Progress To Date
Replace 50-year-old paper and manual process to provide greater functionality and efficiencies in serving 75,000+ full- and part-time employees statewide.
On Jan. 10, 2019, Gov. David Ige announced that all state employees have successfully transitioned to a modern, efficient payroll system, transforming the way the state and its employees conduct business.
On the first pay date of the year on Jan. 4, 2019, the PeopleSoft Payroll system issued 70,771 payments to 66,182 employees, as there are individuals issued pay for multiple positions — including those in the final group from the Department of Education and the University of Hawaii. The first group of 1,300 employees successfully moved to the new system in May 2018, and a second, larger group of 22,000 employees was deployed in August 2018.
“This is a major milestone for the state. For 50 years we’ve been paying employees with a labor and time-intensive, paper-based, manual process run on a legacy mainframe system. The diligent work and support of many employees across all state agencies have made this transition to the new system a reality. We also appreciate the support from the unions, banking community and third-party agents during the transition.” – Gov. David Y. Ige
