MILLINGTON, Tenn. - The current Navy Personnel Command (NPC) website, www.npc.navy.mil, is receiving a new but familiar look as it moves to a new server hosted by Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), April 11.
"The migration to a server hosted by DISA complies with a Navy-wide mandate to consolidate all public websites," said Lt. Cmdr. Delmy Robinson, NPC Strategic Communications Officer. "The number one thing visitors are advised to do is to refresh their bookmarks and 'favorites' as they might have changed due to modifications in the navigation layout."
The revision came about as the Navy merges its portals per directives NAVADMIN 145/07 and 061/08. The NPC website contains more than 6,000 pages which registers nearly one million visits per month.
"The new system offers a better web experience with a simplified layout, improved search engine capabilities and the same Sailor-relevant content," said Robinson.
Regular users of the NPC website will not experience any major changes. Organizations will experience improved content management features, faster access time, and common access card login for Web authors, eliminating password requirement. Automatic page expiration forces Web authors to conduct timely updates to improve Web content currency and reliability.
"The NPC Website is second most visited Navy site," said Robinson. "More than 85 percent of the Navy's Web content can be found only here, it is imperative that Sailors and their families have non-interrupted, user-friendly access.
"Our ultimate objective is to provide Sailors and their families with current and reliable web content, so they can make informed career and life decisions," said Robinson.
