Payroll Management Information System uses social security numbers (SSNs) to match records from FPPS and CASTLE for payroll labor distribution. This includes complete payroll information on all (active and inactive) MARAD employees and which programs they charge to. It also provides management information to Program Managers on labor charges to their programs. Lastly, the system provides projection of future labor cost per project code.
