IPPS-A’s integrated HR capabilities will for the first time enable Army personnel data updates to automatically trigger Soldier pay transactions upon IPPS-A’s Release Four. This capability will ensure Soldiers receive timely and accurate pay once a personnel change is made (e.g., promotion or change in dependents). In addition, the Army will improve access to personnel and pay information by providing a self-service IPPS-A Web portal from any Internet connection with Common Access Card (CAC) authentication. Together, these capabilities will create a more accurate and reliable HR system for Army Soldiers, Leaders, Commanders and HR Professionals. IPPS-A will be CAC enabled upon its first release.
