Recruitment Management System - Phase II Implementation

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Recruitment Management System (RMS) Project Team

In September 2005 the Staff Human Resources implemented Phase I of the Recruitment Management System (RMS) which replaced the manual paper-based process utilized to facilitate Open and Campus-Only recruitments. Phase II implementation is scheduled to begin May 15, 2008. This roll out will include Non-Recruitment and Waiver of Recruitment processing capabilities as well as general system modifications. Use of Phase II functionality will be implemented in three stages outlined below:

* May 15: General system modifications.

* June 2-22: Non-Recruitment/Waiver of Recruitment Pilot Program.

* June 23: Remaining campus units will begin using RMS to process Non-Recruitment and Waiver of Recruitment actions.

A series of one hour briefings is scheduled for May 2-12. These briefings will provide an overview of the general system modifications coming on-line May 15. Attendance is voluntary, but strongly encouraged for individuals who routinely use the system to facilitate Open and Campus-Only recruitments. Space is limited, so enroll early by calling the Staff HR Employment Office at 459-2009. Information will be repeated in each offering, so attendance at one briefing is sufficient.

Non-recruitment/Waiver of Recruitment Pilot Program participants will receive additional information in the coming weeks. Briefing schedule and project updates are available at, Questions should be directed to or System Administrator, Jean Fargo at 459-5444.

Thank you,
