The Onboarding landing page has been enhanced with the following:
- Newly hired faculty members will now receive a "Faculty Handbook" to review and acknowledge in a similar way to how non faculty members review an "Employee Handbook".
- A new announcement worklet will display I-9 and state / local tax form reminders, as well as a link to an on-boarding job aid to assist new employees should they require assistance.
A notification was generated to Timekeepers that stated they had hours that were not approved. Please disregard this message. The GMS Core Team is working to correct the issue.
GMS will now enforce reporting for time off in 1/4 hour increments for all plans. Additionally, the maximum that you will be able to submit for a day is 12 hours.
New employees will receive an email notification on their first day of work directing them to sign up for Benefits Orientation. They will also receive reminders to enroll in benefits after 30 and 45 days of employment, if they have not yet done so. As an employee approaches 60 days of employment without enrolling in benefits, their Manager and HR Contact will be notified.
On July 19, 2012, Georgetown University kicked-off a project to implement the GMS financial system as a replacement for the PeopleSoft financials and financial access+ applications. The GMS finance system will include the functionalities of general ledger, procurement and payment, grants management, business assets, and endowment accounting.
This new and modern financial system will offer new opportunities for capturing and reporting on the University’s financial activities, and Georgetown will always be running the current version of the product. New automated procedures will simplify transaction processing by eliminating most of the paper form processing, providing electronic approvals, and the ability to attach pertinent documents to transactions in the system.
The project go-live date is set for July 1, 2014 presenting the University with an exciting but busy year ahead. The GMS system belongs to all of us, and we must all work together to configure a system that will best support Georgetown for years to follow.
Please use this website as a resource for the financial system to find information on project updates, resources, system functionalities, and ultimately user training and help.
Together we can simplify our workday!
