The Army Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System (DIMHRS) is a congressionally mandated program spearheaded by the Department of Defense. DIMHRS is the largest commercial solution ever attempted by the federal government and will result in the largest, fully-integrated human resources system in the world. Army DIMHRS will provide the Army with an integrated, multi-component, personnel and pay system. DIMHRS addresses major deficiencies in the delivery of military personnel and pay services, such as incorrect pay and inaccurate credit of service, which are caused by a myriad of systems with multiple complex interfaces.

The goals of Army DIMHRS are to:

- Deliver key personnel functions and integrate pay and personnel seamlessly
- To create more streamlined systems to support the military mission and personnel transformation goals
- Provide better integrated HR service to the Soldier and his family
- Continuously evolve to meet the needs of the Soldier and the Army

The Army is currently working directly with the DIMHRS developer to determine the functionality.

Army DIMHRS will:

- Provide the Army with the integrated Active, Reserve and National Guard component personnel and pay system
- Streamline mobilization and demobilization personnel transactions
- Integrate payroll functionality
- Provide 24 hour self-service functionality

The Army will implement DIMHRS in 3d Quarter FY08.
