United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), DoD.




DOD has issued draft business rules for the electronic payment of Nontemporary Storage (NTS) invoices in the Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR) Part IV (DTR 4500.9R). This process proposes mandatory use of the DOD Third Party Payment System (TPPS) as the transaction and payment system for all NTS Transportation Service Providers (TSP). Implementation of electronic payments for NTS at all Military Services and Coast Guard installations is the goal of the Defense Personal Property Program (DP3). The initial rollout of the TPPS and the electronic payment process for NTS is scheduled for August, 2011.

Request comments be submitted in the identified matrix-format posted with the business rules. In furtherance of DOD's goal to develop and implement an efficient personal property program, Electronic Billing and Payment Business Rules were developed by the Military Services, DFAS and SDDC. In addition, the proposed electronic billing processes will compliment the future implementation of the Defense Personal Property Program (DP3) Phase III NTS capabilities within the Defense Personal Property System (DPS). The proposed NTS TPPS business rules are available for review on the USTRANSCOM Web site at​dtr/​part-iv/​nts.cfm.

Any subsequent modification(s) to the business rules beyond the above stated changes will be published in the Federal Register and incorporated into the Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR) Part IV (DTR 4500.9R). These program requirements do not impose a legal requirement, obligation, sanction or penalty on the public sector, and will not have an economic impact of $100 million or more.
