Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Supplier Self-Services (SUS); OMB Control Number 0702-TBD.
Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement via SUS is necessary to reduce the amount and complexity of required input by vendors that manually enter invoice data into Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) (not those utilizing Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). By pre-populating fields with accurate and up-to-date contract information, vendors are required to input significantly less data. Additionally, SUS simultaneously performs a front-end validation of submitted data, thus ensuring less manual intervention and fewer interest penalties incurred by the government.
Affected Public: Businesses (Federal Vendors).
Annual Burden Hours: 640.
Number of Respondents: 533.
Responses per Respondent: 12.
Average Burden per Response: 6 minutes.
Frequency: On occasion.
SUS leverages a DoD portal developed by WAWF known as “OneStop” that facilitates WAWF's interaction with ERPs. Respondents are vendors that continue to utilize WAWF as the mandated single point of entry and for viewing historical records, but are routed seamlessly to the SUS module for invoice data entry referencing the ERP contract data.
