INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY APPROVAL SYSTEM (ITAS) WAIVER PROCESS
IMPORTANT: All IT purchases require an ITAS waiver regardless of cost.
If you have an existing APMS record matching IT purchase, follow the instructions below to create and route an ITAS waiver. If you do not have an existing APMS record, click here, for instructions on creating an APMS record.
- Get a quote for intended IT purchase through CHESS. If the required IT item is not available through CHESS for purchase/quote, create a Statement of Non-availability (SONA). Click here to view demo here.
- Go to https://chess.army.mil/Content/Page/SONA and create and route a SONA
- Once the SONA is approved, create an ITAS waiver in Army Portfolio Management System (APMS) located at https://cprobe.army.mil/enterprise-portal/web/apms/home (You must be on a NIPR computer or using VPN to access APMS)
- Create ITAS waiver and complete all required data fields. See screenshots and downloadable instructions below.
- Ensure line item data matches quote and attach SONA and purchase quote to ITAS waiver and route for approval
- Once ITAS is approved, attach ITAS waiver to Purchase Request or load to US Bank Access in credit card system
