MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The "Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) - My Record" was added to the Sailor Career Toolbox, an online collection of career management tools accessible through the BUPERS Online portal, Nov. 29.
Formerly called Web-Enabled Record Review, OMPF - My Record is one of the many career tools used to confirm personnel information featured in the Sailor Career Toolbox. This change aligns the Navy with the naming convention used by the National Archives.
"By selecting 'OMPF-My Record,' Sailors can view documents in their OMPF, previously known as the 'microfiche record,'" said Chief Personnel Specialist Carol T. Fister, Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Records Management Policy Branch senior enlisted advisor. "These are the same documents viewed by selection boards when considering candidates for advancement and special programs. Using OMPF - My Record is much easier and quicker than the old process of requesting to have a CD be mailed to you."
The Sailor Career Toolbox is posted on the NPC website at http://www.npc.navy.mil/CareerInfo/CareerToolbox/.
There service members find information on the career management tools needed to enhance professional growth, verify personnel information and explore career opportunities. Some of the tools included in the Sailor Career Toolbox are the Electronic Service Record, Career Management System/Interactive Detailing, Navy Knowledge Online and Navy Credentialing Online.
"With OMPF- My Record, Sailors can securely view, download and print documents, but they should be cautioned against downloading and saving these documents to a PC at work or at the library that others also use," Fister warned. "All of these documents contain personally identifiable information that could be used by others to steal a Sailor's identity. We do not want anyone to become a victim."
In the Sailor Career Toolbox service members will also find another important resource, the Command Career Counselor Toolbox.
"The Command Career Counselor Toolbox is a 'must have' for counselors and leaders," said Senior Chief Mass Communications Specialist Maria R. Escamilla, assigned to the Sea Warrior Program. "The Command Career Counselor Toolbox provides eight online tools and the actions required to support Sailors, covering the areas of career information, retention and professional development programs. Some of the tools included are Career Information Management System, Perform to Serve/FleetRIDE and Navy Retention Monitoring System."
