It is a web time system that was developed by NAVSEA. Information feeds to our payroll system that is managed by DFAS.
My command (I just learned this) just recently transitioned from paper time keeping to this system about a year ago (OH MY GOSH!)
Is Web TA the same thing?
Basically a few days before the end of the pay period, employee logs into the system, inputs their time for each day, and clicks on the “certification” button. Supervisor goes in a day later and certifies that they agree to it and approve. Then a timekeeper runs a report of the system to ensure all time has been certified and the hours input are correct. Challenges are ensuring everyone puts their time in and certifies on time. We still have many errors (user errors).
