Navy tests automated system to process checks

The Naval Supply Systems Command has launched a prototype system that automatically processes paper checks and deducts money from the account the note is drawn on.

The Military Paper Check Conversion prototype uses scanning technology to eliminate the manual work associated with processing checks, according to a NAVSUP release. The system is in use at 22 of 29 sites at sea and on shore. It reduces the time needed to clear checks from two weeks to as little as 24 hours, officials said.

MPCC is a joint initiative with NAVSUP's Disbursing Division, the Treasury Department's Financial Management Service, Combined Fleet Forces Command, Defense Finance and Accounting Service and Marine Corps.

'MPCC will enhance the quality of life for our sailors and greatly improve our disbursing processes at sea and ashore,' said Rear Adm. Justin D. McCarthy, commander, NAVSUP, in a statement. 'This pilot program is a significant part of NAVSUP's ongoing effort to transform this enterprise by improving our business practices that support our warfighters.'

The prototype program will last one year.
