HOW WILL IT BE IMPLEMENTED?

It will be implemented in two phases. We are currently in the first phase, focusing on implementing Workday to replace PeopleSoft’s human resources, finance, budgeting, research administration and reporting functions in approximately 24-monthsComplementing the Workday implementationthe Service Enhancement Transformation (SET) project will begin transforming the way HR and Finance work is organized to optimize the delivery of services across UCF. Phase two will focus on migrating UCF Student Systems from PeopleSoft to Workday while continuing the focus on improved administrative services and more effective processes.
