The Electronic Service Record (ESR) was approved in fiscal year 2002 and is designed to replace a Sailor's paper based Field Service Record (FSR), it provides online view and update capability for personnel clerks and other authorized users at Personnel Support Detachments and Reserve Centers. It also provides an administrative user capability for command military personnel offices to perform updates of a member's record, along with a member self-serve capability for Sailors to view and perform limited updates of their personnel data. The ESR application is available via the NSIPS web page. All service members are encouraged to obtain a self-service ESR account.
