A major inter-ministry project – and the cornerstone of modernising human resources in government
The HRIS, built by the ONP around its future Payroll application, is designed to provide all client ministries with a unique, shared IT system which complies with the aims of LOLF FINANCIAL legislation as it applies to government human resources and the modernisation of the French Civil Service.
In terms of modernising the civil service’s information systems, the ONP has the following missions:
- designing and implementing the new information system to handle civil servants’ pay,
- designing, developing, maintaining and circulating the common specifications and reference documents with which government human resources information systems must comply, as well as ensuring compliance with these standards, enshrined in the civil service human resources “RH-FPE Core” document.
Ultimately, the ONP will provide payroll services for over 3 million civil servants. Based on an HRAccess solution, the system will be operated by the ONP on a SAAS (software as a service)2 basis for 65,000 users of 7 ministries, including the first two pilot ministries.
“Our expertise in the business of government human resources and HRAccess software within complex government environments is a real plus, allowing us to design a unique HRIS which can cater for the needs of each client ministry whilst taking into account the particularities of each.,” says Olivier Vallet, CEO of Steria France.
