Mobile App icon    The Mobile App 2.0 is Here! 

The IPPS-A human resources mobile application (app) allows Soldiers to access their personnel records using a mobile phone or tablet. The app provides Soldiers with self-service access to Army personnel records without requiring a common access card (CAC) for authentication and has the same level of sophistication and security that secure banking and personal service apps have today. Through the app, self-service transactions — including trouble tickets — are automated, paper-free and transparent from initiation to approval. The app is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play Store.

Users can also CAC login into the app, allowing HR Professionals and Commanders to approve anywhere at anytime!

CAC Access by Manager/HR Professional

1. Review and approve transactions
2. Non self-service/elevated user access

The IPPS-A app is the first in the Army to allow mobile access to an Army human resources system, with comparable commercial technology.

  • Soldiers have the flexibility to operate on the move, accessing their personnel records on a smartphone or tablet using their DS Logon.
  • Soldiers can submit help inquiries, request updates to their record, and monitor the status of their personnel actions through the app without an in-person trip to a G1/S1 shop.
  • Commanders and HR Professionals can access their elevated roles on a DoD smartphone or using a CAC reader on a personal device, allowing them to review and approve transactions without being at their desk or work station.
  • Transactions are automated, paper-free and trackable from initiation to approval — providing a level of transparency like never before.
  • Data is secured over a commercial network with the same level of sophistication that secure banking and personal service apps have today.
  • IPPS-A is part of the Army’s efforts to improve its date posture, informing the Army Data Plan to enable data-driven decisions.
