Calif. taps BearingPoint for payroll, HR IT systems

The state of California has awarded a $69 million contract to BearingPoint Inc. to implement a new payroll and human resources IT system, the company announced today.

BearingPoint, based in McLean, Va., will work with SAP Public Services Inc. of Washington to implement the new system. The initiative, which is led by the state controller's office, will replace a 30-year-old computer system programmed in Cobol.

The payroll system will eliminate many paper forms. Instead, state employees will have self-service access to the system, allowing them to manage employment, payroll, benefits, leave accrual, timekeeping and position management data, according to a BearingPoint statement.

BearingPoint will serve as the integrator, with SAP Public Services providing its commercial human resources management system, mySAP, as the foundation of the system. Both companies were selected in independent requests for proposals.
