Electronic Personnel Action Change (ePAC) Help
ePAC is designed to electronically process Personnel Action Changes (PACs) including Job and Position and Distribution changes. The backbone of ePAC is electronic workflow. Workflow guides PACs through the system from creation to completion gathering the required signatures along the way. ePAC reduces paper, time to completion and ensures effort certification and FLSA compliance.
Leave actions can now be processed in ePAC
As of September 17, ePAC users can place or return employees from leave directly in ePAC using the new options in the Actions drop down menu, instead of filing a paper PAF form.
Changes to ePAC Screen Design
As part of the automation and simplification efforts for HR systems, we are pleased to introduce a new look for the ePAC system. You will see this change when you log in to ePAC beginning January 3, 2013.
This change incorporates a navigation bar across the top of the page to select the type of action you wish to perform, a menu in the left column of actions you can take within a module, and the worklist for any pending transactions in a module.
We’ve also incorporated a few enhancements and changes with this implementation:
- A new Job & Position (JPC) PAC search function. Now, all searches are initiated from the Navigation Bar.
- A new search option by PACID. The PACID is an internally-generated control number and uniquely identifies a single transaction. This is available for both Job & Position Change PACs and Distribution PACs.
- A new ePAC Viewer Role for all modules of ePAC. This role is designed to allow view-only access to all ePAC modules and data. Read more about this role and how to make assignments on the Privilege Management website.
- A worklist scroll bar, replacing pagination. When you select a name from your worklist, the system will return you to the same place in the worklist when you complete your transaction.
- A simplified the Job & Position landing page. The Distribution worklist has been removed.
- The “Do you want to do an EDC” question has been removed from the Job & Position module.
You’ll also notice the navigation bar includes a Payment Change header in the navigation bar. We’re excited to announce the next phase of HR automation, the ePAC Additional Pay module, will be introduced in late winter/early spring of 2013.
