A Message from Mark Cianca


I’m pleased to announce that Pilot campus chancellors and UC President Napolitano have approved deploying UCPath at UC Merced, UC Riverside and Associated Students of UCLA.  At the campuses’ request, there will be additional checkpoints leading up to final cutover and additional communications to employees about changes to their earnings statements.  Cutover begins later this month, and Pilot location employees will have access to UCPath on January 2.

UCLA delayed its deployment of UCPath to a later date. The UCPath PMO is now actively replanning with the post-Pilot campuses to develop revised deployment plans and timelines in response to the UCLA change. We will propose options to UCPath governance in November and December and have a go-forward decision in early January 2018.

The University of California is transforming the way we deliver human resource, benefits and payroll services for more than 220,000 employees with UCPath.  By year’s end we will have completed significant work bringing UCPath to another 15,000 employees at Pilot locations. Not long after, the rest of UC’s employees will join in subsequent groups.  We continue to work within the UCPath governance structure to finalize a deployment timeline for all remaining locations by year-end.

UCPath remains the top priority with a successful deployment across all UC locations, and we are confident and excited about the go-live. We will provide updates on our progress and welcome your questions and suggestions.
