Functional Steering Committee

The Human Resources Management System Functional Steering Committee plays an important role in the HRMS Upgrade project:
  • Reviewing all business process and policy changes related to the HR PeopleSoft upgrade and approve changes that significantly impact the HR user community,
  • Advising and making recommendations regarding business process and policy changes and other upgrade related issues as needed,
  • Advising on and making recommendations regarding all major modifications, including the elimination of existing modifications from the system, the preservation of essential previous modifications, or the development of new modifications to support essential functionality not delivered by PeopleSoft.
  • Provide management-level unit perspective to the HRMS Upgrade Team, and
  • Support the goals of the Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program and Operational Excellence.
Committee members include representatives from across the University.  Meetings are also attended by subject matter experts (SMEs) from across the University, members of the OHR Upgrade Group, and members of the HRMS Project Team as needed.


Meetings are scheduled on the third Wednesday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m., with additional meetings added as needed.
