Navy HR system cleared for launch

The Navy has received final permission from the Office of the Secretary of Defense to fully deploy the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System.

NSIPS recently passed an OSD Milestone III production decision. The next step is for developer Lockheed Martin Corp.'s Information Technology division in Seabrook, Md., to mass-produce, install and maintain the computer application at 530 sites worldwide, including 169 ships.

'NSIPS has been a long time coming, but the wait was definitely worth it. This becomes the first Navy program that integrates pay and personnel for the active duty and the naval reserve in a Web environment,' said Dennis Pigg, the Navy's acting program manager.

'It also paves the way for the Navy to move to the Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System,' Pigg said.

NSIPS replaces four legacy personnel and pay systems for active-duty and Reserve members, allowing them to update their addresses, phone numbers and emergency contact information online.

It uses a customized version of Human Capital Management software from PeopleSoft Inc. of Pleasanton, Calif., and is the largest implementation of the software in the federal government, officials said.

The NSIPS deployment comes as the Navy prepares to integrate its personnel systems with DIMHRS by early 2006.
