Customer Support Resources for Users

IPPS-A users may require additional time and assistance to learn how to fully utilize IPPS-A.

The transition from antiquated, legacy human resources (HR) systems to IPPS-A is a complicated process.

Therefore, IPPS-A has built robust customer support resources to assist every user with the transition to the Army’s new human resources and talent management system.
