WAWF Automation Software
The Department of Defense (DoD) requires that contractors who supply goods or services under a contract that contains clause 252.246-7000 of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to submit Material Inspection and Receiving Report (MIRR), traditionally called a DD250 or DD250 Form. This form is essentially an invoicing instrument used to record the delivery of goods or services, records pertinent information about the supplies or services, including contract information, delivery date and billing amounts, to name a few.
With the advent of Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) the submission of DD250s must occur electronically, with few exeptions. Contractors may use the government's web application or use a WAWF automation system such as MIL-Comply to create and submit electronic data interchange (EDI) transactions. WAWF is the government's web-based system for accepting, processing and distributing the DD250. In cases where a Receiving Report is not required (e.g. Fast Pay), the government also uses WAWF to process invoices.
WAWF offers contractors a number of benefits. The system eliminates document distribution mailing times and improves the accuracy of submissions. Most importantly, contractors using the WAWF system receive timely payments for their services. In the past, both contractors and the government processed DD250s manually. Manual completion, processing and archiving made the submission, storage and retrieval of multiple reports a difficult process. Advances in technology have made electronic processing a cross-industry standard, and today, the electronic submission of the Receiving Report is required in almost all cases.
The DoD Unique Identifier (UID) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) mandates require that contractors submit shipment data electronically to the WAWF system. Any more than a few RFID-tagged UIDs in a shipment create a challenge that specialized software is designed to overcome. Mil-Pac’s MIL-Comply software integrates key features to help you get the job done quickly and accurately.
Mil-Pac products, such as MIL-Comply Shipper, support traditional DFARS-compliant DD250 forms that can also be submitted electronically to WAWF. A specialized WAWF version of the DD250 (WA250) includes unique fields that simplify preparation of WAWF Receiving Reports, Invoices and Combos. Both forms fully support UID submission and can automate Mil-Std-129 labeling, including UID and RFID. Intrinsic address and parts databases makes completing forms with common deliverables a snap with our easy to use intuitive software.
