The design of the Navy Reserve Pay System was approved. The system was designed to pay Naval Reservists for: (1) performing active duty for training; (2) performing temporary active duty for less than 30 days; and (3) attending drills. The automated portion of the system was designed to establish and maintain individual pay accounts and to pay members from a central site. It is located at the Navy Finance Center, Cleveland, Ohio, and processes data received from the Naval Reserve Personnel Center.

The internal controls in the system appeared to be adequate. Interface data that enter the system are edited and validated by the Personnel Center's systems, and source documents pertaining to personnel data are retained at the Personnel Center. Transactions can be traced for audit through social security numbers and other unique numbers assigned to forms and batches. Automated programs can be used to extract accounts. Minor problems were identified; there is a need for: (1) redesign of the software system to take advantage of enhancements offered by the new computer configuration being used; and (2) a contingency plan at the Navy Finance Center's central site computer facility.
