In the spirit of modernization and innovation, UBC is proposing a major upgrade or replacement of its core HR and Finance systems. Both systems are currently running on aging software, and are overdue for renewal. There have been significant changes both in the technology landscape, and in the way UBC operates from a process perspective. The changes contemplated will enable UBC to take advantage of newer technologies to improve users’ experience and deliver mobile capabilities for our faculty and staff.
Staff in financial and human resources functions will contribute to the project during the various project phases. All faculty, staff and student employees who access the self-service portal on both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses will likely see changes in the future.
