HawaiiPay: Payroll modernization system delayed 2 months

First paychecks in the new system have been pushed back from Nov. 5 to Jan. 4

A few members have been asking questions about the State of Hawaii project to modernize the state payroll system. Some updates have gone out to employees from the Department of Education (DOE) and charter schools, who purchase services from the DOE, about the launch date.  These notices explain that employees would have to take some actions related to the new payroll system. The main action would require employees to login to the HawaiiPay system online and provide their direct deposit information.  This information is key to preventing delays or problems with employee direct deposits. The system was originally scheduled to be implemented in October with Nov. 5 paycheck being issued under the new system. 

However, just as HSTA was set to help provide our own reminders, the state announced that HawaiiPay implementation for the DOE and charter schools with DOE payroll services will have a delayed implementation.   

The State of Hawaii has determined a schedule extension was necessary to allow for additional testing before going live on the new Hawaii Information Portal (HIP). The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) and the University of Hawaii concurred. 

Currently, the delay is pushed back to implementation in December with the first paycheck under the new system to be issued January 4, 2019.
