A ceremony was held May 2 at Fort Belvoir, Va., to officially recognize the change of charter for the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army (IPPS-A). Project Manager COL Robert McVay, who has led IPPS-A since October 2011, transitioned leadership of the program management office to COL James “Darby” McNulty in a ceremony hosted by Mr. Douglas Wiltsie, PEO EIS.

The IPPS-A is the Army’s modern, multi-component HR system that gives Soldiers and Commanders 24/7, self-service access to personnel and payroll information, while providing decision-makers with precise, relevant, timely, and authoritative data. Under COL McVay’s leadership, the IPPS-A was one of the first programs to successfully go through the Business Capability Lifecycle, or BCL, process, and achieve Milestone Decision C and Full Deployment Decision for Increment 1, providing a single trusted database that is available to 355,000 National Guard Soldiers, and is loading the Active Army data now.

COL McVay was selected to the position of Director of CYBER by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASA[ALT]), with an office at headquarters PEO EIS at Fort Belvoir.

“COL McVay has built a strong foundation for change within the PM that I am confident will continue to make a true and lasting impact on the Army,” said Mr. Wiltsie in his remarks. “Thanks to Robert’s leadership, dedication and creative problem-solving, we are changing the HR domain, and bringing the Army closer to the ultimate goal of a web-based, integrated system that provides ALL Army components with a comprehensive personnel and pay record for their entire career.”

COL James “Darby” McNulty comes to PEO EIS from the Deputy Director position for Acquisition Management, Acquisition Resources and Analysis, within the office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (USD AT&L). COL McNulty has served as a program manager at the ASA(ALT) and OSD level, having transitioned from field artillery officer to acquisition.

“Welcome, Darby – I am excited that you are a part of the team,” said Mr. Wiltsie in his closing remarks at the ceremony. “I look forward to continuing IPPS-A’s great contribution to supporting every Soldier, every day, everywhere.”
