IPPS-A is a Web-based HR system that provides integrated personnel and pay capabilities and a comprehensive HR record for all Soldiers in each Component. Once IPPS-A is fully deployed, the system will enable HR transactions to automatically trigger Soldier pay. In addition, Soldiers will have CAC access to their own personal information 24 hours a day via the IPPS-A Self-Service Web Portal.
IPPS-A’s ability to combine personnel and pay functions (e.g., a promotion or call to Active Duty) will address current inefficiencies caused by complex interfaces among more than 40 “stove-piped” HR systems. As a result, IPPS-A will leave fewer opportunities for error and will become the authoritative and comprehensive source of Army personnel and pay information.
