UCPath is the University of California’s new payroll and human resources information system, which will replace the 35-year old Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) that is currently in use. The UCPath project includes replacing PPS with UCPath and implementing more effective and efficient ways to deliver payroll and human resources services to UC employees. On November 30, 2015, UCOP UCPath had a successful go-live.
ANR’s emergence as a new business unit and the impact of UCPath will be provided throughout these pages.
Presently, ANR’s workforce management is distributed using 4 campus-based payroll and HR systems and processes, and is accountable to 4 sets of local policies and procedures.
Issues and inefficiencies with this current state:
- ANR is essentially functioning as 4 distinct employers. Location transfers require termination and re-hire processes.
- Capturing and consolidating even basic HR and payroll information is labor intensive. It is difficult to effectively and efficiently manage, monitor or report on our workforce on a statewide basis.
- Compliance, accountability and control issues require greater management effort and oversight to mitigate risk of noncompliance.
- Retrieving programmatic information is cumbersome due to the need for data integration from 4 different financial ledgers.
UCPath implementation and ANR's emergence as a single unified business unit will result in:
- Streamlined, standardized and synchronized business processes
- Standardized HR policies and practices across the division
- Ease of access to consistent, quality, and timely data and information for management decision making
- Improved effort reporting and accountability as well as strengthened controls and compliance
