UCPath is a systemwide project to align HR and payroll processes and technology across all campuses and medical centers. The project includes replacing the 30-year-old payroll/personnel system (PPS) with PeopleSoft and establishing a shared services approach for HR and payroll services supporting all UC employees. UC President Janet Napolitano has made this a top administrative priority for the university.
Direction for the UCPath project comes from a leadership team based at the University of California Office of the President, and all campuses are represented in the UCPath governance structure. In addition to reviewing and providing feedback on business processes, all campuses are involved in planning, design, configuration, testing, and implementation of the processes and technology needed for UCPath.
The name, UCPath, stands for University of California Payroll, Academic personnel, Timekeeping, and Human resources.
The Systemwide UCPath Steering Committee approved the implementation approach and schedule. The 1st group of Pilot campuses will go live in August 2017. UC Davis expects to go live in Spring 2018. Read more here.
