The GCSS-Army program is an Enterprise Resource Planning program begun in 2003. Following the blueprinting, development and testing phases, the US Army Test and Evaluation Command conducted Operational Assessments in 2007 and 2010, followed by the Initial Operational Test and Evaluation in 2011 and Lead Site Verification Tests in 2012. In December 2012, the Milestone Decision Authority granted the full deployment decision for the first increment of GCSS-Army, which included warehouse, ground maintenance, property accountability, unit supply and tactical financial management functionality. From February 2013 through 2017, the full system deployment took place in all Army components, world-wide, reaching over 100,000 users. While the GCSS-Army program has transitioned sustainment of the Baseline solution to the Army Shared Services Center, the Product Office is delivering new capability with the development, testing and deployment of an Aviation Logistics solution, as well extending the baseline to support Army Prepositioned Stocks and Medical Logistics. In spite of the challenges encountered due to COVID-19 restrictions, the program has succeeded in delivering crucial capabilities to the tactical Army. The Product Office stands ready support the warfighter and the Army’s modernization efforts.
