Corporate Property Automated Information System (CPAIS)
CPAIS serves as the USDA subsidiary ledger for owned real property and the primary inventory reporting and portfolio management tool for all real property. CPAIS will maintain data elements necessary to track and manage owned real property, leased property, General Services Administration (GSA) assignments, and inter-agency agreements. CPAIS will record the acquisition, depreciation, and disposal of a real property asset, while the corporate financial system and the procurement subsidiary systems will continue to generate the financial transactions associated with the acquisition and use of real property. CPAIS will also track specific data elements necessary to meet external mandatory reporting requirements and ad hoc query requirements. CPAIS will interface with the GSA STAR Web site, and electronically file the Federal Real Property Profile (FRPP).
