17004 Implementation of FAR Case 2012-023, FAR 4.605(e) Activity Address Codes (AAC) Changes. Implement the six-character Activity Address Codes (AAC). Effective on 04/01/2016, the FPDS-NG will begin to use the FPDW DoDAAD Web Service to ingest and manage the Civilian and DoD Activity Address Code. Changes in FPDS will include the following:

• FPDS-NG no longer allows Civilian Agencies to enter Offices directly into FPDS-NG.

• The source of the AACs for Civilian and DoD Agencies is the Department of Defense Activity Address Directory (DoDAAD), which is managed by DLA.

• FPDS-NG pulls AAC information through a Web Service subscription established with DoDAAD.

• The Common Government-wide Accounting Classification (CGAC) and Major Command received from DoDAAD for an AAC is used to determine the Department/Agency to place the AAC within.

• Major Command may be referred to as ‘Majcom’, or ‘Maj_command’.

• All Civilian Offices with an AAC as the Office ID have a start date of ‘04/01/2016’.

• All existing Civilian Contracting and Funding Offices which were not end-dated, have been end-dated with a date of ‘03/31/2016’.

• FPDS-NG no longer allows the Civilian Agency System Administrators to add Contracting or Funding Offices from the ‘Government Office Selection’ screen.

• DoD ‘Government Office Selection’ screen and Hierarchy management has not been changed.

• The 'New' button was grayed out from the ‘Government Office Selection’ screen.

• All fields on the ‘Government Office’ screen except 'Region Code' and 'Funding Office End Date' have been disabled and grayed out for Civilian users.

• Civilian System Administrators shall manage AAC Funding Office End Date through the Government Office Screen in FPDS-NG.

• FPDS-NG will only apply a Civilian or DoD Funding Office End Date if a ‘Delete’ Action is received from the DoDAAD interface, when the Funding Office exists, and is currently active.

• FPDS-NG has grayed out all fields for Civilian Offices with a Start Date before 04/01/2016.
