Status of the Enterprise Payroll and Time & Attendance Modernization Project
On Feb. 16, 2016, the State of Hawaii issued a request for proposals (RFP) to modernize its payroll and time and attendance systems, with vendor proposals due April 4. Following the current review and evaluation period, award of a contract is anticipated no sooner than June 2016.
UPDATE: The State of Hawaii has selected CherryRoad Technologies Inc. to modernize payroll and time and attendance systems to provide greater functionality and efficiencies in serving more than 75,000 full- and part-time employees statewide. Read the news release.
The Enterprise Payroll and Time and Attendance Modernization project is being led by the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) in partnership with the Office of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS). The project goal is to provide greater functionality and efficiencies in serving more than 75,000 full- and part-time employees statewide. The initiative provides significant opportunity to further Ige Administration efforts to transform the culture of government to embrace and accelerate the adoption of more efficient, less paper-dependent ways of doing business.
The current DAGS central payroll system provides pay checks and deposits to employees across all Executive Branch departments (including the Department of Education and the University of Hawaii), as well as the Judicial and Legislative Branches, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation. However, the current system is more than 40 years old, runs on the mainframe, and relies heavily on paper-based processes.
