Corporate Property Automated Information System (CPAIS)

CPAIS serves as the USDA subsidiary ledger for owned real property and the primary inventory reporting and portfolio management tool for all real property. CPAIS will maintain statistical elements necessary to track and manage owned real property, leased property, General Services Administration (GSA) assignments, and interagency agreements. CPAIS will record the acquisition, depreciation, and disposal of a real property asset, while the corporate financial system and the procurement subsidiary systems (e.g., the Integrated Acquisition System and the Purchase Order System) will continue to generate the financial transactions associated with the acquisition and use of real property. CPAIS will also track specific data elements necessary to meet external mandatory reporting requirements and ad hoc query requirements. CPAIS will interface with GSA STAR Web site and electronically file the Federal Real Property Profile (FRPP).

GSA's Travel Management Center (TMC) contracts have no renewal options and began expiring December 31, 2004. USDA and EDS developed a travel bridge solution that was approved on November 29, 2004. On January 1, 2005, USDA began utilizing the travel bridge solution for expiring TMC contracts. Simply put, the bridge solution is a matter of changing travel agents.
