A MESSAGE FROM OMAR NOORZAI
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, UCLA BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION OFFICE

UCLA continues to make steady progress towards transitioning our campus to UCPath in September.  With our transition a mere few weeks away, campus preparation activities are well underway with our project team laser-focused on User Testing, Training, Data Conversion and collaboration with our partner, the UCPath Center. We are also fully engaged in campus outreach and awareness activities for all employees with our UCPath Roadshows and the delivery of a host of communications collateral aimed at preparing our employees for what to expect when UCLA transitions to UCPath and what they can do in advance to prepare for the transition.   

This is truly an exciting time for our campus as we find ourselves on the cusp of bringing a long-awaited modern, state-of-the-art human resource and payroll solution to our campus.  We are energized by the prospects of the integrated capabilities the UCPath solution offers and even more thrilled to introduce a shared services model to effectively provide information and customer service to our employees at UCLA and across the UC system.

As we prepare for go-live, we must acknowledge that change is sometimes difficult and transition often challenging.  No system implementation is ever seamless and we know that there will be bumps along the road.  However, with a collaborative spirit, patience and determination, along with a shared goal of ensuring a successful transition for UCLA, I am confident that our campus is well positioned to meet any challenges we might face.

In the meantime, I encourage you to explore the UCLA UCPath website for more information, the latest project updates, and answers to many of your frequently asked questions.  You can download materials and share with your organizations/departments and colleagues.  

On behalf of the UCPath Project Team, thank you for your continued support of the UCLA UCPath program. Your support will go a long way in helping to usher our campus into a new, more collaborative way of working and provide us with greater operational freedom to focus on our core mission of teaching, research and public service.
