Where we are going...
May 2018 - Agency leadership from the Department of Human Resource
Management (DHRM) and DOA, along with the Secretaries of Administration and Finance,
decided to revise the Cardinal payroll system implementation plan to incorporate the
replacement of the state’s Personnel Management Information System (PMIS) and
Benefits Eligibility System (BES) in conjunction with the replacement of Time Attendance
and Leave (TAL) system, and CIPPS. This decision was made based on risks associated with
stability issues in PMIS and BES.
August 2018 - Cardinal HCM Project Analysis phase officially
started and will continue through late spring 2019. The objective of this phase is to
conduct human resource and benefits administration business process assessments, as well
as to identify the impacts to Cardinal payroll and time & attendance business process work
done to date. The result of this phase will produce a revised implementation schedule for
completing the HCM Project.
