Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS)

Functionality subsumed by NSIPS in July of 2021

The Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS) is a corporate system that generates and maintains the official automated personnel records of all the United States Navy/United States Naval Reserve (USN/USNR) active duty officers and officer candidates for both current and historical purposes.

OPINS also maintains personnel records for active duty officers (Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW), Full Time Support (FTS), Officer Candidates Accounting and Reporting Subsystem (OCARS), Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC), and United States Naval Academy (USNA).

OPINS is primarily used to calculate officer staffing strength, authorize the establishment of a pay record at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), prepare Officer Data Cards (ODC) for dissemination to officers, and prepare Officer Distribution Control Reports (ODCR) for dispersal to field activities. The ODC and ODCR can be accessed via BUPERS Online (BOL). Additionally, the officer distribution and promotion processes are dependent upon the quality of OPINS information, as are numerous managerial and congressional groups seeking aggregated information about the Active Officer populations. OPINS provides critical, historical, and current data for decision support systems as well as selection boards.
