UCPath is the University of California’s critical project to implement a single payroll, benefits, HR and academic personnel solution for all UC employees. UCPath will replace UC’s 35-year old Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) with a single new payroll and HR technology system, standardize and streamline payroll and HR processes systemwide and centralize certain HR/APO and payroll transactional processes within the UCPath shared-service center.
Through both cost savings and cost avoidance, the UCPath Project will enable UC to provide HR and payroll operations at a lower cost than today. Studies have shown that as much as 20 percent of the university’s payroll/HR staff time is spent on problem resolution or rework.
By implementing UC-wide payroll and HR systems and transforming related business processes, it is estimated that the university could achieve long-term cost and efficiency savings of $31-$123 million annually.
The original approach of UCPath focused on installing the software that would support HR and payroll. Because of the differences in the way each campus and medical center performs these functions, it was quickly evident that UC locations would need to collaborate to define standard ways to do this work in order to see value from the technology. More than 100 business processes were reviewed and standardized. As each location converts to UCPath, it will adopt these process changes along with implementing the software tools.
Yes, the UCPath Center will provide support to all UC locations by 2018. Full participation of all locations is necessary to ensure consistency of business processes across campuses and standardization in the quality and efficiency of services.
While its true that UCPath includes a software replacement for key functions like payroll and timekeeping, it's more than that.
In addition to standardized processes and new technology, UCPath will deliver a shared-services center to support routine employee benefits and payroll transactions. The UCPath Center, in Riverside, is already supporting UC Santa Cruz and UCLA with transactions in the legacy Payroll and Personnel System.
At a very high level, UC employees will use UCPath self-service to view paychecks, PTO accruals, enroll in benefits and complete other HR transactions.
Accountability for successful "go lives" and institutionalization of the UCPath processes and procedures is shared by the UCPath Project team and each location's UCPath team, including steering and advisory committees.
Various communications will begin to go to employees, managers and HR professionals in the weeks and months leading up to the time UC Path goes live. Training will be provided to most users and reference guides will be available.
