A Message from the Program Director

 Cristina Jacobson


We have a busy year ahead, and we are on a roll!

The UCPath project team is working with teams at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Agriculture Natural Resources and the UCPath Center to get ready for the month-long UCPath cutover process in March. All are working diligently to finish the final cycles of testing, training employees and cleaning up data. At the same time, they are gathering readiness data for UCPath go/no-go decisions in late February.

At key checkpoints during the implementation process, these teams collect data to gauge progress against a host of key readiness measures, such as data quality, training, process design and staffing.  The final checkpoint is this month, and it will inform each location’s go/no-go decision. UC President Napolitano, Chancellor Christ, Chancellor May and Vice President Humiston will approve their final decisions February 28.

In the meantime, these already-busy UCPath project teams are in the midst of rehearsing cutover tasks to fine-tune their cutover plans, clarify roles and pinpoint timing for each task in this complex effort.

Our final cohort of UC locations includes UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Cruz, UC Hastings and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.  Their project teams are very busy setting up technical infrastructure, developing interfaces and creating new UCPath business processes to be ready for testing in May and cutover in December.

Thanks to all the teams for their hard work -- we are heading towards the final stretch!
