Class Deviation 2012-O0011
Update to Accelerated Payments to Small Businesses

This class deviation supersedes Class Deviation 2012-O0006 dated May 7, 2012. Effective immediately, the following DoD entitlement and payment systems are processing all payments to small business concerns in accordance with Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 232.903 and 232.906:

  • Transportation Financial Management System (TFMS)
  • Corps of Engineers Financial Management System (CEFMS)
  • Automated Voucher Examining and Disbursement System (AVEDS);
  • Fuels Automated System (FAS);
  • Standard Automated Voucher Examination System (SAVES); and
  • Mechanization of Contract Administration Services (MOCAS) System.

The Department of Defense (DoD) revised DFARS 232.903 and 232.906 to assist small business concerns by paying them as quickly as possible after receipt of an invoice and all proper documentation. DoD is using a phased implementation approach because all DoD entitlement and payment systems require modification to accommodate the accelerated payments.

The U.S. Army, Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, has completed modifications to TFMS and its payment processes to provide for these accelerated payments. We will update this class deviation as each of the remaining DoD Component systems acquires the capability to perform the accelerated payment process.

This class deviation remains in effect until superseded or rescinded.
