Enterprise Payroll and Time & Attendance Modernization

ThHawaiiPay Logoe Enterprise Payroll and Time & Attendance Modernization (HawaiiPay) project will overhaul and modernize how the State of Hawaii processes payroll serving more than 75,000 full- and part-time employees statewide. Currently, the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) provides paychecks and deposits to employees across the legislative, judicial and executive branches (including the Department of Education, Hawaii Health Systems Corporation, and University of Hawaii), as well as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

Led by the DAGS Accounting Division in coordination with the Office of Enterprise Technology Services, the HawaiiPay project will address the significant risks associated with maintaining the current 40-year-old system, which is fragile, inflexible, manual and paper-intensive. The state is also finding it increasingly challenging to hire and retain individuals in roles critical to sustaining the antiquated processes and systems now in place. New processes and technologies will provide modern functionality, efficiencies, security and disaster recovery, while improving system performance and reliability, including timeliness and accuracy of payments.

The project will be completed in two phases: 1) the Payroll Phase and 2) the Time & Attendance Phase.
