Frequently Asked Questions

 

What will IPPS-A do for the Reserve Force?
When fully deployed, IPPS-A will serve as a “one-stop shop” for Soldiers to view and update their personnel and pay records.  All Army Components will use IPPS-A as the authoritative Human Resources (HR) System. IPPS-A will include:

  • Soldier online self-service portal
  • Near real-time 24/7 global online access
  • One time data entry into HR system for both personnel and pay actions
  • Audit log of HR users for each Soldier’s record

Who will IPPS-A?
Once fully fielded, IPPS-A will be used by all Soldiers, Commanders, and Human Resources (HR) Specialists within the Active Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard to conduct personnel and pay actions throughout their career. IPPS-A will not contain personnel information on Army civilians.

Why is IPPS-A needed?
There are currently over 15 personnel and pay systems that update a Reserve Soldier’s records.  Within those systems are overlaps and underlaps that affect the accuracy of the Soldier’s information.  IPPS-A will correct those accuracy issues by consolidating information entry into one system of record. 

Additionally, IPPS-A will:

  • Provide multi-Component personnel information for Commanders and leaders
  • Make annual Soldier Record Reviews more time-efficient and accurate.
  • Allow Soldiers to see their records and make some changes themselves, without making appointments at their Human Resources Office.
