Over the last two weeks there has been an extensive process to analyze the amount of work remaining to complete the upgrade. Included in the readiness process was each of theUMasscampuses and UITS (the President’s Office organization that supports our PeopleSoft applications).In the end, it was concluded thatUMass would go-live over the first weekend in May with a scheduled go-live on Monday, May 4th. Only Human Resouce staff will be in the system on day one and will soon be followed by all departmental timekeepers. Later in the spring, we will open up the HR system for new self-service functionality.
Now that we know the date we will be upgrading, we will now go ahead and finalize a training schedule for our current HR system users.
