CAT Project

Project Overview

In preparation for 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 CAT will allow for the distribution of pay plan and merit- based compensation adjustments along with corresponding funding changes. The new tool will be an intermediate solution until the implementation of a new enterprise forecasting and planning system. The CAT will be 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 increase to HRS.

CAT Project Objectives

  1. Develop a system that is able to accept salary and funding information for all staff types (the CAT will replace BDGT, BDGR, and BRATE transactions).
  2. Increase consistency and efficiency by aligning the compensation administration and budgeted processes for university staff and LI/AS/FA staff.
  3. Decrease dual entry between HRS and the mainframe budget system (3270).
  4. Increase efficiency by using spreadsheets to mass initialize the budgeted population and to administer mass changes such as pay plans for all staff types.
