MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- With the holiday season just around the corner, the Navy took time Oct. 26 to remind Sailors about the ease of using the new electronic leave (E-Leave) system.

E-Leave allows Sailors to electronically submit leave chits through their chain of command for approval, replacing the traditional paper leave form.

It also offers commands automated leave log management, ensuring pay and entitlements are properly accounted for with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS).

The new system was introduced, tested and implemented in just a few months. All shore commands, personnel support detachments and command administrators are required to be fully integrated no later than Nov. 1.

"Leave transactions, which account for 20 percent of all Navy pay transactions processed annually, were submitted to DFAS late more than any other pay-impacting event," said Capt. Hank Vitali, Personnel Service Delivery Transformation Office, Navy Personnel Command (NPC). "E-Leave was developed to reverse this trend. We are 100 percent implemented, 100 percent in timeliness and 99.3 percent accurate with Sailor's E-Leave automated transactions at DFAS Cleveland."

E-Leave significantly reduced the timeframe for routing a leave request when tested recently at NPC.

"Sailors can track it at anytime, and members can elect to receive e-mail notifications throughout the routing process," said Personnel Specialist 1st Class (SW/AW) Krzysztof Chodnicki, NPC, leave administrator.

Sailors, reviewers and approvers can access E-Leave through a common access card (CAC) log-in to the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System at https://nsips.nmci.navy.mil.

"Commands will have full visibility in the system to identify the status of any Sailor's request and easily track and account for all Sailors on leave," said John Courtney, Navy E-Leave program manager.

Afloat implementation for ships started in October 2010 and will be phased in during a 24-month period. A separate message will provide further instruction for afloat commands.

For more information on E-Leave, read NAVADMIN 252/10 and 103/10, and/or call NPC's Customer Service Center at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC or e-mail CSCMailbox@navy.mil.
