S1NET Message Summary - 15 Aug 22

1. DELAY OF LEGACY HR SYSTEMS BROWNOUT. From the Army G-1:  “Today (12 Aug 22), Army Senior Leaders decided to delay the start date of HR Systems Brownout based on the feedback from limited user tests. Systems will not brownout as planned on Saturday, August 13, 2022. Legacy HR Systems will remain operational to ensure continuity of support to Soldiers. We are more confident than ever that we can deliver IPPS-A Release 3 to the Army; however, a key to success is ensuring the force is trained. While we complete work on our end, our HR professionals and leaders need to finish their mandatory IPPS-A training and review internal business processes. We need 100% participation, and I charge you to make sure your organizations are in compliance. Over the next few weeks, the team will review functionality available for delivery in September and will provide updates as we move forward. To keep informed, visit the website at https://ipps-a.army.mil/. You can also find IPPS-A on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn. Thank you.” LTG Doug Stitt, DCS, G-1.  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1178778 2.
