Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
EDI is the computer to computer exchange of routine business information in a standard format. Working with the contracting community, DFAS has implemented EDI transactions to support commercial pay and accounting processes. These EDI transaction sets eliminate the need to re-enter critical data in commercial pay systems and accounting systems. Implementing EDI invoicing capability, coupled with increased use of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), have been a major factor in decreasing errors and improving payment processing. Additional areas where EDI has been implemented are: Garnishments, Grants, Purchase Card, Travel, Transportation and Medical Logistics.
