Finance and Administration engages in projects across the university that help keep Georgia State University running effectively. Some of the significant projects include:
Georgia State University will be using ADP (Automated Data Processing) as our “smart sourcing” partner to replace PeopleSoft HR. ADP pays 1 in 6 people in the United States and even has a local office in Alpharetta, Georgia. This “smart sourcing” project is a strategy of the University System of Georgia to increase efficiencies, consolidate services, and to integrate us into the Shared Services Project within the University System of Georgia. As part of the Shared Services project, we are working with the 32 model schools to implement payroll, benefits, and a self-service portal! Eventually, you will be able to make changes to your benefits on-line! The anticipated live date is JULY 1, 2009. A newsletter is provided each month with updates on the project.
The ADP system will be connecting, and interfacing with the new financial system, the grants module and most importantly you when you receive your paycheck.
The Electronic Personnel Action Form (ePAF) was developed to improve and simplify the business process for completing and processing the Personnel Action Form
Spectrum Plus (The new Finacial System)
Georgia State University is upgrading the Spectrum financial system to a more recent release and supported version of PeopleSoft Financials. One of the major goals of this project will be to move GSU towards the Board of Regents (BOR) financial model. With this approach, GSU will be able to take advantage of training, reports, and interfaces developed at BOR. New modules including: E-Procurement, Expense, and Grants Management will be featured in the new system.
