Minimum customization kept development costs in check," said Baham, who was the NSIPS deputy program manager during HPIP development.
The new NSIPS functionality replaced a legacy system that lacked the modern, robust features needed to support NMAD staff and HPIP participants.
NSIPS was a feasible migration path forward as it provided the flexibility to add the existing RSTARS-HP functionality while leveraging its existing interfaces with personnel and pay-related systems and the ability to add new ones," said Catherine Folse, former NSIPS HPIP project manager, who spearheaded development.
Also required was an interface with the Navy Reserve Order Writing System (NROWS) to ensure timely issuance of annual training payments to HPIP participants.
NSIPS provided the HPIP staff with a comprehensive system to receive timely and accurate personnel and pay-related data to not only manage HPIP personnel but to report on them using the robust ad hoc reporting capability inherent to NSIPS," Folse said.
The HPIP component of NSIPS has vastly improved data reliability and accuracy, as well as the accuracy and speed of payments.
