PPS Transition

PPS Retirement
Welcome to the final days of PPS! As we continue UCPath stabilization, PPS is now an archive and routine payroll activities are happening in UCPath. We’ll keep users apprised of the retirement timeline as UCOP provides more detailed information.

Just as PPS was a sea-change for UCSC, UCPath brings much-needed improvements to individual employees and the campus overall. Change can be unsettling, but the forethought, team work and persistence of all those involved has made the transition a success. We’ll eventually bid a fond farewell to PPS, but the data will remain available in 2020 and beyond. As always, please contact us at pps_office@ucsc.edu with any questions.
