System Access and Data Entry Deadlines for Pitt Worx (Department Administrators/Talent Center users)

As you are aware, Monday, January 4, 2021 will mark our first day in Pitt Worx, and we remain committed to providing a positive launch experience for the whole community.

We are quickly approaching our launch date, and we must all take deliberate action to ensure employee data currently in PRISM is accurately converted into Pitt Worx. Inaccurate data conversion may have many ramifications, including paycheck miscalculations, disrupted connection to University systems, and may hinder timely employee benefit enrollment.

We request your close attention and adherence to the data entry deadlines and restrictions in various systems. The project team will be working zealously over the next few weeks to ensure secure transfer of current data, precise functionality of the new cloud system, and of course, accurate pay for all employees. Please note there will be no access to systems by anyone during the freeze period beginning at 5:00 p.m. ET on 12/18/2020. Access to PRISM TRKS after 12/18/2020 will be available ONLY to submit or approve timecards by 12:00 p.m. ET (noon) on 12/23/2020, or review pay statements and check registers through 12/31/2020. Submitting requests by these deadlines does NOT guarantee processing before the Winter Recess period.

The data entry and system access deadlines are available for review online and we ask that you share within your areas for all employees: faculty, staff, students, All-Temps, and other paid positions.

Over the next few weeks, various project teams will be in contact with OHR Partners and Talent Center users, as well as the University community, regarding training, resources, and support for Pitt Worx. More details are forthcoming, and additional announcements will be made as needed.
