Defense Agencies Initiative (DAI)


Program Description

The Defense Agencies Initiative (DAI) is a Department of Defense (DoD) enterprise initiative that will modernize and transform the financial management capabilities of the Defense Agencies. DAI is not an update of legacy systems, but an implementation of integrated financial management capabilities that will subsume many systems and standardize business processes. DAI as a concept has existed in DoD for a decade, with the business case becoming stronger and the need more urgent as Defense Agencies have been unable to upgrade existing systems or effectively participate in larger financial management transformation efforts managed by the services. The Defense Agencies are committed to leveraging their resources and talents to build an integrated system that supports standardized processes and proves that DoD is capable of using a single architecture and foundation to support multiple, diverse components.
