Human Resources

IBC is an OPM-certified payroll provider and federal shared service center for human resources. 

IBC has been providing payroll and HR services to federal agencies for over 35 years through a comprehensive set of personnel systems and services. We offer development and support, and provide for the design, modification, implementation, documentation, and future versions of these systems. Our comprehensive and integrated HR support services meet or exceed all government requirements and federal payroll guidelines.


The Federal Personnel and Payroll System is a comprehensive personnel and payroll system. FPPS meets all government requirements and federal payroll guidelines. FPPS is customer-driven, creating and generating the full life cycle of personnel and payroll transactions, enabling agencies to maintain records electronically. Certain aspects of security can be controlled by the customer and are flexible enough to support most business processes. The  integrated user friendly, point and click screens, system for real-time updates and edits of employee personnel and payroll data clearly enhances the timeliness and accuracy of agency personnel and pay actions. The system's table-driven features allow for responsiveness and flexibility in implementing new programs, laws, and regulations; and for addressing client-specific pay plans and processes. A major feature of FPPS that substantially improves the personnel and payroll product is its capability for users to process retroactive personnel and T&A actions. The system automatically generates corrections to intervening personnel transactions, as well as triggers automated retroactive pay adjustments for up to 26 pay periods. The fact that personnel and payroll data is integrated into one database eliminates the need for resource-intensive reconciliations between two systems.

FPPS Datamart

The IBC Datamart is a data warehouse environment utilizing an Oracle database that provides online access through its core reporting tool and other customized auxiliary applications. Populated with data from FPPS and other source systems, it serves as an enterprise reporting and application solution across functional areas for DOI and IBC clients governmentwide.
