MASC is composed of tables and accounting documents that contain support information for edits, references, reports, and identifiers used in application programs. This support information ensures that NFC maintains a high degree of data integrity and validity. It is important that MASC contains up-to-date and accurate data. The accounting codes entered in webTA are edited against MASC.

Payroll Computation System (PAYE). PAYE is the heart of the integrated PPS. It performs the complicated computation routines required to produce net salary data for disbursement and transmission to Treasury. In addition to creating disbursement data, PAYE also creates accounting records that are processed and reported through the Payroll Accounting System (PACS).

Payroll/Personnel Inquiry System (PINQ). PINQ is used as a tool for researching payroll-related inquiries received from employees and other sources. PINQ provides immediate access to at least 25 pay periods of current payroll data. Data entered in webTA is displayed in PINQ after it passes the TIME edits.

Personnel Input and Edit System (PINE). PINE is a subsystem of PPS. PINE edits data released from Payroll/Personnel entry systems, payroll documents, and position data. PINE edits the data before it is applied to the Payroll/Personnel database, comparing the employee's database record to the data being entered. PINE processes personnel actions and payroll documents Monday through Friday of each week and on the first Saturday of the pay period, regardless of the effective pay period. After the data is released to PEPL, it is retrieved during the pay period, and the information is displayed in IRIS.

Personnel Update System (PEPL). PEPL performs the update function of the personnel areas of the database. All documents passing validation through PINE are processed through PEPL for transmission to the database. The data is retrieved during the pay period from PEPL and displayed in IRIS. PEPL also produces a log of all transactions applied to the database, as well as utilization and management reports.
