Part of the Transportation Payment Reengineering effort, Syncada® is an Internet-based transportation payment system provided by US Bank. Syncada® allows Department of Navy (DON) Transportation Officers (TOs) to:
- Collaboratively store shipment, catalog, buyers, sellers, and pricing information
- Electronically submit invoices
- Access automated review of each invoice before payment is made
- Collaboratively resolve invoice exceptions
- Make electronic payments and receive credits
- Automatically link payments and receipts to G/L systems
- Gain real time visibility to operations, logistics and financial information
The Naval Supply Systems Command Logistics Operations Center (NAVSUP LOC). serves as the Navy Component Program Manager, supporting the day-to-day operations of the Navy transportation program. The Department of the Navy Office of Financial Operations (FMO) assists the NAVSUP LOC with the financial management aspects of Syncada®.
HQMC-RFL serves as the Syncada® Program Manager for the Marine Corps supporting the day-to-day operations of the Marine Corps Syncada® program. To access the Marine Corps Syncada® instruction or for other Marine Corps specific information, contact the local Transportation Officer.
The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) has oversight of the DoD's transportation program. It is responsible for DoD-level policy, program metrics and automated system implementation progress.
The Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) (formerly Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC)) has joint responsibility for Syncada® use. SDDC also provides information for the Family First program. (Provides global surface deployment command and control and distribution operations to meet National Security objectives in peace and war.)
In order to meet the requirements set forth by Management Reform Memorandum # 15, DoD implemented US Bank's commercial system Syncada®. This automated access system allows Transportation Officers (TO) to review their transportation charges online. Once implementation is complete, Syncada® will automatically obligate appropriate funds for each shipment and allow TOs to electronically certify their statements for electronic payment. The fully implemented Syncada® system will facilitate increased oversight, assist with timely obligations and reduce invoice time-to-payment.
To use the Navy Syncada®, you must have a User Name and Password with registration available from the Syncada® login page. Of note: the Syncada® site contains useful training materials for the funds manager Syncada® user.
