Project Implementation Timeline
During the Align phase, the Project team develops work plans. The Security Management, Data Conversion, and Interface Plans are developed by the Technical Team. The Change Management and Training Plan are developed by the Change Management Team. The Functional team works with the State subject matter experts (SMEs) to design the new business processes with a focus on the user experience. The new business processes are developed for each of the following functional areas:
- Position Control
- Personnel Management
- Deductions (includes garnishments)
- Time and Leave Management
- Payroll Accounting Management
- Employee/Manager Roles
Configure and Develop
During the Configure and Develop phase, the Project Team configures the new system to accommodate the new business processes. The new processes are tested, training materials are developed, and users are trained. Technical readiness is assessed and mock conversions are performed. Training materials are created, power-users are trained, and agency readiness assessments are completed to confirm agencies are ready for the deployment of the new system.
Final preparations are completed to ensure overall success when the new system goes live. Cutover is accomplished and post-implementation support is initiated. Phase 1A is planned to go live in the Fall of 2024.
