Electronic Construction Management System (eCMS)

NAVFAC eCMS is a web-based, enterprise project collaboration tool to improve post-award management of schedules, RFIs, designs, and submittals.
  • Allows collaboration via web-site (only web browser, internet, and digital ID)
  • Provides basic browser-based tools (i.e. communications, daily reports, and dashboards)

NAVFAC eCMS is intended for GOV and KTR users associated with a project (provided at no cost to the KTR or other users).
  • Reduces number of "hard" copies (i.e. paper media) needed on the project.
  • Allows tracking of documents.
  • Provides functionality on portable devices.
  • Allows archiving and mass download of the project to a zip file.
  • Provides data exchange with existing NAVFAC systems (i.e. ieFACMAN)

Update (05 October 23): 

  • NAVFAC recently implemented important security upgrades for the eCMS system. Following the implementation, we have received reports from some users that they are experiencing issues accessing eCMS or are unable to access eCMS at all.
    The eCMS Team is aware of the issues and is working hard to resolve them as quickly as possible.
    One problem users encounter is that the eCMS user is not receiving the One-Time-Password (OTP) email message. There are only three possible reasons for this:
    • The email address in eCMS is incorrect.
    • The email message is going to the user’s Junk Mail.
    • The email message is being filtered by the user’s company firewall.
  • If this is the issue you are encountering, please see if one of the three situations identified above is applicable. If the email address is incorrect then report the issue as described below. The other two situations must be resolved by you and / or your company.
  •  If you are encountering access issues and DO HAVE access to the NAVFAC STS IT Ticketing system, please report the issue using the STS system (see below for requested information); If you DO NOT have access to the NAVFAC STS IT Ticketing System, please report the issue to NAVFAC at NITCOPSWATCH@US.NAVY.MIL.
  • When reporting the issue, please help us by including the following information:
    • What web browser you are using (i.e., Firefox, Chrome, etc.).
    • The steps you are following to try to log in to eCMS (please include a full-screen screen capture for each step so we can see exactly what is happening).
    • Your eMail address.
  • Please indicate whether your access issues are consistent or inconsistent (i.e., when did the issue start and have you been having the issue 100% of the time in the past 2 weeks?).

If you have any questions, please contact the COR / CM for your project.

Tips and tricks

  • If issues arise with the use of eCMS please contact the COR/CM.  If the issue is unable to be resolved it should be addressed with the local FEC representative (eCMS POCs). If they cannot help resolve, see the Get Help Page for instructions on how to elevate issues NITC Ops Watch via STS or 
Inputting Data:
  • For inputting information into eCMS: if the user defined field has a magnifying glass, you must use the magnifying glass! 
    • This will open up a Pick List of items to choose from - if you do not select from this pick list eCMS will deliver an error 
Searching in eCMS:
  • When searching in eCMS, wrap your search in "%" to ensure a more complete, robust search
    • Example %1234567% when searching for project code 1234567
Common eCMS Errors:
  • If you experience an eCMS error or unexpected eCMS functionality, you can often times fix this by clearing your cache/cookies and restarting your browser
  • Notes can currently be toggled between Public and Private
    • Public: can be seen by both KTR & GOV users
    • Private: can only be seen by GOV users
  • Private notes made by a KTR will not function properly, they will still be visible by GOV users
Email Preferences:
  • There are 2 separate areas where email notification preferences can be edited: 
    • Global email settings
      • Global email settings can be accessed by selecting little blue user icon in the upper right hand side of the screen. Once that window loads, there will be a tab for "E-mail Notifications" where the user's email preferences are editable.
    • Project specific email settings
      • These settings are only editable by the COR on the project. The COR can go into the Project Contact Directory and select the user for which they would like to edit the email preferences for. Once selected, there will be a tab for "E-mail Notifications" where the user's email preferences are editable.
  • The Global email settings and the project specific email settings must be aligned in their configurations to receive email notifications from eCMS
