PAMPAS

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by paywog, Oct 1, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I know this sounds sad but I'm doing a bit of a history thing and need a bit of info - Does anyone out there remember what PAMPAS stands(stood) for. I think it was along the lines of Personnel Administration Microprocessing Pilot Automated System.

    Anyone???

    PW
     
  2. 'cough' Personnel Administration Micro Processing ADP System

    with the ADP standing for Automatic Data Processing.

    Fuck me I'm sad.

    I was the PAMPAS guru, in fact I've just got them to take PAMPAS TD off my CR!

  8. Those were the days! I hate to say it, but I was a B200 clerk at a manning & records office. I didn't take up their of going to Glasgow- now I wish I had- I'd be running it properly by now!!

    The Battery backup system was a large box of 12V car batteries - it was a four man lift.....ah the memories....... 8O
     
  11. Stop, just stop. At this rate we'll start talking about A5 pay statements that you had to fold and staple before you could distribute.

    Say that to pay clerks these days and they wouldn't believe you.

    Or the large green aquittance rolls. Monthly dice with the dole queue. :D
     
  13. You still get them coming in asking for a 'casual' payment. Fcuk me, that went out about 15 years ago!

    That was close. Nearly left off 'payment'. That would have took this thread off in a completely different angle. :p

    What! No more 'credits'?
     
  15. No, EVERYONE gets paid into the bank. I'd better add an 'eventually'. If you haven't got any bank details on the system, they send you a cheque.
