Career Information Management System (CIMS)
In support of the Navy Career Development Program (CDP), Command Career Counselors are required to use the Career Information Management System (CIMS) in accordance with OPNAVINST 1040.11D.
CIMS automates CCC office procedures and provides the ability to create and maintain Sailor Career Counselor Records, prepare for and document Sailor Career Development Boards (CDBs), view the Electronic Service Record (ESR), track status of transactions such as SRB request or commissioning program applications, obtain reports, and generate forms and certificates.
Links provided below support specific actions performed in CIMS. All CCCs should use the CIMS User Guide, which can be downloaded using link provided below.

IMPORTANT System Notes:
- If you are having difficulty assigning Dept/Div Counselors in CIMS and are receiving an error, check with your Command Leave Administrator (CLA) and ensure that both of you are using the same departments/divisions 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.
