The Automated Time Attendance and Production System (ATAAPS) application is hosted by DISA as an Enterprise Service and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) serves as the software vendor. ATAAPS gives the DoD and other government agencies who are paid by the Defense Civilian Payroll System (DCPS) the ability to accurately record time and attendance while capturing labor hours by job order (task).
ATAAPS is a web-based data entry application, functioning with the use of exception-based logic, that allows employees to enter time and attendance information while selecting and charging time to the associated job order/task (i.e leave, overtime, comptime, wellness, etc.). Additionally, leave requests may be submitted to the appropriate individuals for approval. ATAAPS is a feeder system to DCPS providing the Source Data Automation to payroll.
As an enterprise-wide service, ATAAPS reduces the cost of operations and maintenance within the DoD and other government agencies by consolidating hardware into DISA's secure, global Defense Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs).
ATAAPS creates a common platform for the DoD and other federal agencies who use DCPS as their payroll system of record, ensuring agencies can easily and effectively enter, validate, certify, audit, and transition records to DCPS electronically.
ATAAPS has five categories of users:
- System Administrators
- Super Users
