The U.S. Navy's Pay and Personnel Administrative Support System (PASS) program has created more than 30 standard operating procedures (SOP) to help Sailors perform their day-to-day personnel activities like travel claims and updating records. The SOPs are accessed through the Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPT&E) intranet on any command access card-enabled computer. A fact sheet is available to show Sailors how to access the SOPs as part of Navy Personnel Command's Plain Talk series at www.npc.navy.mil/career/toolbox/Pages/PlainTalk(series).aspx. Travel claims are just one of the many things covered by the SOPs, other subjects include special pays, basic housing allowance, fleet reserve and retirement requests, updating emergency data and transfers.
