S1NET Message Summary - 3 Oct 23

1. IPPS-A UPDATE, 3 OCTOBER 2023: AWARDS, SEPARATIONS, SABIR, CRM, ABSENCES, AND RECERTIFICATION. From COL Rebekah Lust, IPPS-A FMD Director: “Thank you for continuing to send your feedback as we continue to build upon IPPS-A together. Below are highlights of system updates and some good news stories. I, and the entire FMD team, appreciate your support and continued engagement and enthusiasm for IPPS-A.” Some key points follow. See the entire update at the following link.      a. PROCESS AWARDS PRIOR TO DEPARTURE. In order to process an award for a Soldier, it is best practice to complete the award prior to their departure. After a Soldier has left the unit, a Buddy Personnel Action Request (PAR) can still be submitted for their award, but that unit no longer has permissions to the Soldier. The Buddy PAR will then route to the approval chain of the awardee not the recommender. Therefore, the new organization will be responsible for approving the award submitted.      b. END-STRENGTH/IPPS-A SEPARATIONS BACKLOG. IMCOM and HRC continue to work on a way ahead to adjust the business process to reassign workload for building separation assignments. Backlogged transactions from the first six months are complete. The HRC team is focusing on July and August separations allowing the Military Personnel Divisions (MPDs) to focus on daily transactions and streamlining the process. There are currently just over 3.5K backlogged transactions.      c. CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT (CRM) CASE BACKLOG. As of 20 September, there are 8,556 open CRM cases in COMPO 1, a significant improvement over the previous week. A shout out to the 3ID and 4ID teams for making significant strides on resolving cases.      d. UNCHARGED ABSENCES KNOWN ISSUE. The review between Defense Finance Accounting Service (DFAS) and IPPS-A for absence transactions not processed between May and July is complete. The remaining transactions were all sent to finance and the end of month (EOM) September Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) will reflect the charged days. A small population, less than 50, had already separated and sold back leave. The decision to forgive the debt this caused is working through the approval process. Individual notification will go out to the population when a decision is made.      e. ACCESS RECERTIFICATION JOB AID. Annual recertification notifications started 22 Sep and is required to retain your current elevated level of system access (any level above self-service). If a user is not recertified prior to the 365th day, they will be reduced to self-service access and will have to submit a new access request. 2. BECOME AN EXPERT LEADER TODAY - ALx SEPTEMBER BULLETIN.
