DCHRMS is a cloud-based human resources personnel system that is integrating six different databases into one. DCHRMS is making it more flexible to share information between Components, while standardizing and streamlining personnel processes. Some of the guiding principles for DCHRMS include a single employee database for the DoD; increased business efficiencies; improved functionality for recruit-to-fill, compensation, and transfers; and self-service capabilities for managers and end users. These capabilities will enhance the user's ability to execute a wide range of human resources functions.
In addition, DCHRMS will include Performance Management to support the Defense Civilian Intelligence Performance System and the Defense Performance Management and Appraisal Program. This will allow users to navigate within one system to execute core HR and performance management processes. The application offers an automated performance management solution, which includes a dashboard for managers, links to employee within-grade increases, and performance awards.
