Business Applications Solution (BAS)

Welcome to the BAS Program!

The BAS program is a U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) modernization initiative to deploy an integrated suite of financial and business management applications in support of our mission. 

The Secretary of Commerce identified BAS as one of the top Departmental priorities. The objectives include implementing and integrating a suite of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) business systems, enterprise data warehouse (EDW) and business intelligence (BI) reporting solution, and system interfaces in a hosted environment. The BAS Program will continue the ongoing emphasis on achieving organizational excellence and outstanding customer service for the Department.

  • Core Financial Management (including loans, financial statements, and interfaces)
