Enterprise Analysis

System Implementation

2016 - Cardinal payroll system project launched.
2017 - Cardinal completes upgrade of the Cardinal Financials to PeopleSoft v9.2.
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.
