On Friday, 19 September 2014, over 45 members of the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army (IPPS-A) staff, comprised of military, civilian and contractor personnel, formed teams to compete against their colleagues in a friendly game of golf. The IPPS-A Program Management Office (PMO) hosted the IPPS-A Golf Tournament at Old Hickory Golf Course, Woodbridge, VA. The “best ball” format allowed beginning and experienced golfers to play together but still experience a sense of competition. This is the first in a series of team-building events organized by the IPPS-A leadership with the aim of networking and building camaraderie among staff.

“I witness the hard work of our military, civilian and contractor staff every day. The team is engaged and actively sharing the ideas that are going to drive this system to success. Team-building events, like the golf tournament, allow staff to take a well-deserved break and come back to work refreshed,” said COL Darby McNulty.

IPPS-A is a web-based Human Resources (HR) system, currently in development, that will provide a comprehensive personnel and pay record for each Soldier, regardless of Component. IPPS-A will alleviate the Army’s reliance on more than 40 systems that do not efficiently share information with one another. The IPPS-A implementation team is led by COL McNulty, IPPS-A PMO Project Manager, and COL Robin Parsons, IPPS-A Functional Management Division (FMD) Chief.
