Octo Consulting Group today announced it has been awarded a five-year, $11 million contract with the U.S. Army to operate and maintain its Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced (PBUSE) enterprise software application. This system provides an efficient way to maintain accountable records for Government Assets and Total Asset Visibility. PBUSE is a custom, classified, enduring legacy system that integrates commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software to sustain Army and Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) property book accountability and unit-level logistics functionality. This includes real-time asset visibility, administrative adjustment reports, military standard requisitioning and issue procedures transactions, component management, and organizational and individual equipment records management.
With this win, Octo deepens its relationship with the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS), supporting the Product Lead Logistics Information Systems (PL LIS), and expands its software development and infrastructure business into another mission-critical defense business system. “We are ecstatic to be working with the Army on this project. We believe our modernization focus will greatly enhance the PBUSE system, which is a core mission system within the Army,” said Jim Vant, Octo’s Executive Vice President for Defense and Intelligence.
“We are thrilled the Army selected Octo for this work and to continue our growth within and support to the Army,” said Octo’s CEO Mehul Sanghani. “This represents an exciting foray into a new area of the Army and the Fort Lee community.” This win adds a Richmond office to Octo’s expanding national presence, which also includes Boston, St. Louis, Dayton, Ohio, and several offices in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area.
