A year after installing the PeopleSoft 7 human resources application, the Environmental Protection Agency is upgrading the HR module to the Web-ready Version 8.3.
EPA has a July 2003 target date for rolling out the new HR, time and labor, and payroll modules, said Robert Thorlakson, EPA's human resource functional staff director. He spoke last week at a Washington conference sponsored by the Pleasanton, Calif., company.
All of the agency's 13 locations went live with PeopleSoft 7's HR module last July 1. Thorlakson said EPA used PeopleSoft's support staff instead of a third-party integrator to install the client-server module.
Thorlakson said the version EPA now uses has cut personnel transaction processing time in half.
