HR Classification and Recruitment Document System (HR CARDS)

Overview

HR CARDS houses NIH standard Position Descriptions (PDs) and related classification and recruitment documents. This system enables managers and HR Specialists to retrieve PDs and corresponding documents to facilitate and simplify the hiring process. HR CARDS provides consistency for the hiring process by allowing for the standardization, streamlining, and expediting of the classification and recruitment process for HR Specialists, administrative personnel and managers.

News and Updates

HR CARDS is currently being rebuilt to include increased functionality and ease of use. We are pleased to announce that the new system will launch during the third quarter of FY 2014 (between April and June 2014)!

Our system developers are currently wrapping up the development of the new system. The next phase in the process is User Acceptance Testing, which will take place at the end of March, 2014. Once testing is complete, system developers will implement necessary changes to prepare the system for the roll out.

Reminders for all HR CARDS users:

  • The current system will remain available while the new system is being built
  • Once the new system is implemented, the URL for the current HR CARDS system (http://hrweb.psc.gov/pdlibrary_nih/) will be unavailable and a URL for the new HR CARDS will be provided on this page. Users will need to update their favorites/bookmarks to include the updated URL
  • The new system will employ Single Sign On (SSO) technology, enabling users to log in with their NIH user ID and password or NIH PIV card and PIN, allowing for better system security

Reminder for HR users:

As part of the last phase of the development process, beginning Friday, March 21, 2014, there will be a freeze on new access requests for HR CARDS. The freeze period will remain in effect until the new HR CARDS system has been made available to users. During the freeze period:

  • HR CARDS will not be visible as a selection on the WiTS HR Systems Access (HRSA) Form and no request for new, modified or deleted access will be possible.
  • WiTS Super Users will be notified when the WiTS HRSA form has been modified to resume accepting HRSA requests for HR CARDS.

What does this mean to HR CARDS users?

  • The current system will remain available while the new system is being built
  • The URL for the new HR CARDS system will change during the third quarter of FY 2014
  • The new system will employ Single Sign On (SSO) technology, enabling users to log in with their NIH user ID and password or NIH PIV card and PIN, allowing for better system security
  • Classification and recruitment documents will have a streamlined view for easier navigation
  • The sorting feature will be more user-friendly
