Quick Answer

The Automated Time Attendance and Production System, or ATAAPS, is a program that allows government agencies paid by the DCPS system to record work hours and track those hours by task via an online platform. The system provides employees with a tool to enter and track attendance online and to submit leave requests for approval. The application also allows superiors to enter, update and correct schedules and input labor charges.

To access the system, an employee must first submit a form through IMCOM for a Common Access Card, which a supervisor approves prior to the employee receiving login credentials. Once approved, the employee logs into the system and enters time and attendance in the time interval required by his task, whether weekly or monthly. The system maintains six months of data online, so employees can also access past time sheets.

The application assigns each employee to a team, and that designation routes the employee's account to the correct certifier. Information for these team designations comes from the DISA Master Employee Database, though employees should check to be sure their designations are accurate.

To access the system from home, employees need Common Access Card readers for their computers, which they can purchase for around $20. Otherwise, employees must log in to the system from Common Access Card enabled computers at their workplaces.
