President Gore Will Moderate Live Satellite Broadcast on January
Defense Contract Management Command (DFAS) is working aggressively
to increase the use of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), and is
supporting other Defense organizations in the use of other EDI invoicing
methods for public vouchers and commercial invoices. DFAS recently
unveiled the Web Invoicing System. WInS allows contractors to sign
on to a secure web page, enter the invoice data, and send it on
your community ready for the 21st Century? Are you connecting workers,
jobs, and training for 21st Century skills? Vice President Gore
will moderate the National Summit on 21st Century Skills for 21st
Century Jobs on January 12. This live satellite broadcast is set
for 1:30 - 3:00 PM EST. We invite business, labor, education, government
and local community leaders to sponsor a down link location and
to register online. We will also announce plans for a cybercast
on this website. Pass the word!
