Transforming Business at NMLC
Tell us a little about your project and role at the Naval Medical Logistics Command.
I provide functional, technical, and systematic support for the Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) eBusiness suite at the Naval Medical Logistics Command (NMLC). Our team helps vendors with registration and invoice submission, and we grant access to Government personnel for acceptance and certification of invoices. We also provide training based on Navy Medicine requirements and processes.
How do you feel like UCS has encouraged and fostered your career?
I very much enjoy working with everyone at UCS. The other three employees that I work directly with have a combined total of 34 years with the company, which I feel speaks volumes about both UCS and the loyalty of its employees.
How have you modeled “intelligence at work” for your client?
WAWF – now called Invoice, Receipt, Acceptance, and Property Transfer (iRAPT) – was implemented as a way to improve the DoD invoicing process. These improvements were made to increase document visibility for vendors and Government personnel, decrease paper invoices, and reduce interest penalties across the DoD.
Over the past 13 years, UCS has assisted the Navy with the implementation of WAWF such that 97% of all Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) invoices are being processed via WAWF/iRAPT. Since implementation of WAWF/iRAPT, interest penalties paid have dramatically decreased each year – saving the Navy significant time, money, and resources.
