Program Analyst DCPAS

“I like automation. What excites me about DCHRMS is the minimal screens for HR; and the ability to put a lot of self-service back into the employees’ and managers’ hands so they don’t have to rely on HR for everything.”


Mr. Howard Locke, Director

DFAS’ HR Shared Services Center

“We are intrigued by the possibilities for improved self-service. From the manager being able to track the status of personnel actions, for the employee to initiate actions, to the reporting and data analytics at all levels.”


Mr. Dexter Burnam, Director

“When I take a step back and think about what we are doing, it is pretty amazing.”
