Every federal employee deserves to be paid accurately and on time. That is why we have committed to building a new human resources and pay solution that meets the needs of employees. We know the Next Gen HR and pay solution cannot come fast enough but we must take the time to get this right.
Today, I was able to give an important update that the NextGen team will be working with SAP on a pilot to test potential solutions against the real complexities of the government’s HR and pay requirements. As always, we will seek the input of employees and other stakeholders as we move forward.
We have already committed $117 million for the initiative, but most importantly, we are staying open and flexible to any changes that may have to be made along the way. This means we will invest what is necessary to develop an HR and Pay system that will serve the needs of those who rely on it. We want to ensure that we learn from the mistakes of the past and deliver a digital-first solution that is mobile, accessible and innovative.
I would like to congratulate the Next Gen team for reaching this important milestone. Visit our Canada.ca page for all NextGen updates.
