Why are we implementing CHRS?

CHRS is based on PeopleSoft 9.2 with modifications to make it work for campuses in the CSU system. These modifications have been designed by experts from all campuses in the CSU system and are being built by the Chancellor’s Office. Built for the CSU, by the CSU.

PeopleSoft 9.2 Plus CSU Customization equals CHRS

Prior to CHRS:

23 different slices of cake

23 different versions of software across the CSU system, which is difficult and costly to maintain

Campuses using different HR processes

No common way of doing business or sharing of resources

PeopleSoft 9.0 is not supported anymore

With CHRS:

Layered cake

All campuses on one common system (PeopleSoft 9.2)

Efficient and more cost-effective

Perform HR processes in a common way and can support other campuses

Positions the CSU to consider cloud-based technologies in the future
