“IPPS-A is here!”  Greetings all.  We have a tremendous opportunity to witness the fielding of an HR system that is more than twenty years in the making.  Simply stated, IPPS-A is a unique HR tool that takes advantage of existing commercial off the shelf windows-based software, ensuring that the Army operates using  the most accurate and auditable data.

This issue draws heavily on the experts fielding IPPS-A and feature articles from the Project Manager, and the Director,
FMD, G1 as well as the dedicated Soldiers, Army Civilians and contractors who in some cases, have put their lives on hold in order to ensure the successful fielding.  It is an honor to help educate and spread the word about this powerful
tool in the Army’s arsenal as we progress towards the Army of 2028.

We hope you enjoy this edition of 1775 and solicit your comments and feedback at magazine@agcra.com.

Defend and Serve!
