myJob, myTeam, myPurchase, uBASE Unavailable

As part of the final switch-on of the upgraded Human Resources and Finance systems, myJob, myTeam, myPurchase and uBASE will not be available from 5pm on Thursday 12th January 2012 to 8am on Tuesday 17th January 2012. This will mean that NO staff will be able to access these systems and colleagues in the Departments of Human Resources and Finance will not be able to assist with any specific employee record, payroll, pensions, purchase invoice, sales invoice and uBASE reports queries on Friday 13th and Monday 16th January 2012. Staff will however be able to respond to general queries that do not require system access.
In addition:
  • All staff are advised to check their payslips as soon as they are made available so that any queries can be dealt with in plenty of time before pay-day and, if after pay-day, before Friday 13th January 2012. Electronic payslips for January will be available as normal.
  • URMS users will not be able to create a new costing for a research project but will be able to access information that has already been submitted.
  • New staff will not be able to have a UCard or computer account created on Friday 13th or Monday 16th January 2012 if their details have not been fully input to the HR system by 5pm on Thursday 12th January 2012.
The eRecruitment service and eRecruitment approvals are not affected by this upgrade work and will be available to users, as normal, throughout this period.
Following the upgrade, on Tuesday 17th January 2012, myJob, myTeam and uBASE will be returned to normal service. Any changes to these systems as a result of the upgrade will have minimal impact on staff and users should not require any additional training. The upgraded systems will, however, provide a springboard from which to apply a succession of improvements and new features over time.
The myPurchase system will also be returned to service but with an improved look and feel. A range of training materials, and a list of recommended and supported web browsers, for the new look myPurchase will be available from the Department of Finance website and myPurchase and uBASE uSpace. Existing myPurchase users will be sent specific guidance nearer to go-live.
