UCPath at UCSB: Updates
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 UC is giving away $75 Starbucks or Peet's Coffee gift cards to the UC employees who come up with a great new name for the multi-year, system-wide PPS Replacement Project, and also for the new system itself.
Two different names are needed, and two prizes will be awarded. Full details, including contest rules, selection criteria, and characteristics to consider when thinking up a name, are included in the Naming Contest Guidelines.

The University of California has begun work to deploy an integrated payroll and human resource system across all 10 campuses and five medical centers.
Rolling out a new system across the entire University is a daunting project, but the biggest challenge isn’t technological, it is the operational and cultural shift that is integral to the project’s success: For the first time in UC’s history, every campus and medical center will follow a single set of standardized business policies and practices for payroll, HR and academic personnel.
The Payroll Personnel System Initiative has set an ambitious January 2013 timetable for that sweeping change, to ensure that UC has aligned its business practices when the first wave of campuses begins using the new payroll and HR platforms.
“Definitely, one of the biggest challenges is going to be the organizational change and systemwide standardization,” said project director Anthony Lo. “We have people from every UC location involved in redesigning our business processes to be sure that all of the University’s diverse needs are met.”
