Internet Based Purchasing System (IBPS)

The Internet Based Purchasing System (IBPS) is designed as the name implies, to operate over the World Wide Web utilizing Electronic Commerce Technologies. This creates a standardized interactive web site providing a complete purchasing and contract management support system for Air Force activities that operate using Nonappropriated Funds (NAF).
