Contract Management

Dassian Contract Flow Down

When your procurement or manufacturing focus is against a particular contract or project, some or all of the information associated with the contract or project must flow down to sub-contractors, vendors, and the shop floor.   Government contractors are required to flow down information and contract clauses throughout the supply chain per the flow down regulations.

In addition, manufacturers often receive priority rated orders and must realign supply to be compliant with DPAS and AOG, hence it is imperative to have the customer contract specific data associated with your production/purchase orders at your fingertips.

Dassian Contract Flow Down allows you to capture the necessary contract information and enables the automated flow down of this information throughout your organization, shop floor, and to your vendors while providing the needed reporting for government audits.

"From a change management perspective, users readily adopted the Dassian flow down solution as they are comfortable with the SAP interface.  The Dassian flow down solution resides within SAP, just like another ERP module such as purchasing or planning.   This made it easier for my team to implement and customize the solution further to incorporate flow down for schedule agreements functionality as well as integrate it with SAP SNC." 
Sanaa Whese, IT Program Manager


"With the new solution in place, the most recent JDAS audits have found no violations with contract flow down in our systems while allowing our buyers and planners to focus more on their customers and less on manually sending flow down information to subcontractors and vendors." 
Meka Young, JDAS former Purchasing Manager & Current Planning Manager
