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

The University of California (UC) has embarked upon an ambitious strategic initiative to streamline and modernize the way human resource and payroll functions are handled across the system.

UCPath aims to integrate key human resource, benefits and payroll functions into a single system to more efficiently manage employee information and improve customer service for more than 200,000 UC employees’ system-wide. The UCPath solution has been designed to strengthen our operational foundation, by replacing our aging Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) system with more modernized, stable technology and aligned business processes.

We are pleased to announce that UCLA, along with UC Santa Barbara, will transition to UCPath on September 1, 2018. We will join the Office of the President, which launched in 2015, along with the Pilot campuses — UC Merced, UC Riverside, and ASUCLA — which successfully transitioned to UCPath on January 2, 2018, in using this new payroll and human resources platform.

This is an exciting time for the UCPath Program and for our campus. With the successful implementation of our sister campuses, this achievement represents a significant milestone for the UCPath program and further builds a platform and momentum for continuing our work as we plan for UCLA’s transition later this year.

In the coming weeks, more information on the UCLA UCPath system, what it means for you, and what you can do to prepare for the implementation will be available. Should you have questions, we encourage you to contact your organization’s UCPath Advisory Group representative as well as explore the UCLA UCPath website for more information, the latest project updates, and answers to many of your frequently asked questions.

Thank you for your continued support of the UCLA UCPath program. Your commitment to successfully implementing UCPath will help 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.
