S1NET Message Summary - 30 Jun 23

1. ADJUTANT GENERAL SCHOOL COMMANDANT SENDS, 30 JUN 23. From COL Chesley D. Thigpen: “An ALL IN, happy 248th birthday to our great Adjutant General’s Corps! We have been around since before the birth of our Nation and our Corps has always been at the forefront of readiness to meet the needs of our Army. As our own Adjutant General’s Corps March proclaims, “when Congress called for arms in Seventy-Five, the AG Corps was the first by Washington’s side.” Nearly two and a half centuries later, our AG Soldiers are still supporting their commanders and often found right by their side, providing expertise and wise counsel to help them make informed decisions. Adjutants have a special relationship with Commanders. As we look to the future, Large Scale Combat Operations (LSCO) remain at the forefront of our operational mindset. We must continue to prepare technically with our modernized HR system - IPPS-A and develop HR capabilities to operate in potential austere conditions with rigorous, realistic training. We will evaluate and review our doctrine, organization, training, and leadership capabilities through collaborative discussions, roundtables, and forums.” See the entire message at the following link, which includes the highlights of AG Week, information on the new IPPS-A HR Pro Lite and IPPS-A Administrator Courses and the AG Credentialing Program, and a farewell to the 8th Chief Warrant Officer of the Corps, CW5 Mark Hickman. 2. IPPS-A UPDATE 30 JUN 23: E-EFMP, AC OFFICER RESUME INFORMATION, USAR PROMOTIONS AND PEOPLESOFT UPGRADES. From COL Rebecca Eggers, IPPS-A FMD: “As we reach six months since Go-Live, we can see units are progressing in their IPPS-A routines and forwarding valuable feedback. We want to provide an update on items such as Enterprise Exceptional Family Member Program (E-EFMP), the AIM-2 Resume information, USAR Promotions and PeopleSoft Upgrades.” Some key points from this update follow.  See the entire update at the following link.      a. EFMP screening is a requirement to receive PCS orders, especially OCONUS assignments, to prevent EFMP delays. The Family Member Travel Screening (FMTS) process is now inside of E-EFMP, when in the past paper forms were completed as part of the Levy process. All Soldiers with dependents going on an OCONUS assignment must complete FMTS before they can get orders. This is in addition to the requirement for a Soldier to update their EFMP every three years.      b. AC Officer Resume Information. As part of conversion, IPPS-A did a one-time load of the free text resume information from the Active Duty Officer Assignment Interactive Module Version 2 (AIM2).  The information is currently visible on the STP; however, there is no ability (nor was one planned) to update this information in IPPS-A since IPPS-A eliminates free text. To avoid confusion, IPPS-A will remove the resume information (e.g., Officer Self-Professed Knowledge, Skills & Behaviors) from the STP.      c. USAR Promotions. The U.S. Army Reserve will continue to use the Reserve Career Management System (RCMS) to provide updated Record Briefs for boards through FY24. Boards are synchronized with iPERMs the morning of a board’s convene date to ensure the most updated documents are shown to the board. USAR Soldiers may still use legacy Soldier Record Briefs (SRBs) during FY24 promotion cycles. Record Briefs will be viewable in Soldier’s MyBoard File prior to the convening date.      d. Correspondence and resident course updates within the training tab of Profile Management will not be an available function to HR Professionals.  Army Training Requirements and Resources System (ATRRS) will remain the Authoritative Data Source for such actions to be included in a Soldier's IPPS-A personnel record. This includes updates to the STP.      e. Interface Timelines are attached at the above link to help the field understand when IPPS-A is scheduled to pull information from other systems. Based on this schedule, users can anticipate data updates and make CRM Cases if data is not available. This document is also accessible on S1NET. 3. IPPS-A QUESTIONS. (Please assist if you can.)      a. HAS ANYONE MADE A POWER POINT FOR THE STP? Where does it break it down by section, show how each sub-field should be filled out, and what each value should be? Like the one for the SRB. 4. BRANCH/COMMAND ITEMS.      a. AGCRA NEWSLETTER # 84. 5. Recently published All Army Activity (ALARACT) messages.
