CAT Project

CAT Overview

With the implementation of HR Design and UPS, UWSA HR, UWSA budget, and the Service Center have worked together to create a new solution within PeopleSoft HRS called the Compensation Administration Tool (CAT). The Compensation Administration Tool allows for the distribution of pay plan and merit- based compensation adjustments along with corresponding funding changes. The new tool is an intermediate solution until the implementation of a new enterprise forecasting and planning system. The Compensation Administration Tool is accompanied by a standard business process which will prepare the institutions for the future deployment of a new budgeting system to support scenario-based analysis, forecasting, and the delivery of rate increases to HRS.

Training Resources
