Common Human Resources System (CHRS)

CHRS Project Summary

The Common Human Resources System (CHRS) project is a California State University project with the goal of transforming the Human Resources business processes and practices and consolidating individual campus database instances into a single, centrally managed system. In addition to providing standard business processes and standardized data across the CSU, the project includes expanded services for Faculty Affairs and an HR Data Warehouse.

The CHRS project involves and is dependent upon several related projects that are all being coordinated with the end goal of all campuses live on CHRS by July 2015. This includes:

  • Data Standardization: A dependency and in-scope for CHRS is standardization of the application codes and employment information.  Activities are underway to clean-up the current system data based on the HR requirements defined for personal and employment information. Additional information can be found on the CSU, Chico Standardization Project webpage.
  • System Integration (Data Governance/HECH): A mechanism is being implemented to ensure personal information between HR and Campus Solutions (CS) remains in sync after the applications are split when CHRS is delivered.  A committee to address data governance has been formed to assist with the implementation of the tool and address ongoing support.
