We want to give you a short overview about Arrival and Departure System, aka ADS and give you an idea about the benefits of ADS. 

What is Arrival and Departure System

The Arrival & Departure System or ADS, was built to provide a framework for any mission or organization to track and manage their check-in and check-out process, with visibility for the employee, service providers, and mission/organization management.

ADS was approved by the Department of State in 2018 to handle and store SBU and PII data.

ADS provides many advantages such as providing:

  • native state.gov authentication which allows for Single Sign-On (SSO) from OpenNet and the Internet
  • a highly stable and secure environment hosted on the Microsoft Azure FedRAMP approved cloud
  • access for both users regardless of having a state.gov account; meaning this system fully supports usage by any agency staff.
  • a single profile for a user that applies to every transfer
  • transparency in the process to employees, service providers and mission/organization management
  • it is roles based and highly secure with special permission sets
  • fillable forms where the employee infomation is automatically pre-populated 
  • electronic signatures to acknowledge or sign forms and tasks
  • multiple reports 
  • a good sponsor management where tasks can be assigned to Office, Social and Check-Out sponsors
