413thCSB Leverages UTES during DTX

The Sandbox!  When you think of a sandbox do you have pleasant thoughts and memories of a childhood long gone, or are your impressions of an interactive environment with an array of scenario-based Army-wide exercises tailored to individual unit needs?  I hope that your thoughts are the later of the two, today’s Warriors demand adaptive and progressive training to keep their edge as the most significant fighting force ever.

The 413th Contracting Support Brigade commitment to real and relevant training shined during the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Disaster Training Exercise (DTX).  DTX is an annual capstone contracting readiness exercise that trains with the Fiscal Triad in preparation for contingency operations; however, this year incorporated the Ultimate Training Experience System (UTES), with assistance from the Financial Management School (FMS) after the suggestion from G-8 civilians.  UTES allowed for real-time collaboration of Procurement Desktop Defense (PD2), General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS), and Deployable Disbursing System (DDS), eliminating Purchase Orders (PO) for Standard Procurement System (SPS) Purchase Requests (PR).  LTC Thomas Buchholz, Deputy G-8 was quoted saying, “Overall, the UTES was a valuable asset for the fiscal triad, and we hope to incorporate it into other exercises in the Pacific.”  (2017)
UTES allowed for the accomplishment of this year's objectives to provide “hands-on” training with the entire Fiscal Triad ensuring continuity and proficiency; additionally, provide Financial Managers the opportunity to train core deployment support tasks.  The utilization of the UTES program allowed for all aspects of the contracting process, which meant for the first time PD2 and GFEBS were able to auto-populated most of the purchase orders.  Contracts were able to flow all the way from start to finish with no errors.  Please read the attached AAR or watch the full-length video interview for more insight on this past DTX.  (https://youtu.be/-a0N2FWCWCg

In Conclusion, commanders and trainers that leverage UTES web-based virtual environment empower Soldiers to train as they fight.  Relevant based Battle Drills all executing in real-time/live production delivers a training experience previously unattainable. The ability to simultaneously, across the room or globe, bring apparent relevance to the force. Join the UTES milBook Community of Interest (COI) to hear about highlights and insights.
