Program History
  • Session Law 2001-491 directed the Office of the State Controller (OSC) to determine the feasibility of developing and implementing a new business infrastructure for the State. The systems included in the State Business Infrastructure Study (SBIS) supported the following business functions: financial management, cash management, payroll, human resources, budget management, procurement, treasury, retirement, and revenue accounting.
  • The study concluded that continued use of the current business systems may adversely impact the fiscal integrity of state government, as well as the efficiency and effectiveness of its operations. Therefore, the State decided upon a replacement strategy that carefully weighs the risks of potential system failures with the current State budget condition and State funding priorities. The strategy involves an extended implementation approach with the first focus on replacing the Human Resources and Payroll Systems. Ratified Senate Bill 991 appropriates funds to implement this strategy.
  • Both summary and detail report information can be accessed on the SBIP Website which is located on the Office of State Controller web site: http://www.ncosc.net/SBIP/SBIP_Index.html

what are the current risks and why should we act now
What are the current risks and why should we act now?
  • Risk of payroll system failure resulting in delayed payments to over 80,000 state employees
  • Retiring HR/payroll system support staff
    • Inability to maintain current systems due to retirement of system support staff
    • Limited resources with the knowledge required to maintain existing technology
  • Future labor market competition and an aging state workforce
    • Current recruitment and retention capabilities need to be improved to address forecasted labor and skills shortages associated with retiring baby-boomers
    • Next generation of employees will demand online visibility to HR and payroll details
  • Implementation of new system will be a multi-year effort
    • The risks associated with the current systems will increase each year until the outdated systems are replaced
  • North Carolina is lagging behind state and private sector systems and process trends

jad session highlights career and succession planning
JAD Session HighlightsCareer and Succession Planning
  • Process Overview
    • Career planning is centered on developing an employee's competencies, and helping to prepare an employee for the next steps in his/her career.
    • Succession Planning involves looking at future vacancies in the organization and identifying steps the organization can take to prepare. It can include looking to fill a specific future vacancy or identifying activities to mitigate a general loss of multiple key skill leadership positions.
  • Improvement Opportunities
    • Conduct organized career and succession planning across the state
    • A standardized and exhaustive list of skills that span across all agencies
    • A consolidated procedure and process throughout the State for career and succession planning as it currently seems to be fragmented and informal
    • A statewide competency modeling effort rather than independent agency efforts
  • Potential Barriers
    • Moving to competency based hierarchy will be difficult
    • Allowing employees to enter their own skills may cause employees to ‘over-inflate’ skills when they are directly related to compensation level

  • Benefits
    • Ability to identify individuals within the State who may be well suited to fill upcoming leadership gaps
    • Allows employee to enter skills that are not related to a specific job, which will empower both employees and managers in locating needed proficiencies

    • Positions the State as a competitive employer, particularly with the coming labor shortage
    • Allows HR to function as it is truly intended

    • Enables accountability on the use of training dollars

    • Mandatory courses can be standardized
    • Pooling of trainers to teach standardized courses
  • Potential Barriers
    • Access to a computer or high speed networks
    • Supervisor’s fear of employees having too much independence
    • Elected officials and political appointees may fear the loss of control due to ESS/MSS
  • Benefits
    • Improved decision making
    • Comprehensive training record
    • Real-time data
    • Employees have direct access to manage their own careers
    • Training is linked with new competency-driven pieces

what is change management
What is Change Management?
  • Change Management, as it pertains to projects like this, is primarily about:
    • Building and sustaining a leadership coalition to guide successful project completion
    • Reducing long-term costs of the project
    • Fully understanding and softening the impact of changes to affected employees
    • Ensuring that behavioral changes brought about by the project are “made to stick”
    • Bringing about higher organizational performance as a result of the project
    • Reducing risks related to:
      • Disruptions in productivity and customer service
      • Missing project time and budget targets
      • Misalignment of expectations
  • Metaphorically, Change Management is…
    • The grease that makes the project (and the resulting new business processes) run more smoothly, and
    • The glue that gives the project a sustainable, valuable impact
