Introduction travel 101 chapter 5

  1. 1. Chapter #5 Tools of the Trade
  2. 2. Systems used in Travel Windows Integrated Automated Travel System - (WinIATS) The Windows Integrated Automated Travel System (WinIATS) is used throughout the Department of Defense and other civilian agencies to establish all travel documentation, computations, accounting interfaces, federal tax reporting, and payment by check or electronic funds transfer. It is a system than runs on multiple platforms and services military and civilian employees around the world. It is a versatile system that can be used in any situation, including wartime such as Desert Storm and the current activities in Iraq. The system includes all the rules promulgated in the Joint Federal Travel Regulation (JFTR) Volume I, Joint Travel Regulation (JTR) Volume II, and the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR). Operational Data Store (ODS) “ Is a useful tool in querying many data elements. ODS is a single data base interfacing information for entitlement transactions, payment information and accounting information. It includes all such transactions made by the Deputy Director for Central Disbursing (DDCD), DFAS Columbus and other DFAS centers. Data is stored at the transaction level.” Defense Joint Military Pay System (DJMS) DFAS operates military pay functions at central sites in Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Denver for the Army, Navy, and Air Force. DFAS consolidated the Army, Navy, and Air Force military pay management functions within DJMS. Marine Corps' Active and Reserve military pay accounts are handled in the stand-alone Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS), implemented in December 1994. The Marine Corps' pay accounts will not be folded into DJMS because MCTFS already features a combined pay and personnel system. DJMS is currently in operation at 100 Army sites, 80 Air Force sites, 60 Navy sites, and 3 DFAS centers. A total of 2.2 million military pay accounts are on DJMS-Active Component (DJMS-AC) or DJMS-Reserve Component (DJMS-RC).
  3. 3. Systems used in Travel (Continued) Corporate Electronic Document Management System (CEDMS) Provides DFAS with a web-based application to remotely scan all types of documents, verify the quality of images, transmit them to a central repository, and retrieve image documents using full text search or specific index search and retrieval. CEDMS increases operational efficiencies, strengthens internal controls, reduces costs, maximizes office space, and ensures more organized Base Re-alignment and Closure workload transfers by eliminating paper files.
  4. 4. Web Sites used by Travel Pay Operations Oanda Currency Converter http://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/ (This is a commercial currency conversion site.

Each year, under the Airline City-Pairs program, the GSA Federal Supply Service awards contracts for air transportation for travelers on official GOV’T travel. The contracts are awarded competitively based on the best overall value to the GOV’T. The best value decision is based on considerations of the type, distribution and number of flights, the average flight time, and the offered price.
