Admittedly I don't know much about it, but its been on local news up north, it appears that most of the crabs are about to leave because they haven't been paid for 2 months, rightly one says if it had been civvys they would have been on strike.
 
Dunno about that mate, but we were told that thousands of crabs STILL haven't logged on to JPA, so its probably not surprising really.
I had a snag in my December pay, rang JPA just before xmas leave and got given basically a "job number" for the problem and was told up to 10 days to sort it.
Rang up again after leave to see if anything had been done (didn't expect much because of xmas etc which is fair enough) and the woman at JPAC went effing mad because it wasn't sorted!
Passed it straight up to the supervisor with a priority one and I got a phone call onboard the very next day saying if was sorted and we're very sorry.
You can't fault that service mate, never had anything remotely like that from the solitaire players in the UPO.

They mentioned a certain website akin to this one for the RAF, & how the complaints had reached such a point it was shut down because of the complaints & language from serving personnel & wives of serving personnel
 
Jeez thats shocking.
It is a bit of pain in the arse first of all, but its easy to get used to and expense claims are fecking easy.
Also if, for some reason, you owe the pusser money, JPA can't take any more than 4 days pay worth in a month.

may be its worked for us cos 90% of us actually go to sea or work for a living.Unlike our civilian oppo's in light blue.You actually have to be near to a place of work to log on to a JPA terminal.
I for one like Lamri have had nothing but good service.
I was refused some expences on wednesday,and stormed into the office .Only to cut off at the pass by a killck writer saying "I'm realy sorry PO but i am new to this system aswell,and I just pressed the wrong button"He put it right in seconds few.
 
I have to agree with the previous posts. Once you log on and get used to the system, it's pretty swift.

I've made a few claims over the past couple of months and they've gone straight into the bank with very little delay.

I believe there are some glitches for some of the more specialised functions, but for the majority of users, JPA and the enquiry system seems to be going well. Also, the UPO staff in the Naval Base are doing a grand job sorting out any snags.

Looks like we did the right thing putting implementation back a few months!

Please find something to substantiate your post. A link to the local news perhaps.

Really?

That's

www.e-goat.co.uk

and it is still active. Searching for JPA turns up no matches so perhaps the news up north is wrong or they didn't refer to a website "akin to this one".

Fellas, stop saying nice things about JPA FFS. It'll crash if you keep tempting fate.

On a serious note, is this he first post in the history of RR where serving members of the RN make positive and informed comments on a current naval issue?

Seadog,
I don't think the search facility on e-goat has worked since the attempted Romanian takeover last month. I heard about this today at work apparently some Sgt, a mate of some blokes sisters' Dad, has gone home and refused to work because he hasn't been paid. The fact that none of the guys I work with knew said blokes name leads me to believe it's a bit of an urban myth...................

However, it's also being reported on Arrse, apparently it was on BBC NE news tonight, and it is obviously true because the MOD have denied it :lol:
 
Good point.
The only problem we onboard have wrt JPA is the lack of 'puters to log on to.
Oh there are plenty onboard, its just that all those in the tech office etc are constantly locked out because all the officers flat refuse to use their laptops in their cabinos for some reason (apart from CdrE & SnrE until Ebay was disallowed :D ).
Of course its not just the officers who do this, and we all know its not allowed, but who is going to shut down a locked pc just to get on JPA when the person locking it may have just gone to the heads quickly, leaving lots of work open?
I won't, because I wouldn't want to be in that situation myself.
