15 …while positioning OSU to take advantage of new and improved functionality… Currently using a fraction of available functionality Shore up foundation before adding on Create roadmap for implementing out of scope functionality WHY?
16 … through the reduction of customizations Decrease long-term maintenance costs Simplify the application of delivered updates Facilitate the implementation of new functionality WHY?
17 We will… Align and streamline processes to fit delivered system Simplify system maintenance and integration Decrease risk of unplanned maintenance Increase database capacity while decreasing annual costs In order to… Maximize resources available for future projects and advances BENEFITS
19 There will be… Access changes Navigation changes Data conversion Field changes Removed New/unhidden Edits removed Schedule and deadline changes GENERAL CHANGES
20 Some field change details... Will remove: Home Department Timekeeping Group Check Sort Will need to type the location address Will add 3 user defined fields Home Department will convert MORE CHANGES
21 Some other changes… New Action/Reason codes considered Ineligible for Rehire (IFR) Voluntary Separation (VSIP) Equity/Market Position approval changes Graduate Fee Authorizations will not cover additional fees Paycheck modeling available in Employee Self Service STILL MORE CHANGES
22 Key changes to additional pay… Departmental/College/Unit/Service Center processing of additional pay will stop at HRA All processing of additional pay will be managed by Payroll Services Delivered additional pay does not include Comments Expanded Earnings Codes planned ADDITIONAL PAY
23 New module, same results… Encumbrances = Commitment Accounting JED (Job Earnings Distribution) = Department Budget Table PET (Personnel Expenditure Transfer) = Direct Retro Distribution COMMITMENT ACCOUNTING
24 But its not ALL the same… Department Budget Table Not linked to Job Data Set up by fiscal year Tied to the appointment (University, College of Medicine) or position (OSUWMC) Direct Retro Distribution Paycheck data is required Much more flexible, powerful MORE COMMITMENT ACCOUNTING
25 Why this change is so important… Removes 50% of the other system customizations including: The majority of Payroll customizations The most invasive customizations Allows us to use other delivered processes immediately and in the future Facilitates additional Chartfield audits and ties direct retro distributions to paycheck data Provides more powerful direct retro distribution tool WHY COMMITMENT ACCOUNTING?

29 Communication, Training, and Everything In-between Starting with existing meetings and communication channels Beginning to mix in project and change-specific messages and events Targeting faculty, staff, and student employees in winter- spring and again before autumn semester WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT
31 HRA Implement the HRA system, if you havent already Contact Stacie Dutton, email: firstname.lastname@example.org@osu.edu Know that approvals in the HR system may change – your approval workflow in HRA may also Current Position and Job Opening approvals are customizations in PeopleSoft Decisions about these approvals are still being finalized Business process decisions are still being determined and will be communicated soon! HRP ACTIONS TO TAKE
32 Ineligible For Rehire Adhere to policy – must obtain approval from ER Consultants for employees to be deemed IFR Lists will be maintained in central offices until conversion New job data action reasons will be used in 9.2; including IFR Benefit to the university: sharing of information and consistent application So HRPs know! Hire/Rehire action will automatically be stopped by the 9.2 HR system if an employee has an IFR record Historical information will be loaded into the system New activity will be audited by OHR Check the employment history in the HR system of all former and current university employees early on in your search process! HRP ACTIONS TO PLAN FOR
33 User Access to the HR System The roles allowing access to the system are changing – entirely! There will be a new approval process - TBD Requests will be reviewed more closely Goal: Limit access to sensitive information Training, training, training WHAT TO EXPECT AHEAD
35 Go Live & Freeze Periods Go Live date is May 28, 2014 Freeze Periods There will be a freeze period of several days prior to Go Live – no activity in the system May also have a freeze period after Go Live – TBD Dual entry in both systems will be needed if effective dates cannot be adjusted outside of the conversion period HRP ACTIONS TO PLAN FOR
36 Go Live & Freeze Periods Go Live date is May 28, 2014 Reports will be available for you to check data before Go Live Need to ensure that clean data is loaded into 9.2 Biweekly pay period will be impacted – determining a timekeeping process for that pay period More to come Training – Spring 2014: Plan your calendars! HRP ACTIONS TO PLAN FOR
37 MO PP11 05/01 – 05/31 Conversion Record effective 6/01 HR 9.2 GO LIVE DATE 05/28/14! BW PP25 05/18 - 5/31 Conversion Record effective 5/18 Conversion Period 05/18 – 05/31 BOTTOM LINE : AVOID ENTERING TRANSACTIONS INTO THE SYSTEM WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE FROM 5/18 – 5/31 IF POSSIBLE!
38 Job Data Information Conversion period: 5/18 – 5/31 Future-dated records Limit as much as possible entering transaction with an effective date of 5/18/14 or later Transaction may not convert over to 9.2 system accurately – you will have to audit all of them They may need to be entered again after go-live HRP ACTIONS TO TAKE
39 Conversion Period: 5/18 – 5/31 Entering transactions during this period will be tricky! Where ever possible, try to avoid transactions with an effective date during this period Work with employees, managers, and faculty proactively – communications are critical Every active employee in the HR system will have a conversion record auto-populated onto job data in the system Effective 5/18 for Biweekly; effective 6/01 for Monthly Do NOT remove or edit the conversion record in Job Data The conversion row will ensure that employees are paid and receive benefits appropriately HRP ACTIONS TO PLAN FOR
40 Job Data Information Conversion period: 5/18 – 5/31 Retroactive effective dates Transactions entered into the 9.2 system (after conversion) with an effective date prior to conversion Will be problematic – these are essentially two different systems JED changes/Direct Retro Changes – will be entered through weekly journal entry process – centrally through Business & Finance HRPs will have to track them on a spreadsheet and submit them to B&F through HRA We are still identifying the processes that will be needed Communicate with your teams the need for timely processing! HRP ACTIONS TO PLAN FOR

45 Testing User Acceptance Testing (UAT)March 3 – May 2 System testing – will test user access, transactional ability HRPs needed for testing sessions; individuals with very high level understanding of the HR system, with varying user access profiles (access to all modules as well as those with access to specific modules) – let your SHRP know Reporting TestingDates TBD HRPs needed to test revised reports as well as the new Buck IQ reporting interface HRP PARTICIPATION IS NEEDED
