GFEBS: Enhance Performance with PMADS

  • GFEBS: What is it?

    The General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS) is an Army financial asset management and accounting tool used by the Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve to standardize business processes.  Over 52,000 end users in 227 locations use GFEBS to manage army acquisition, finances and contracts.  GFEBS replaced the Standard Finance System (STANFINS) and the Standard Operations and Maintenance Army Research and Development System (SOMARDS).

  • GFEBS: Why is it Important?

    Army Leadership sought greater visibility of operational and contracting activities at all levels in the organization.  They wanted the ability to maintain accurate cost data and to improve forecasting.  GFEBS was designed to evolve the Army from a spending culture to position of pro-active cost management.

  • PMADS: Added Value for GFEBS

    PMADS enhances and clarifies GFEBS transactions and reports by providing a completely centralized and synchronized data set to every user throughout the cradle-to-grave acquisition process.
