Introduction to CAPPS HR/Payroll


This lesson introduces CAPPS HR/Payroll.


  1. A brief overview of ProjectONE.


    ProjectONE is the name of the project that will:

    - Implement CAPPS for deploying agencies

    - Replace disparate computer systems with ONE centralized system

    - Provide ONE set of books for the state.


    ONE stands for Our New Enterprise.

    Step 1
  2. A brief overview of CAPPS (Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System).


    - CAPPS includes both Financial and HR/Payroll modules (or applications).


    - It is more cost effective over time than current agency and statewide systems.


    - CAPPS will improve accuracy and functionality.

    Step 2
  3. Statewide Systems Integration.


    Several systems will pass information back and forth with CAPPS.


    This includes: USAS, SPRS, SPA, TINS, USPS, and TX SmartBuy systems.

    Step 3
  4. CAPPS HR/Payroll integrates with:


    - CAPPS Financials (for accounting)

    - ERS (for Leave Balances and Terminations)

    - TINS (for payments)

    - SPRS and ERS (Financial Data)

    - USAS and Treasury

    Step 4
  5. Core Modules include: Position Management, Time & Labor, Payroll, Human Resources, and Benefits.


    Non-Core Modules are Recruiting, Learning Management, and Performance Management.

    Step 5
  6. An integrated system makes time reporting easy.


    Time entries come from both Timesheet Entries and Scheduled Time, and will update a CAPPS database table. After processing the Reported Time Table, the Time entries are ready to integrate with Payroll.

    Step 6
  7. An Integrated System Simplifies Data Entry


    Integration allows Payroll to use data stored in both the HR and the Time & Labor modules to automatically build pay sheets and accurately calculate employee payments. These payments will comply with statutory and CPA payroll policy requirements.


    This eliminates the need to enter duplicate information into two systems.
