JUNE 10, 2016, MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) – The requests for separations and retirements, including requests to transfer to the fleet Reserve and separations online, was announced June 8 in NAVADMIN 133/16.
Retirement and separations (R&S) will be implemented incrementally through the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) beginning in June 2016 and continuing throughout the summer and fall. The initial roll out will include the commands supported by Personnel Support Det. (PSD) Gulfport, Mississippi; Little Creek, Virginia; and Memphis, Tennessee.
Once the initial three PSDs complete implementation satisfactorily, a phased roll out of the remaining PSDs will follow. A schedule will be posted and announced. Additionally, NSIPS Web-Afloat implementation timeline is dependent on the ship modernization process and will be completed in about 24 months after initial roll-out.
“The transition to requesting and routing retirement and separations requests is the first end-to-end personnel process to be re-engineered,” said Ann Stewart, assistant chief of naval personnel for pay and personnel. “This major modernization integrates and streamlines the retirement and separation business process and is inclusive of officers, enlisted, active and Reserve personnel.”
Routing online will allow for verification along with routing and transparent tracking of applications for the individual Sailor, their command, the PSD and Navy Personnel Command.
Sailors and command personnel can begin training for the new process now. Once logged into NSIPS, users can find a link to User Productivity Kits near the bottom of the page. Beyond that link is training geared toward familiarizing Sailors with the R&S process as well as listing the requirements commands will need to be able to route the requests.
