The HRConnect system is an enterprise web-based HR system, built on PeopleSoft commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software, and is the foundation of the Treasury SSC’s comprehensive suite of solutions. HRConnect transforms core back-office HR functions, moving them from processing-centric paper or legacy systems, to a strategic-centric capability enabled through its commercial software underpinning.
Additionally, self-service components of the software fundamentally transform the standard government HR service delivery model, putting additional information, services and processes (i.e., personal data, position management, requests for personnel action, recruitment, reporting, etc.) directly in the hands of managers and employees, and HR Professionals. HRConnect features/functionality includes:
Personnel Action Requests (PARs)

The PDS solution can also integrate with agency systems to provide an agency with authoritative identity data and to receive identity data (e.g., email address) from an agency. As a result, the PDS solution streamlines identity lifecycle management while establishing identity data as an enterprise resource. Separately Priced.
Entrance on Duty System (EODS)
EODS is a public facing web-based application that provides newly hired federal employees the opportunity to begin the onboarding process prior to their official start date.

Elimination of the manual reentry of sensitive information improves data quality, and gives new employees and HR Professionals a head start in the onboarding processes. The EODS integration with the HRConnect system, further streamlines new hire processing; eliminating the tedious manual entry of new hire data. Separately Priced
