SIMS Version 7.15 improves the functionality of the Incoming Visitors, Cleared Personnel and the DoD Outgoing Requests modules to expand reporting, notifications and process tools. An additional approval role for foreign visitors has been added to the incoming visitor functionality as well as an Export tab and fields for tracking related information on foreign visitors. A new Polygraph tab has been added to the Cleared Personnel module with the ability to link a polygraph with Clearance Cases and Special Accesses. The KMP function has been updated to assign KMP based on the Clearance Case facility which allows one individual to be tracked under multiple SMO codes and to print on individual Facility KMP reports. Additional fields have been added to the DoD Outgoing Requests module and web-based OVR submission tool, to support the current International Visit Request.
