HRIT Refresh

The HRIT Refresh project is responsible for our upcoming Capital HR upgrade and our new time and attendance (T&A) system. This effort, led by HHS’s HR Solutions division, was formally referred to as the “Hire to Retire Modernization Program” or “H2R.”

Over the next 3 years HHS will upgrade our Enterprise Human Resources and Payroll (EHRP)/Capital HR system to PeopleSoft Human Capital Management 9.2, and will include PeopleSoft 9.2’s T&A functionality.

The system will be called Enterprise Human Capital Management (EHCM). EHCM will streamline the current HRIT structure and provide HHS employees and managers with one system for workforce management and T&A.

DFAS will continue to be our payroll provider.

EHCM Overview

EHCM will be a more user friendly system that will include:

  • Full position management
  • One HR, time and leave record for each employee
  • Accurate data, pay and benefits records
  • Informed human capital decision making
  • Streamlined interfaces all in a secure cloud environment.
