To assist in completion of these duties, the Office of Financial Management uses Enterprise Service Center Procurement Request Information System Management (ESC PRISM), which is a customized Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) procurement system. ESC PRISM enables acquisition professionals to efficiently and effectively complete federal acquisition tasks in a compliant way from planning through closeout.
