Enterprise Project Management Office

The Enterprise Project Management Office oversees the day-to-day operations of Penn State’s enterprise-wide projects, such as the replacement of the student information system (LionPATH), HR-payroll (WorkLion), and the financial system (IBIS).

Project LionPATH is the multi-year initiative to replace Penn State’s existing student information system. The project will be completed by December 2016, and will then move to the post-implementation phase in early 2017. LionPATH manages all of the student-related administrative processes of the University including admissions, registration, grade reporting, billing, financial aid disbursement, and graduation.

WorkLion, the multi-year initiative to replace Penn State’s legacy HR-payroll system with a cloud-based system by Workday, began in early 2015 and is scheduled to be in production in June 2017. Workday will provide more functionality, flexibility, and the ability for the University to scale our enterprise systems including payroll, benefits and time tracking.

The financial system (IBIS) replacement project is slated to begin in 2018 and to be completed by summer 2020. The goals of the new system are to provide an intuitive solution to effectively plan, budget, manage, and steward the University’s assets and resources to meet the expectations of internal and external stakeholders.
