Cardinal Statewide Instructor Led Training

The Cardinal Project is pleased to offer additional Statewide Instructor Led Training (ILT) courses. The Cardinal sessions will be held in Richmond at 6800 Paragon Place. Individuals must register in the Commonwealth of Virginia Learning Center (COVLC), using the keyword ‘Cardinal’ to see the listing of available course conducts.

Cardinal Payroll Project

The Cardinal Payroll Project will replace CIPPS (Commonwealth Integrated Payroll and Personnel System) over the next two years.  This project leverages the Commonwealth’s investment in Oracle’s PeopleSoft application and will allow for full integration to the Cardinal Financials application.

By replacing CIPPS with Cardinal, we will reduce the risks associated with our current aging system, which will not be supported by the vendor after May of 2018.  Cardinal will meet the majority of Commonwealth’s payroll business requirements and will provide robust reporting tools.



At the recent Cardinal Chart of Accounts and Agency Conversion Kickoff meetings, Cardinal team members presented an overview of COA and the impacts and considerations in integrating Cardinal Finance and Human Capital Management (HCM).  The conversion approach and related agency activities were also presented, along with next steps.
