The Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army’s (IPPS-A) Release 3 build team reached another milestone in its development of the system with the conclusion of Product Level Testing on Sep. 30, 2020. Release 3, scheduled for fielding on Dec. 2021, will support over one million Soldiers in the Total Army, bringing together the Regular Army, Army National Guard, and the U.S. Army Reserve into one system.
The System Integrator completed build activities for all 37 functional epics, which are groupings of related functionality that serve as the framework for IPPS-A. Each feature within each epic was assessed by the System Integrator Test Team to verify required functionality was met before moving to the next phase of testing. This means that Release 3 is 100% built.
Since the most recent R3 update, System Integrators also showed their build work in the final conference room pilot (CRP) held Aug. 20, 2020. System Integrators are PeopleSoft experts who complete the configuration and development of the system.
