From the Dean's Desk - April 8, 2020

Dear GT Computing colleagues,

Georgia Tech Dean of Computing Charles Isbell

It’s Wednesday, so I think this must be a good time to talk about OneUSG. I know the transition into OneUSG Connect has been tough for everyone. Moving to a completely new way of doing critical tasks would always be difficult, and of course, it is made more difficult by our current circumstances. 

Still, I am pleased to report that the Institute has made it through our first biweekly payroll—that represents more than 4,100 employee actions, and involves our student employees and UTAs as well—in the new system. Most biweekly employees have direct deposit and can expect to see their pay show up in their accounts this Friday. For the few who still receive paper checks, those checks will be mailed to your home address today.

In the run-up to the payroll, we did see a few minor errors popping up here and there. So, please log in to OneUSG Connect and go into the Employee Self-Service section to check and confirm that you reported your hours correctly. Supervisors, if you are certifying time, please check on your reports. We would like to deal with any problems as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I see that we are starting to settle into a new socially-distanced routine. I don’t really like the term “new normal”, but it is wonderful to see that we are still doing the business of the College and supporting each other. Many thanks to everyone for adapting.
