What We Produce

Stanislaus County implemented the Oracle PeopleSoft HRMS System in 1999 (Version 7). In 2002, the System was upgraded to Version 8 SP1. In 2007, the System was again upgraded to Version 8.9. Today, we are using Version 9.1. 113,000 checks/advice notices were produced back in 2009.

PeopleSoft Self Service automates and simplifies the process of managing your information. You now have direct access to your own Personal, Benefits, Payroll and Training information.

Thanks to our Direct-Deposit service, we only need to produce about 150 physical biweekly paychecks in 2015!
