Department ID Change Delayed

The move to six digit department IDs within PeopleSoft HCM that was announced in the March Hiring & Managing Newsletter and anticipated to take effect on April 1 has been delayed temporarily due to a number of unforeseen consequences and cross-institutional impacts.

Teams from HRS, IST and other areas are actively evaluating the potential impacts, requirements, and solutions and will propose an alternative delivery date as soon as possible. The University remains committed to making this change because it is necessary for the upcoming 9.2 PeopleSoft HCM upgrade.

Thank you to faculties and departments that have forwarded us your department ID changes. We will communicate the new timeline for delivery and any impacts as soon as possible. We will also follow up with you to review your department ID changes before implementation.

Thank you for your continued support and patience. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact HR Systems and Reporting at hrpss@ualberta.ca.
