Civilian Record Brief provides snapshot of employee's data
February 7, 2012
SAN ANTONIO (Feb. 7, 2012) -- The Army has developed a Civilian Record Brief for civilian employees and their supervisors.
The one-page Civilian Record Brief, or CRB, provides a snapshot of an employee's official data pulled from the Defense Civilian Personnel Data System. By consolidating data onto a single page, employees will be able to easily review their personnel data, ensuring the official database information is accurate and complete.
Installation Management Command leadership emphasizes the importance of civilian employees taking ownership of their careers and ensuring their records are correct. The CRB will serve as a vehicle to correct and update missing or outdated information such as training, awards, performance histories and education.
Civilians will be able to use MyBiz to self-certify and update degrees, professional licenses, occupational certifications, professional military education and technical training. It will also enable supervisors and managers to better mentor employees.
A side benefit of the CRB is the ability to use it as a foundation for and/or attachment to resumes and Individual Development Plans, known as IDPs. The CRB enables employees to include employment data not included in official records that may be of value to a future employer -- such as non-Army positions, developmental assignments and military duties.
The CRB will be available to employees through the Employee tab in CPOL. Employees may update some information using the self-service capabilities of MyBiz and CPOL Portal.
To access their CRB employees should go to http://acpol.army.mil and log in via the Employee Portal (Top Right). Click on the Employee tab (Top Left) and in the Employee Data section click on the GO button. Their CRB will be located under the Self Service Applications section.
Changes made using MyBiz will normally be reflected in the employee's personnel record the following day.
Anyone who encounters problems accessing their CRB can use the CPOL Portal helpdesk under the Employee Tab.
