University of California, UCPath Project
The University of California has over 220,000 students and 200,000 faculty and staff, across ten campuses. In addition to classrooms and labs, UC has dozens of academic resources such as museums, concert halls, art galleries, botanical gardens, observatories and marine centers, which are also used by the community. UC manages three US Department of Energy national laboratories. The 2014/15 current UC operating budget is $25.8 billion.
The UCPath Center is located in Riverside, California, near the UC Riverside campus. The UCPath System will replace the 30-year old payroll/ personnel system, which no longer meets the evolving operational needs of UC. It will feature a single payroll, benefits, human resources, and academic personnel solution for over 200,000 UC employees system-wide, supported by 400-500 employees.
Chazey Partners worked with the UCPath Center staff and leadership in order to deliver a business continuity plan for the UCPath Center over three phases of work: development, approval and implementation (testing/training/rollout). The foundation of this work was the business impact analysis (assessing the sensitivity of the business at the sub-process level to a disruption) and the risk analysis (identifying, prioritizing and mitigating risks for the UCPath Center).
