What is OAGIS?

OAGIS is an XML Interoperability standard and data model provided by the Open Access Group, supporting the electronic exchange of data, especially business documents. The name comes from the Open Access Group Integration Specification.

Significant users of OAGIS include the UK Ministry of Defence (the MOD) for Supplier Procurement, and many large defence contractors in the UK, USA and Europe.

If your company needs to exchange OAGIS data with your trading partners but does not have the functionality to translate to and from OAGIS, we can help. We can convert the data between OAGIS and other formats such as EDIFACTTRADACOMS, any other XML format or a non EDI format such as CSV.

Many customers, including the MOD, are increasingly moving to Web Services for their data communications method, to ensure security of their systems. The MOD in particular are seeking to move all supplier B2B integration over to using outbound HTTPS REQUEST from MOD.

We can support Web Service (HTTP POST) communications to the MOD, where required, complying with the CP&F Supplier Connectivity Specification used by Defence Business Services (DBS), providing you as a supplier with a simpler communications method such as FTP.

The following Inbound Message-Type Based Endpoints are required by the MOD:-

  • GetList

  • Download

  • Delete

  • Upload

The following Message Types may be required to trade electronically with the MOD using the OAGIS format over the HTTPOST communications protocol.

  • Purchase Order

  • Purchase Order Change

  • Purchase Order Acknowledgement

  • Advanced Shipment Notice

  • Invoice
