In September 2022, the Chief of Defense Forces (CDF) of the UPDF commissioned and launched the biometrics systems and Uganda Peoples Defence Forces Identity Cards at the Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs (MODVA) Headquarters at Mbuya. The CDF applauded the Chieftaincy of Integrated Resource Management Information System (CIRMIS) for the upgrade made on the biometrics. The upgrade was cited to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the system thus improving work processes and service delivery. The CIRMIS seeks to streamline personnel accountability at work.

The system has an embedded biometrics component for verification and identity card printing designed to effectively identify the UPDF personnel.
