PPS Replacement Project Gets New Name

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Executive Steering Team of the UC initiative to replace existing payroll and personnel systems on member campuses with a new system-wide solution recently announced the initiative's new name: UCPath.

The new name was selected from 216 entries submitted for a naming contest in November, and will be used to designate both the project to replace existing PPS systems, as well as the new system itself.

The "Path" in UCPath is an acronym for Payroll, Academic Personnel, Timekeeping and HR.  The Executive Steering Team liked how the name incorporated the variety of services that will be delivered by the project as well as its forward-looking emphasis.

For information on the project, including an overview, resources, and project updates, see the UCPath Project pages at it.ucsb.edu.
