Project Implementation Timelines


Phase 1A | Core Human Resources 

The first phase of the project initially focuses on planning the project management. This phase also involves configuring and developing the core components of the Human Resources Maintenance, Management, and Security workflows before deploying the system. 

There are three parts to the first phase of this project, which are described below: 


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 
  • Benefits 
  • Deductions (includes garnishments)
  • Time and Leave Management 
  • Payroll 
  • Payroll Accounting Management
  • Employee/Manager Roles 


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.
