The Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS), a Web-enabled pay and personnel management tool, is officially available fleetwide.
The final shipboard installation, on the USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63) on Feb. 7, marked the achievement of full operational capability, the last major acquisition milestone for the program.
NSIPS provides field-level standardized and integrated pay and personnel records management capability for all 374,687 Navy active and Reserve members.
“The ability to easily and reliably access their pay and personnel records from around the fleet is an immense enhancement because it gives our Navy members a tool to help manage their career," said Cmdr. Susan Eaton, NSIPS program manager. “Having NSIPS and the Electronic Service Record (ESR) available fleetwide enables timely and accurate pay changes and provides Sailors at sea or shore commands with ready access to their service record data. Sailors can focus on their mission rather than worrying about whether or not their records are up to date.”
In October 2006, the chief of Navy personnel authorized the use of the ESR for service record management. ESR replaces the current paper-based Field Service Record with an electronic records management application. It automates most service record maintenance and provides individual service members with secure Web access to service record data. ESR was initially deployed to the Navy Reserve
in February 2004, providing Reservists with the capability to update civilian employment information.
The system ensures unprecedented safety and security of Navy pay and personnel records by requiring individual validation for entering, changing, viewing and downloading information. NSIPS utilizes state-of-the-art technology with a defense-in-depth and multi-tiered architecture to provide maximum data safety and security from external threats. NSIPS is the only Navy program that is completely hosted on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) for the shore component of the application.
