WASHINGTON, DC (8 November 2023)-On 29 September 2023, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) with The Department of Defense’s Office of Industrial Base Policy as the sponsor, through its Manufacturing Capability Expansion and Investment Prioritization (MCEIP) office, awarded JRC to support its Enterprise Parts Management System (EPMS) project. The prototype project was awarded through the Strategic and Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted Systems (S²MARTS) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA). The OTA is a vehicle used by the Department of Defense focused on prototyping new technologies. The S2MARTS contracting process is managed by the National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL) consortium.
JRC will support the execution of the EPMS project contributing agile industrial capacities to enhance the production and management of microelectronic parts. JRC is honored to be supporting Military Service and defense program offices across the DoD through the advancement of the EPMS tool.
The Enterprise Parts Management System (EPMS) is a cloud-based enterprise-wide microelectronics parts management tool intended to enable parts management at program office levels across DoD throughout the entire parts lifecycle. EPMS will give DoD the ability to aggregate information on parts used in DoD systems and manage those parts at the enterprise level. (U.S. DoD, 2023)
