DEFENSE PERSONAL PROPERTY SYSTEM (DPS) RATE FILING USER GUIDE – TSP EDITION

January 22, 2020

The below information on potential issues with filing bulk rates is provided by Elmer Storck who received the information today from USTC.

 

  • With the new release of the new rates module tab, TSPs must have their bulk rate files located where the entire path does not exceed 40 characters.  For example, it cannot be embedded into multiple folders exceeding 40 characters.  For example, something like, G:/Marketing/2020info/DHHG Rate Filing/Round1 Rates/SCAC_Rd1.csv.
  • If you do, you get an error message on exceeding 40 characters.
  • It was also discovered that if the file of data elements were not in CAPS, you could receive another error message.  Based on some receiving that error message this morning, USTC was fixing this issue.  For your awareness, that error was creating error message #23. 
  • A new “Rates Workbench User Guide” is now available under the DPS tab: “Rates (New)”.  It is only available to TSP logins, but is attached for your review.

 

Based on some of these rate filing issues, we’ve requested to COL Gipson that rate filing be extended by one day.  We have not received information back from her at this point.
