The Future of HR Systems: Changes Are on the Way

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will be moving to new human resources (HR) systems that will replace myPay, the Integrated Time and Attendance System (ITAS), and Capital HR (EHRP) with interconnected systems. HHS is calling this effort the HR Modernization Program, also referred to as the National Finance Center (NFC) Migration. HHS anticipates the systems migration will occur in the fall of 2015.

The new NFC systems is a suite of integrated systems offering enhanced functionality, reduced costs, improved data accuracy, and standardized processes throughout HHS.

The NIH teams are working hard to ensure that the data housed in NIH’s HR systems is current and accurate so there will be a smooth transition when the new systems deploy. Internally, the NIH HR Modernization Program Team has delivered presentations to administrative officers, executive officers, and other groups to keep NIH staff informed of this effort. Volunteers from institutes and centers have also been selected to participate with HR staff on several of the subproject teams. Cross-NIH involvement helps ensure that all of NIH’s needs are represented.

As NIH gets closer to the implementation date, the HR Modernization Program Team will ensure that NIH is thoroughly prepared for the new systems. The team will provide plenty of change-management tools for NIH staff such as Web sites, training, and user guides, in addition to ongoing communications.
