Location Access Initiative

Completed as of September 2022

The goal of the Location Access Initiative is to provide transactors more visibility within the UCPath portal.

Why are we implementing this project?

This project will:

  • Provide more visibility within the UCPath portal as well as access to tables in RI
    • Example:
      • See when EEs are enrolled in direct deposit
      • Access to the Benefit Plan tables
      • Allow locations to see benefit summaries for Life and AD/D Benefits, Disability Benefits etc.

What is the timeline?

Project kickoff: February 2, 2022

The Location Access Initiative is reviewed by the project team on a weekly basis.

Location Access Initiative Preparation

What do transactors need to do to prepare?

Transactors need to plan ahead, note deadline dates and mark their calendars. Some transactors/SMEs are already working with the project team to submit requests for any additional access they would benefit from.

Are there any actions required by departments?

If you need access to UCPath make sure to complete all required training, and exams and request access through ServiceNow.
