7/18/2013 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- About 6,000 employees at Robins will migrate to a new time and attendance system Aug. 11.

The units affected by the change consist of the 78th Air Base Wing, 461st Air Control Wing, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, the 638th Supply Chain Management Group, 5th Combat Communications Group and the Air Force Sustainment Center
Operating Locations.

Air Force leadership committed to implementing theAutomated Time, Attendance, and Production System, or ATAAPS, to standardize civilian time and attendance processes
in mid-2012. During fiscal 2013, the Air Force began rolling out the system, with many sites adopting it ahead of schedule.

According to officials, ATAAPS eliminates the antiquated, manual process, but there are other reasons to adopt it.

"It allows folks to focus on the mission, and allows the Secretary of the Air Force and Chief of Staff of the Air Force to make informed decisions about where we need to spend our money," said Doug Bennett, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Financial Operations.

Further, the transition helps standardize current processes critical to addressing civilian
pay financial reporting risks identified by the Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness Team.

Training began at Robins with a course for 78th Comptroller Squadron customer
service representatives. The course focused on building the installation database and
accounts.

A train-the-trainer session was conducted June 24 through 27 which focused on timekeepers'responsibilities. Those CSRs and timekeepers are now training employees and supervisors onATAAPS.

"ATAAPS is a new system for the Air Force and will take a concerted effort from all levels to fulfill our training mandate to assure a smooth transition to this automated
system," E. Lee Franklin,Air Force Financial Services director, said.

The goal is to have 100 percent of paper-based and electronic management tracking
system employees on ATAAPS by the end of the fiscal year.
