A Message from Mark Cianca


We are nearing the final stretch of preparation for UCPath deployment at UCLA and UC Santa Barbara. System and process testing is complete, and this month project teams turn their attention to user testing and a dress rehearsal. These activities will ensure all is ready for cutover activities that will take most of September. Teams at each campus are delivering training and communications to prepare employees for the employee portal and UCPath operations starting in late September.

In the months of operations following the UCPath deployment at UC Merced, UC Riverside and ASUCLA, we validated what works and identified what needs to improve. Informed by production metrics and support, the UCPath Center is proactively tuning processes and staffing to make the transition more seamless and better serve our employees - those transitioning to UCPath next as well as those already using UCPath.

A dedicated team at the UCPath Center is focused on improving operations and service delivery. This effort has eliminated several manual processes and is streamlining business processes at the UCPath Center and our production locations.

Building upon what we learned with our first campus deployments, we are excited about deploying UCPath at UCLA and UC Santa Barbara, which further sets the stage for the two final deployments. Both Deployment 1 (ANR, UC Berkeley, UC Davis and UC Irvine) and Deployment 2 (UC San Diego, UCSF, UC Santa Cruz, UC Hastings and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab) activities are progressing steadily, and we look forward to sharing more details about these deployments as we get closer. Please visit the “UCPath on Campus” page where you can find links to local UCPath websites and find out how each campus is preparing for UCPath. We welcome your questions and suggestions.
