BRS Fact of the day:
"NSIPS was recently updated to provide IT capability to execute BRS business processes. All service members currently enrolled in BRS have self-service capability in NSIPS to perform BRS lifecycle events. Additional capabilities have been built into NSIPS to allow Navy HR personnel the ability to perform BRS processes, such as the administration of Continuation Pay.
All service members with an NSIPS Member Self-Service account have access to NSIPS BRS. Although all Sailors with an NSIPS Member Self-Service account can access BRS, some BRS actions (like Continuation Pay) will only be available for those enrolled in BRS. "
"Physical Readiness Information Management System is currently unavailable in BUPERS Online. This is due to a PRIMS program update that resulted in log-in issues for command fitness leaders. While My Navy Portal remains able to display the member's Physical Fitness Assessment results, the Physical Activity Risk Factor questionnaire link is disabled due to technical issues. We’re working diligently to restore PRIMS and will update you when it is back online. Thank you for your patience."
