UCPath Project Overview

The UCPath Project is a UC system wide project and is one of the main tenants of the Working Smarter resolution. It is one of the most complex operational initiatives ever undertaken at the University.

UC recognizes that its payroll and human resources processes can be greatly streamlined and standardized across locations, resulting in more efficient operations and higher quality of service to employees.

The project encompasses three main areas:

1.       Implement enabling technology (Oracle PeopleSoft HCMS - UCPath System)

2.       Streamline and standardize business processes

3.       Centralize transactional activities (UCPath Center)

Implementing the UCPath System will require modules to be implemented in distinct phases. The entire System Wide UCPath Project will occur over three phases. When all three phases of the project are complete, UC will have one single, university-wide system for processing payroll and capturing human resources information across all ten campuses and five medical centers—meeting the core needs of each location while gaining cost savings, work flow efficiencies, and improved data reporting. 

Work on this project is currently underway. A local UC Santa Cruz Project Team has been established. You can find out more about our Local Project activities on the Local UCSC Work Package Team page.
