CAS2Net Enhancements Released Back


You spoke and we listened! We’ve been busy this year updating CAS2Net and other software tools used during the pay pool process. We asked for your input for potential enhancements to the software tools at the end of the last rating cycle, and your inputs were very responsive. You, our stakeholders, are our best source for ensuring we focus our resources on the type of enhancements that best support process improvement.

CAS2Net retained its familiar look but there are some subtle changes that will enhance your experience as you interact with the modules. The new features will be released on 28 September 2015. Employees and supervisors will see additional directions embedded in their modules to clarify next actions and to access pop-up supplemental information screens. Pay pool administrators will see they have additional access to perform data maintenance activities and more options for operating the spreadsheets to facilitate pay pool meetings. Perhaps the highlight of the enhancements is the ability to electronically sign the Part I: CCAS Salary Appraisal Form.

For those of you experiencing your first CCAS cycle, the Part I is the summary page for the annual assessment that has information about your appraisal results, including scores and compensation. The form has signature blocks for the employee and supervisor. Thanks to the new eDocument Module, there is no need to print the form to get ink signatures. The eDocument Module facilitates electronically signing the form and also serves as a repository for the signed document. Pay pools can use either Adobe Pro or Adobe Reader XI for digital signatures and upload the signed forms back to CAS2Net using the new module.

The eDocuments Module is a step to reduce paper consumption and speed up the documentation process. Our Army AcqDemo organizations are taking the next step by using another automated tool to get the signed appraisal form into the employee’s eOPF (Electronic Official Personnel File). The tool is a software system designed by Army called AutoNOA, and it has been in use within AcqDemo Army organizations with great success. Our Army AcqDemo organizations will test the use of CAS2Net’s eDocuments Module in tandem with the AutoNOA this cycle.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the eDocuments Module and the other software enhancements during our annual fall software training. We have training sessions targeting employees and supervisors, and pay pool administrators from new and existing organizations. The sessions will be presented via teleconference beginning 15 September and running through 6 October 2015. The table at the end of this article shows training dates, times and call in information. Click the links below the table to download copies of the training slides.

We hope CAS2Net serves as an effective tool to assist you with end-of-cycle activities and beyond. As you accomplish the appraisal cycle this year be on the lookout for suggestions that may make CAS2Net better. We want to hear from you! Contact your pay pool administrator or send your suggestions to AcqDemo.Contact@dau.mil.
