Source Data System
Personnelman 3 & 2 - Military manual for government personnel administration
Pay and Personnel Events
instead  of  going  through  time-consuming  manual searches  to  find  required  data. l The SDS allows its users to report gains, losses, and other events with a single entry that updates the data base.  By  reporting  events  on  a  single  entry,  often duplicate  reporting  is  eliminated.  For  instance,  in  the past, members reporting for duty to a command would require the completion of both a NAVCOMPT Form 3068 and a diary entry. This reporting can now be done with a single SDS event entry. Master data bases at BUPERS and DFAS - Cleveland Center continually provide updates to the local data bases, so that PNs, DKs, and other users of the system can provide Navy members  with  accurate  reflections  of  their  official records. SOURCE DATA SYSTEM BENEFITS The  development  and  implementation  of  SDS required a major investment of Navy resources. The benefits,  however,  have  continued  to  be  far-reaching. The improved timeliness and accuracy of BUPERS and DFAS  -  Cleveland  Center  data  affects  every  Navy member and every naval activity. As a result of SDS, the Navy is able to do the following: l l l l l o Calculate pay correctly at DFAS - Cleveland Center, avoiding the need for field override of pay Prevent overpayments of separating members Improve the distribution of Navy members and manning of Navy activities Realize   efficiencies   in   the   management   of Military Pay Navy (MPN) appropriation Improve  planning  and  management  of  Navy  end strength  and  recruiting  goals Improve  pay  and  personnel  service  to  every Navy  member Navy  men  and  women,  such  as  yourself,  when serving in PASS offices, Naval Reserve activities, or shipboard  personnel  and  disbursing  offices  are  part  of a large Navy team dedicated to the improvement of pay and  personnel  support. SDS  is  a  tool  to  help  you provide this personnel support that your shipmates need. SOURCE DATA SYSTEM OVERVIEW Whether located on a ship, in a PASS office, or GSS, users of SDS operate the system through KVDTs and printers  located  in  their  work  spaces.  On  a  ship, terminals  are  connected  to  the  Uniform  Microcomputer Disbursing  System  (UMIDS).  (NOTE:  Before UMIDS, they were connected to onboard Shipboard Nontactical  Automated  Data  Processing  (SNAP)  Phase I  and  II  computers.)  As  technology  advances,  a  better system  for  transmitting  information  from  units  afloat should  be  developed. Terminals in PASS and GSS offices are linked by telemmmunications  to  computers  located  at  regional processing  centers,  such  as  naval  computer telecommunication  stations  (NCTSs)  and  naval d a t a    a u t o m a t i o n    f a c i l i t i e s    ( N A V D A F s ) . Telecommunications   also   link   these   regional processing   centers   to   the   headquarters   pay   and personnel  systems. The  pay  system,  known  as  the  Navy  Joint Uniform  Military  Pay  System  (JUMPS),  is managed by DFAS - Cleveland Center. The  personnel  systems  are  the  responsibility  of BUPERS and include Manpower and Personnel Management Information System (MAPMIS) and  the  Inactive  Manpower  and  Personnel Management  Information  System  (IMAPMIS). SOURCE DATA SYSTEM OPERATING CONCEPTS The SDS design recognizes the interdependence of pay  and  personnel  matters  and  provides  a  single, integrated system to support both functions. SDS is a standard  system  that  supports  both  active  and  Reserve forces,  afloat  and  ashore.  To  help  you  understand  SDS, some basic concepts are explained in this section. The Data Base Information stored on the computer that supports each  PERSUPPDET,  GSS,  or  shipboard  office  is contained in a data base. The automated data base, known as the Mini-Master, has a record for each Navy member for which the PERSUPPDET, GSS, or ship is responsible. The data base contains both pay and personnel information and is linked electronically to BUPERS and DFAS  - Cleveland Center, permitting the field and headquarters to exchange information rapidly. The  data  base  contains  data  elements  that  the  field  users 15-4
