The supervisor is responsible for a designated
fictional work area of operations, and supervises and
assists the TO, whenever required. In the SDS, the
supervisors primary responsibility is the accuracy and
release (if authorized) of events from the event file to
the central files. The supervisor uses system reports to
monitor his or her functional area of operations and to
confirm processing of events to BUPERS and
DFAS - Cleveland Center. The supervisor resolves
problems encountered by the TO and refers ADP
problems beyond his or her resolution to the site
Terminal Area Security Officer
The TASO manages the hardware/software security
aspects of SDS within the PERSUPPDET/GSS. The
TASO establishes local security procedures and
controls needed to protect SDS equipment and preserve
the privacy of SDS data.
The SM directs and controls SDS operations within
the PERSUPPDET/GSS. The SM monitors the
operational status of SDS and helps TOs and
supervisors use all of the SDS capabilities. The SM
serves as the liaison between the supervisor and
associate data base administrator (ADBA), who is
located at the PERSUPPACT. The SM refers ADP
problems that arent solvable at his/her level to the
Associate Data Base Administrator
The ADBA is the SDS ADP manager at the
PERSUPPACT and he/she is responsible for all SDS
ADP functions within the PERSUPPACT network.
The ADBA coordinates operations of SDS with the
SMS and the processing center. He/she is the primary
field person responsible for data security. The ADBA
contacts the user assistance section (UAS) at BUPERS
to resolve SDS problems and to recommend
improvements in procedures or functional capabilities.
User Assistance Section
A UAS at BUPERS maintains liaison with each
ADBA. Major ADP problems are referred to the UAS
by the ADBA for resolution by means of trouble reports
(TRs) or system change requests (SCRS). The UAS
logs problems, initiates or assigns responsibilities for
corrective action, and communicates findings and
resolution of problems back to the ADBA. The UAS is
also responsible for preparing announcements to users
when changes are incorporated into SDS.
As you can see, the personnel who make up the
organization structure supporting SDS have their own
particular responsibilities. Their combined efforts
contribute to the overall mission effectiveness of the
ORGANIZATION OF THE SOURCE
The SDS is a computer processing network.
Terminals located at each PERSUPPDET provide
interaction between the operator reporting a
pay/personnel event and an on-line computer called a
field host processor (FHP). The FHPs are
geographically located at processing centers (PCs) to
distribute workloads and minimize costs. The FHPs
support a local data base for personnel assigned at
activities serviced by the PERSUPPDET. Various files
are maintained by the FHPs. These files can be
compared to the information stored in a file cabinet. As
you read about the different types of files, refer to figure
Mini-master file. This file contains excerpts from
the master file at MAPMIS. The MAPMIS master file
contains personnel data related to members who are
assigned to the activity or to the various unit
identification codes (UICs) serviced by a particular
PERSUPPDET. For a complete listing of data elements
contained in the mini-master file, refer to the Source
Data System Procedures Manual (SDSPROMAN),
volume 1, part II.
Local-master file. This file contains data for local
use only and is not transmitted to JUMPS/MAPMIS.
The local master file includes such information as local
addresses and phone numbers.
Event file. This file is used to store data that has
been entered into the system but has not been released
from the PERSUPPDET.
Suspense file. This file is used to track information
released from the activity/PERSUPPDET until
feedback is received from JUMPS/MAPMIS.
