Initial Assessment: The PeopleSoft Human Resources System is used to provide automated processes for human resources, benefits, payroll, and position management.  Overall, the system performs well, but ongoing enhancements are needed to improve workflow efficiency for district and college end-users.  Additionally, new functionality is continually being added and enhanced with version updates and patches.  Staying on current and updated versions allows the district to take advantage of new delivered functionality.

Plans:

  1. Continue to maintain currency of the PeopleSoft Human Resources (HR) System by planned periodic upgrades so LRCCD sustains contracted, licensed support from the vendor. 
    1. Lead(s): DOIT Application Services in collaboration with Human Resources personnel
    2. Funding Sources: Existing resources 
    3. College and District Roles: DOIT will provide project and technical leadership. Advisory and business goal clarification will be provided by PeopleSoft HR, Payroll and Benefits Liaison Teams, TCS users group, District Research and other vested college stakeholders as appropriate.
  2. Conduct comprehensive assessments of key processes to enable increased automation and consistent workflows to gain efficiencies across the district.  Use results to identify and prioritize needed enhancements for approval, funding, and implementation.

Indicators of Success:
