Dassian Contracts and Project Billing Overview

Dassian Contract and Project Billing (CPB) is essential for government contractors and service provider firms to satisfy DCAA compliance and audit criteria.   It easily manages the most complex contract types offering insight into key contract performance metrics as well as automating the critical and complex billing processes needed by today's government contractor and service provider firms.  CPB compliments the capability of SAP Resource Related Billing to manage project-based billing, government contracting requirements and DCAA compliance.

Dassian CPB automates the invoicing of cost plus, time and material and fixed price contracts per the Federal Acquisition Regulation. No more waiting around to single thread your invoice runs. With Dassian GPB and SAP, invoicing is multi-threaded, real-time, and automated. Most importantly, all invoices have DCAA audit reporting with drill down capability into each cost transaction. Contract performance reporting and project status reports provide insight into the overall status of each project and sends alerts when actions are needed. Your business processes run smoothly and everything is accounted for correctly.
