ALL EMPLOYEES ACTION REQUIRED: FY2018 Parking Renewal Notice and *NEW* Opt-Out Option

Please login to the Automated Parking System and either renew your FY2018 application OR opt-out if you don’t require a System parking permit. This will help Payroll keep track of the employees that don’t need their parking deducted.

Construction Update: Move Begins August 1

The new University of Texas System building is on track for substantial completion on July 12. There will still be some final work to be done in preparation for the moves, so employees won’t have access until they move in. An Open House scheduled for July 31 will provide a preview of the building—come by anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to explore the office floors, tour the Board Room, hang out in the Commons and try out the Wellness Center equipment!

User Beware: PowerPoint Vulnerability

Security researchers have discovered a PowerPoint file that, when opened, will download malware to a computer when a user hovers over a link. While the UT System Administration instance of Microsoft Office has security measures in place to stop the attack from taking place, the measures rely on users responding appropriately to the Security Notice dialog box.

Office Supply Orders now available through eShop via PeopleSoft

Effective immediately, office supply orders from Today’s Business Solutions(TBS)/OfficeMax can be made through the new eShop system via PeopleSoft.

While office supply orders can be made using a Procard through the TBS website through June 23rd, we encourage your department to become familiar with the eShop system at your earliest convenience.

Each department will have their own process for the purchasing of office supplies, so please contact your department’s office supply contact to find out what your process will be with the new eShop system in place.

Plan Change for System Administration Picnic

Plans for the System Administration Picnic, which was planned in place of a System holiday party and scheduled for June 3, have changed. Staff Council and the event committee determined that the timing was not ideal due to end of the school year, family vacations, the potential for a special legislative session and anticipated summer temperatures given the party would be outdoors in the middle of the day.

Wellness Center Equipment List and FAQs

We are all excited to move into our new building and we know that our new spaces spark lots of questions. We have created a document that provides details about the Wellness Center including information about the equipment, locker rooms and additional FAQs your reference. If you have a question not addressed here, please email your question to Kendra at kbolton@utsystem.edu. We will update the list periodically, so please check back!

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage refers to any program owned by a third party that allows you to upload your data using the Internet. An advantage of cloud storage is that you can easily access and synchronize your data from multiple devices anywhere in the world, and you can share your information with anyone you want. This type of online storage can make you more productive, but it also comes with security risks. 

Multiple Direct Deposits

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to announce the ability to set-up multiple direct deposit accounts electronically.  If you’re interested, please use the Self-Service Direct Deposit Job Aid.
