The Navy has announced that it has begun a field test of its new integrated pay and personnel system for approximately 1,000 recruits entering Boot Camp at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Illinois. Over the next six months, these recruits' information will be entered simultaneously into the test system and the Navy's current pay and personnel system, which will provide a simultaneous, non-disruptive, side-by-side comparison of various transactions that are conducted. This field test is the first in a series of assessments that will grow in complexity over time and ultimately build on each other. Each field test will compare the efficiency and accuracy of the test system and inform the need for additional testing or modification before being implemented Fleet-wide.
