CMS and PeopleSoft Support

What is CMS?

Common Management Systems (CMS) is our enterprise implementation of PeopleSoft Financials, PeopleSoft Human Resources, and PeopleSoft Student Administration.  All 23 California State Universities and the Chancellor's Office use PeopleSoft and are hosted in an environment with shared hardware and support.  CMS consists of:
1)  Common Financial System (CFS) - Cal Poly Financials
2)  Human Capital Management (HCM) - Cal Poly Human Resources, Payroll, and Student applications 

What's New?

PeopleSoft Common Financials System Upgrade Apr 15-22, 2014
PeopleSoft Finance will be unavailable during the CFS 9.2 Upgrade.  The outage begins at noon on April 15th, and will commence at approximately 8 AM on April 22nd.  This outage does not affect the Human Resource or Student Finance systems.  Finance Dashboards will remain available, but data will not be refreshed nightly during the outage.  Once the system is available for use on April 22nd, an email notification will be sent out to all Finance Users.


PeopleSoft Common HR System (CHRS) Implementation
The Common HR System (CHRS) Project is currently in the planning stage.  The original target for our campus implementation was April 2015 however this project was put on hold by the Chancellor's Office while they perform an assessment which is expected to last through June 2014.
