The Fort Jackson Personnel Automation Section (PAS) manages installation personnel, accounting, strength reporting and the eMILPO database for data accuracy and accepted timelines within the Department of the Army standards. We act as a liaison between Human Resources Command (HRC) and installation units by addressing ongoing eMILPO and human resources issues/concerns, and provide possible solutions or feedback to the installation with technical and functional support.
The PAS offers services within the following areas: eMILPO User Assistance, installation level eMILPO operations, Personnel Asset Inventory (PAI), Total Army Sponsorship Program (TASP) and installation level support concerning the Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System (ADPAAS).
Strength Accounting Reports
Validate and Reconcile Strength Accounting Reports
S-1’s (and separate units) will produce the AAA-162 report reflecting current unit composition after processing transactions that change unit strength. Unit Commanders must annotate and sign the AAA-162 report. The unit designated human resources representative or unit eMILPO user will provide to the Personnel Automations Section (PAS) on a monthly basis as a mandatory requirement.

PAIs are primarily conducted at company or battalion levels. The objectives of the PAI are:
The purpose of a PAI is to maintain timely, error-free personnel accountability, and to involve commanders at all levels in the strength accounting and reporting process. To reconcile the eMILPO database with actual Soldiers present in the unit, whether assigned or attached to synchronize the eMILPO database with the Total Army Personnel Database (TAPDB).
Provide eMILPO User Assistance
Provide guidance and procedures for eMILPO processes to end users.
Total Army Sponsorship Program (TASP)
The TASP aims to support Soldiers and family members effective integration into the Army, assist them as they transition to different units, and ensures they are assigned sponsors prior to reporting or departing from their current organization. Obtaining a sponsor reduces the stress of reporting to a new unit, enhancing resiliency and improving readiness among Soldiers and Family members ensuring successful reception and integration into units and communities.
Upon arrival to the gaining installation, Soldiers are required to complete the sponsorship in-processing survey within the first 45 days of arrival at the gaining command.
