The ITAPDB establishes data element standards that will be shared among Army Information systems horizontally between Army communities and vertically between field level and DA human resource information systems. Establishing a common set of data element standards enables the Army to eliminate redundant data, ensure commonality of information, reduce data conversion costs, and align with DoD development initiatives. As ITAPDB Data Element Standard evolves, it will apply to intelligence, operations, fire support, logistics, safety, transportation, human resource, military police, medical, dental, finance, chaplain, legal, post operation, civilian personnel, moral and welfare, recreation, force management, education center, inspector general and contractor support mission areas as it pertains to people related exchange of information or data.
This standard is essential to achieve effective and efficient system interoperability among systems that support all Army human resources—soldier, civilian, or contractor in active or retired status.
Individuals desiring a copy of the draft ITAPDB Data Element Standard Version 1.0 should e-mail or write to Ms. Giddings or Mr. Oestreich at the above addresses.Start Signature
