Enterprise Payroll and Time & Attendance Modernization

ThHawaiiPay Logoe State of Hawaii’s Enterprise Payroll and Time & Attendance Modernization (HawaiiPay) project will overhaul and modernize how the state processes payroll serving more than 75,000 full- and part-time employees statewide.

Led by the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS), in collaboration with the Office of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS), 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.

DAGS Central Payroll currently provides paychecks and deposits to employees across the legislative, judicial and executive branches (including the Department of Education and the University of Hawaii), as well as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation.
