Enterprise Program Management

Getting Started

It all starts with a conversation.

Let's talk about your organization's acquisition management.

SCHEDULE A PMADS BRIEFING

NMT will deliver a PMADS briefing to program leadership and acquisition stakeholders.  What's working well? And, more importantly, what isn't?

We can help move your organization from a spending culture to one that manages acquisitions efficiently and with forward-looking situational awareness.

We'll talk about your workforce and all of the user roles in your acquisition process.   We'll identify opportunities to spread the workload more evenly across the organization, to improve your data accuracy and to increase OPTEMPO.

PMADS isn't a cookie cutter approach.
We're not offering a one-size-fits all acquisition platform. PMADS is fully customized to your organization and your user roles, artifacts and operating procedure. You'll have a PMADS Implementation Specialist with you every step of the way.

Your PMADS Specialist gathers all data related to your program activities and map it to build a full functional integration of all programmatic activities. Using this data, PMADS is configured to make it possible for all users to collaborate from their individual program perspectives.

Each stakeholder gains access to the program information they need, in the form they need it and exactly when they need it.

PMADS' phased implementation involves your own team.. 
Your PMADS Specialist will guide your organization through a focused and low-impact 3-phased approach to PMADS implementation. Typical implementation is approximately 6 months.

Your PMADS Specialist forms an in-house team (whether Government or a contractor working on-site) for the most cost-efficient and effective training and implementation experience.

  • In-house staff have hands-on understanding of the organization's needs and culture
  • Training in-house staff minimizes the costs and time for implementation; they are equipped to deliver training to counterparts throughout the organization.
  • In-house staff typically remain with your organization over the long-term, laying the foundation for successful on-going collaboration and communication via PMADS.
  • Phase 1
  • Phase 2
  • Phase 3

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).
