CAPPS Notes

CAPPS provides the framework for providing an interface between the Payroll/Personnel System user community, the program staffs at departmental level, and the technical systems staff at NFC. The Committee interacts with the other system users and NFC in implementing, operating, maintaining, and continually improving the automated USDA Payroll/Personnel system. CAPPS provides leadership and guidance to user Agencies regarding the Payroll/Personnel system and ensures the integrity of the system. Listed below are the meeting minutes and associated materials for CAPPS meetings. Meetings will be held every quarter or every three months at 10:00 AM in the USDA complex. Special meetings may be called as needed.
