GFEBS BACKGROUND
GFEBS is my number one priority following the demands and needs
of our organizations and soldiers during wartime.
- LTG Edgar E. Stanton III
 General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS) is a decision
support tool that will provide reliable data to better enable the Army
leadership to make decisions in support of the Warfighter.
 GFEBS will:
 Include data that has never been available to US Army commanders and
managers
 Supply standardized and real-time financial, asset and accounting data and
information
 GFEBS is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution being built
on SAP (Systems Application Products), a commercial-off-the-shelf
(COTS) financial management system
