|Letter from President Kelley|
Dear UND Colleague:
I am pleased to announce that as of July 31, the PeopleSoft Human Resource Management System (HRMS) Self-Service Module will be available to UND faculty and staff. In addition to supporting the University GREEN initiative, this service provided by the North Dakota University System makes the following features available online from any computer with an Internet connection:
· Update home address, home phone number, home email address, cell phone number, emergency contacts, ethnic group, data privacy flag, direct deposit, W-4 tax information
· Request a reprint of a W-2 and a life event change packet
· View pay stubs dating back to 2004
· View flex/comp balances and claims
· View salary history
To prepare for accessing the HRMS Self-Service module, it is necessary for you to activate your U-mail account, since that is where your Self-Service UserID and Password will be sent. A U-mail address looks like this: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you are already using U-mail on a daily basis, no action is needed. If not, you must activate your U-mail account. Please activate your U-mail account no later than Friday, July 24.
Before you can activate your U-mail account, you must "claim" your account by going to: http://www.und.edu/dept/itss/. From this site, comprehensive documentation and contact information for the UND Help Desk (777-2222) are available. Step-by-step instructions are also available on the Payroll Office website at: http://www.und.edu/dept/payroll/html/employeecenter.htm.
If you are using another preferred email address, such as GroupWise, then you must be sure that your U-mail account is activated and set up to forward U-mail messages to your preferred email address. If you still need additional assistance, contact the UND Help Desk at 777-2222.
You will receive more information on the HRMS Self-Service Module in the near future.
