S1NET Message Summary - 27 Dec 22

1. TAG SENDS: IPPS-A GO-LIVE IS HERE. From BG Gregory S. Johnson, The Adjutant General of the Army:  Some key items in this TAG Sends as follows. View the entire message at the following link on S1NET.  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1217170      a. HR Professionals (and any user with a subcat role, to include those with the Commander’s bundle) have access as of 0900 EST on 20 December 2022. On 3 January 2023, Leaders and Managers will have access to process, route or approve actions. And on 9 January 2023, all service members will have self-service access.  Focus early on your priority of work items that need to be completed to ensure Soldiers get promoted as we begin to quickly regain accountability within the system.      b. DA Selection Boards: Please be advised that due to the Army’s transition to IPPS-A several legacy HR systems can no longer be updated.  As a precaution the Army archived Record Briefs of all Soldiers who would meet a centralized selection boards prior to April 2023.  Record Briefs are not source documents, but we know they are used as a summary of information for selection boards. Soldiers that will be considered by a centralized board should view and certify their board files as laid out by the related MILPER.  If significant discrepancies exist between one’s file and their Record Brief, they can submit a letter to the board highlighting those concerns.       c. Officer Promotions. The HRC Officer Promotions team will begin working backdated orders and future January Promotions at Go-Live! Any updates to Suspension of Favorable Personnel Actions (SFPAs) must be completed in IPPS-A no later than 29 December 2022, 1159 EST. The IPPS-A Priority of work checklist requires this task is completed as a “day 1 task” at Go-Live. An order is not generated in IPPS-A until the effective date of promotion if all eligibility is met. Therefore, Officer Promotions list will continue to be posted on the milSuite site (S1NET) to provide units visibility of projected promotions. Units can use the projected list to plan for the execution of ceremonies assuming all other eligibility is met.      d. Enlisted Promotions. The HRC Enlisted Promotions team will begin working backdated orders and future January Promotions at Go-Live! Any updates to Suspension of Favorable Personnel Actions (SFPAs) must be completed in IPPS-A no later than 29 December 2022, 1159 EST. The IPPS-A Priority of work checklist requires this task is completed as a “day 1 task” at Go-Live. Succuss is important in preventing any erroneous promotions. IPPS-A changes the way Soldiers receive their promotion order. An order is not generated in IPPS-A until the effective date of promotion if all eligibility is met. Therefore, Enlisted Promotions will continue to be posted on the HRC Enlisted Promotions site to provide units visibility of projected promotions. Units can use the projected list to plan for the execution of ceremonies assuming all other eligibility requirements are met.      e. AMHRR/iPERMS. Servicemembers must log into iPERMS with a DoD certificate/CAC using the EAMS-A login option to successfully initiate, view and or complete Record Reviews. The DS LOGON option cannot be utilized to initiate or complete Record Review tasks. Effective 16 December 2022, SRB upload is no longer required to initiate a Personnel Record Review (PRR) in iPERMS.      f. Casualty Operations. CACs will refer to the Soldier Talent Profile (STP) and Person Profile within IPPS-A for Soldier data information. The Soldier Talent Profile and Person Profile will replace the SRB/ORB/ERB.  Please see attached (at above link) IPPS-A R3 CAC Cheat sheet.      g. TRANSPROC Outage. The Transition Processing (TRANSPROC) system will be unavailable from 2100hrs EST, 23 December 2022 to 1630hrs EST, 9 January 2023 to perform deployment of the Installation Support Module (ISM) release for the new IPPS-A R3 interface. This will delay the production of DD214, DD215, and office computations until after 9 January. 2. OFFICER PROMOTION ITEMS.      a. AC OFFICER PROMOTIONS, JAN 23. This list is for use to plan for Promotion Ceremonies. If eligibility is not met on the effective date, an order will not be produced in IPPS-A. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1217163        b. USAR AGR AND NON-AGR OFFICER PROMOTION LIST, JANUARY 2023. This list is for use to plan for Promotion Ceremonies. If eligibility is not met on the effective date, an order will not be produced in IPPS-A. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1217164 3. IPPS-A GO-LIVE UPDATES. From COL Rebecca Eggers, IPPS-A FMD (on 23 Dec 22):  Some key points in this update follow.  See the complete update at the following link on S1NET.  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1217205      a. The focus for each of you should be on the priority of work tasks (attached). Those are the items that ensure we gain accountability quickly and also ensure the automatic promotions process captures Soldiers accurately at the end of the month.      b. Please continue to reach out if you do not have the access you believe you should have. Do your best to submit new access requests with the entirety of access and ROWSECCLASS you require. Any added SUBCAT or access requires an additional request and only further adds to the current actions that need to be processed.      c. If access requests are not showing up in your dashboard, please use the lookup tool to find the ones for your unit. Remember – if an access request was submitted before your validator access was approved, you will not be able to approve those requests.      d. If you are processing junior enlisted boards and promotions, be sure to include the PROMO DECENTRALIZED role under HR PROFESSIONAL.      e. When clicking the tiles, or submit buttons, please let the action process. Continuing to click tiles and buttons multiple times also cues more actions to process in the back end of the system. We will be adding some enhancements that will keep users from doing this moving forward, but for now, please refrain from hitting submit multiple times.      f. Arrivals/Departures – remember that in order to arrive someone, they must be departed from their previous unit. We have noticed an issue with processing an arrival for a person that reported early during the brownout since there is no absence request in the system. Expect a follow up shortly for this issue.      g. Don’t forget that the Promotion Consideration Roster must be signed by your Commander prior to the 29th of Dec in order to be captured in the end of month promotions job.      h. Promotion Point Worksheets - Some Soldiers serve in organizations that prevent the ability of Soldiers to meet the weapons qualification timelines. These members must have their unit training manager complete an Army Training Management System (ATMS) entry with the same number of hits as the expiring points to allow crediting of promotions points for the duration of the assignment. 4.

S1NET Message Summary - 22 Dec 22

1. IPPS-A GO-LIVE UPDATES. From COL Rebecca Eggers, IPPS-A FMD (on 20 Dec 22):  IPPS-A R3 is LIVE!!! And as of 1000 this morning, we have seen over 1K users log in. Some key points in this message below.  View the entire update at the following link on S1NET.  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/message/1008710      a. Access Issues. We are getting indications that users are having trouble logging in. A few things to try: Make sure you are using the right link! https://hr.ippsa.army.mil/; try clearing your cache, cookies and reload your browser; and any user that hadn’t completed the training or wasn’t mapped to the appropriate role wasn’t auto-provisioned. Submit an access request for these users.      b. Duty Status Adjustments. You may see duty statuses that were not converted from legacy systems. This is not a defect. If you see personnel in your unit that had a duty status other than Present for Duty (PDY) in the legacy system that you now see are PDY, this means you need to do the transaction or PAR to adjust their duty status.      c. Missing Data. We had hoped to finish our catch-up process for the inbound interfaces that will continue to send us data; however, that process is still running. The impact is that you may see some gaps in data that are in those systems and IPPS-A. For instance, if an updated weapons qualification was input into ATMS during the brownout, that data has not finished populating in IPPS-A. Please allow 24-48 hours to allow the data to settle before adding a ticket regarding missing data.      d. For promotions points – the Promotion Consideration Roster should not be delayed if data that would add promotions points is not populated. Have your Commanders record the results of the board. The catch up data will still populate even after the Commander signs that roster.      e. Soldier Talent Profile - Users will see anomalies with their Soldier Talent Profiles as the data continues to stabilize. HR Professionals should start validating records for members as part of their ongoing data accuracy plan after the New Year, with a focus on members accessing and noting discrepancies via self-service so we can rapidly make needed updates. 2. ENLISTED PROMOTION ITEMS.      a. AC SENIOR ENLISTED PROMOTIONS BY- NAME AND OML SEQUENCE REPORT, JANUARY 2023. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1216070      b.

From Army Soldier Records Branch:  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/message/1008428      a. IPERMS is currently moving 4.2 million records from the AV Domain to the AD Domain (e.g., veterans and retirees) in support of IPPS-A R3 implementation. IPPS-A data transition is complete on NIPR for both Unit and Member data, however there is an issue with the unit hierarchy. There are over 17,000 Service Members in 1,472 units that are not in our unit table. IPPS-A says that it is an Army Organizational Server (AOS) issue and an emergency IPPS-A ECR was discussed to modify the way that IPPS-A creates the hierarchy that would remedy the issue.  Once this issue is remediated in IPPS-A the correct information will be passed to and processed by the IPERMS team.      b. Board Activities: If you are experiencing issues with the iPERMS portion of your board file please contact iPERMS Board Support team at the email provided at the above link.      c. The activation of a new domain (AD) for retired and separated Service Members is ongoing. Based on this modification, some users have had their IPERMS elevated permissions removed. The IPERMS technical team is restoring these permissions automatically and the ASRB Access Control Team is standing by to support with access issues once the restoration by the IPERMS technical team has concluded.   6. NEW S1NET TOPIC, JOB ANNOUCEMENTS (CIVILIANS). Based on a number of requests from members, we have created a new topic on S1NET (at the following link) to allow organizations to advertise civilian GS positions, GS 12-15.  P ositions which are posted per the instructions provided will then be listed once in an S1NET message in the last paragraph.
