The rescheduled UTShare PeopleSoft project kickoff meeting is 3-4 p.m., Wednesday, June 22 at the University Center Denman Room (2.01.28) on the Main Campus. The PeopleSoft system will replace Define (including HRMS and UT Direct/Point Plus), the current human resources and financial management system. Staff members who work with Define and other interested faculty and staff members are invited to the meeting. Light refreshments will be served.
Speakers and executive sponsors at the meeting will be President Ricardo Romo, Provost John Frederick, Kerry Kennedy (vice president for business affairs) and Gage Paine (vice president for student affairs).
The new system implementation will affect all UTSA financial and human resources processing, such as generating payments to vendors for goods or services, or making employment transaction changes. The planned launch of the new system is September 2012. In addition to UTSA, six other UT academic institutions and the UT System are participating in the effort.
The UTShare mission is to implement common, standard human resources (HCM), financials (FMS) and auxiliary support systems that provide access to accurate, timely and relevant data while using recognized best business practices in a shared services environment in support of the University of Texas System.
In the UTSA Handbook of Operating Procedures (HOP), the following policy has been created to address institutional requirements. Periodic updates to the HOP online will be announced in @UTSA.
