Career Information Management System
Navy Retention Monitoring System

Career Information Management System (CIMS) is the primary means to plan, schedule, and track the Career Development Program activities. All Command Career Counselors (CCC) should use the CIMS User Guide, on how to perform specific actions in CIMS.

Navy Retention Monitoring System (NRMS) provides the tools and capability to monitor, track, and analyze retention data. CCCs use NRMS to monitor retention and attrition statistics and provide monthly updates to the Commanding Officer. NRMS account is created separately from CIMS account, but the steps to create of an account is the same. 

IMPORTANT System Notes:
The following is in regard to the expiration and removal of NSIPS web accounts and does not apply to NSIPS Web Afloat accounts.
  • NSIPS web environment accounts will remain active for 60 days from the last log-in date.  Individuals who have multiple accounts will only have to log into at least one of their accounts prior to 60 days for all their NSIPS environment accounts to remain active.  A system generated email will be sent as a reminder after 50 days of inactivity.  After 60 days with no use, all NSIPS environment accounts assigned will be locked. Users who have multiple accounts will be required to unlock and log into one of their authorized accounts successfully. Within 24 hours, other valid accounts assigned to the user will be systematically unlocked.
  • NSIPS Self-Service account users must log into each account within 180 days or that particular account will be deleted after 180 days. A system generated email will be sent as a reminder after 170 days of the inactivity for each individual account.
  • If you receive an error while assigning Dept/Div Counselors in CIMS, check with your Command Leave Administrator (CLA) and ensure that both of you are using the same Dept/Div names (the CLA's list will override CIMS). If you are on a ship that is not currently using eLeave, you can create a CLA account for the purpose of addressing this issue. However, you MUST NOT set up the eLeave log or use eLeave until you receive authorization from your TYCOM.
  • If you are a Dept/Div CC attempting to access a record and receive the error message, "You are not authorized to access this record," your CCC needs to assign you as a Dept/Div CC and grant you access to the records.
