades. This has involved extensive planning, designing, coding, testing, and integration with the 53 systems that interface with this Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solution. In the early phases of this program, Deloitte assisted the Government in its choice to use the SAP solution, which has the benefit of requiring less effort and cost to upgrade as well as less effort and cost to patch and maintain. Deloitte uses ITIL, ChaRM, ASAP, and CMMI methodologies. Deloitte performed this work.System Design Documentation and Technical Data Support (FA 3.5)Deloitte provided end-to-end services to the Navy ERP Program starting from requirements gathering, to providing technical analysis of the possible solutions, to designing and deploying the solution, and sustainment. Deloitte created a software design specification to establish a common baseline for business processes and functionality to be delivery by ERP and to capture the functional requirements which are composed of SAP ECC 5.0 and over 70+ supporting SAP software and tools (e.g., Microsoft SharePoint, Dimensions, Mercury Quality Center, etc.). During the requirements gathering process, Deloitte worked to fill in the gaps in business processes and to coordinate changes based on organizational structure shifts, which were especially significant within the maintenance community. Deloitte worked closely with the system owners to create the design documentation for the system interfaces for both inbound and outbound information processing. These are defined in 112 interface Functional Design Specifications (FDS). FDS’s are further decomposed into 536 individual Information Exchange Requirements (IER) that are documented in the Navy ERP Architecture, System View (SV-6). Deloitte developed and currently manages the data structures for all 230 system interfaces and master data components used by the Navy ERP. Deloitte also currently manages the production environment using SAP NetWeaver, which is an integrated technology computing platform that SAP markets as a SOA.The system utilizes the IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, which, as an approved SAP vendor, has built-in connections between the two products. There is a signed Interface Control Agreement (ICA) between the Navy ERP and each of the systems that define requirements and other information. This allows for data to be exchanged and provides a required format, as well as any special information assurance requirements, points of contact, and testing support requirements. Deloitte works with the owners of these systems (e.g., the DON commands, the other Services, and the DLA) to execute the ICA and manages the relationships should any issues arise. Deloitte performed this work.Software Engineering, Development, Programming, and Network Support (FA 3.6)JPI developed the Recovery Act High Performance Green Building (HPGB) Database Online (RAHD Online), a web-based tool for collecting, consolidating, and reviewing HPGB project information and documents containing that information in a secure and accessible manner. By serving as a centralized data-collection tool for a project’s sustainability information, RAHD Online allows our US General Services Administration (GSA) client to deliver projects on schedule, on budget, and on green. RAHD Online simplifies the access to HPGB project information for a wide group of stakeholders including GSA Project Managers, Regional Recovery Executives, Zone Executives, and the Recovery PMO. The system contains a JPI developed built-in workflow logic which allows project information records to be submitted through different stages of review, while also generating emails to alert each review tier that the record has been submitted for Minimum Performance Criteria (MPC) Compliance Reviews; additionally, RAHD Online tracks all workflow moves and changes to MPC statuses, allowing for a fully paperless review and auditing process. JPI performed this work.Configuration Management (CM) Support (FA 3.10)The JPI Team provides configuration management support to GSA’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) service center. JPI, hosts the service center to support internal and external customers of the ARRA PMO. Under this task, JPI develops and maintains configuration documentation in conjunction with the PMO. Through the service center, JPI addresses questions and maintains tracking for all requests received. Those questions or requests are deposited in a knowledge base that allows for a quick response to already answered questions. They are also aligned to configuration documentation to provide the ARRA PMO with an overall configuration baseline or configuration management database (CMDB). All of these activities are supported in JPI’s ePMO tool suite. The use of ePMO as a configuration repository allows for rapid and easy design of reports and also streamlines the consolidation of data from disparate financial and inventory systems. JPI performed this work.Information System (IS) Development, Information Assurance (IA), and Information Technology (IT) Support (FA 3.12)JPI’s Suite of Planning Tools project has taken project management tools such as the Project Management Plan (PMP), Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI), Acquisition Plans, Charter, and Prospectus Builder and moved them from the Domino platform to the GSA instance of Salesforce.com. JPI utilized a five person development team of which members are fully certified in both Lotus Notes / Domino and Salesforce to ensure the transition was technically sound and quick. Much of the quantitative data in the Suite of Planning Tools originated in other PBS enterprise systems (e.g., Oracle and SQL Server) and was pulled on a nightly and weekly basis. JPI provided support of the Suite of Planning Tools Help Desk and Issue Tracking Center and integrated the Help Desk tracking system with system online help updates.Under various task orders issued to JPI, numerous web-based tools and enhancements were developed for the Project Information Portal (PIP) and Suite of Planning Tools projects, including:
- TBRR / OBRR builds to support development;
- Continual development and integration with Oracle-based GSA systems, including Capital Projects and the Financial Management Information System (FMIS);
- J2EE applications for all reporting and navigation for the PIP, which allowed for more user access and faster complex reporting;
- J2EE-based EVM graphical toolset;
- All data tables and transfer methods for the PIP and the Suite of Planning Tools to Business Intelligence (BI) delivery;
- A LEED scorecard for building projects; LEED tracking and compliance reports; a customer facing Versatile Internet Platform (VIP) site that allows individual registration and subscription to updates; and
- Full user registration, re-registration, and help desk services.
