UCPath is the University of California’s priority program to implement a comprehensive payroll, benefits, human resources and academic personnel solution for all UC employees.
Recent issues that were discussed include how emergency contact information should be loaded into UCPath and how employee location information could be used. This group is also very active in the review of reports that are being created to provide UCPath information to the campus and Medical Center.
The active participation of many CPO as Subject Matter Experts(SME) and in UCPath workgroups is critical to a successful implementation of UCPath at UCI and we appreciate their enthusiasm and support!
UCI UCPATH PROJECT
Connecting with System Owners
With over 20 years of Oracle PeopleSoft experience, her career at UCI started at the Medical Center as a business analyst supporting their PeopleSoft implementation. Erice currently works on campus with various system managers, developers, and business analysts to ensure that downstream systems are ready when UCPath goes live at UCI in 2018. She said, “It’s quite a great opportunity and challenge working with so many people but I love sharing what I know about UCPath employee data and how to leverage it with business processes”.
Erice recently celebrated her 5 year anniversary at UCI. She and her family live in Tustin and have 3 teenagers, 2 dogs and lots of fresh water fish.
Erice enjoys spending time with her children watching football and lacrosse games, and attending choir and piano recitals. She also spends time with a local organization that works closely with community programs.
Completion of Business Process Guides
This group of local experts have reviewed and provided valuable feedback on the impact of these processes on their schools or units. These experts are helping us prepare to share this information with the greater campus community, while highlighting which processes will mean virtually no change and which will drive a change in the way we process transactions with UCPath.
Carolyn Murry, Amy Ruth, and Janai Hendra will be working with the organizational readiness team to prepare workshops and presentations for the campus on changes and how BPG can be used to create greater understanding around the campus for UCPath.
Reporting workgroup participants were asked to complete two activities during the kickoff: to prioritize a list of reports collected from campus units by order of development preference and to review a prototype Employee Roster Report.
Paul Sheirich, UCI UCPath project director, provided an update on reporting progress, vision, and strategy to provide reports that exceed user expectations when UCPath is deployed. Matt Levin, report developer, explained the process of how report requirements were gathered and then analyzed to determine campus business needs. Matt then demonstrated a prototype of the Employee Roster Report. The workgroup will be asked to vote on whether or not to move forward with development of each report presented and to provide feedback to the reporting team.
The reporting team held a follow-up meeting on June 21 for the reporting workgroup to review feedback collected from the kick-off meeting, review the results of the prioritization voting, and discuss next steps in providing additional information which will enable them to better understand how UCPath works. This information will define and explain how different types of data are used to populate reports. Thank you for your support of the local reporting team and the UCPath project!
