Human Resources is Moving from PeopleAdmin 7 (PA7) to PageUp

Over the last year, Human Resources has been working behind the scenes to move the University from PeopleAdmin 7 (PA7) to PageUp. PageUp will house the Position Management, Application Tracking, and Performance Management modules. Two new modules will be introduced with this move to PageUp -Onboarding and Professional Development.

The Position Management, Applicant Tracking and Onboarding modules will go live December 2, 2019.

In order to be fully operational for the "go live" date of December 2, 2019, Human Resources is implementing a moratorium in PA7 for University Work Force actions. This moratorium will be in effect from November 2, 2019 through December 1, 2019. The last day to submit an action for a University Work Force job description or posting is Friday, November 1, 2019.

Faculty, OPS, and Student positions can still be posted for recruitment in PA7 through this moratorium period. These can be posted during the moratorium period because they are not tied directly to a job description. During this moratorium period, Human Resources will be moving existing job descriptions for University Work Force positions to PageUp.

For Faculty, OPS, and Student postings, a close date of January 17, 2020 will be imposed in PA7. For existing University Work Force open postings in PA7, Human Resources will move the preferred response date or closed date to January 17, 2020 (if the posting does not close prior to this date). If the University Work Force, Faculty, OPS, or Student position has not been filled by the January 17, 2020 date, Human Resources will move the posting to PageUp.

Job Search Document Retention Process Change for 2019

For PeopleAdmin 7 (PA7) job searches that close in, are withdrawn/canceled, or result in a hire in 2019, HR will now ask for and retain the job search records for the required four year retention period. That means for job postings that close in or result in a hire in 2019, hiring officials will no longer be required to retain search documents for the required four years. For all searches that conclude in 2019 (faculty, staff, OPS, student), the hiring official or designee must scan and forward search related documentation to HR. This includes faculty and staff Sunshine Recruitments, closed searches that utilized an advisory committee, and those searches that only utilized the hiring official to make the hiring decision. Documents should be emailed to Hiring officials are still required to retain search documents for job postings that were withdrawn/canceled or resulted in a hire prior to 2019.
