RESERVISTS will benefit from
a PMKeyS Technical Refresh
Project set to make online self-
service the way of the future.
Beginning in mid-2011, phase
one of the technical refresh will
see the current reserve payroll
system, CENRESPAYII, replaced
with significantly more effi-
cient system, PeopleSoft Global
Reservists will immediately
benefit by receiving pay fortnight-
ly instead of monthly, aligning
with other ADF and Defence APS
The reserve payroll will also
be fully integrated with PMKeyS,
providing improvements in trans-
action processing and data quality.
The new system will be com-
plemented by business processes
familiar to CENRESPAYII users,
but screen layouts and capabilities
will align with modern web-based
technology, significantly improv-
ing the user experience.
Director of Personnel Systems
Project Delivery, Matthew
Radisich, said the benefits of
using the latest technology meant
the system would be more main-
tainable and configurable.
"By introducing this new tech-
nology we provide the ground-
work for delivery of future capa-
b ility and enhancements for
reservists," Mr Radisich said.
"When we go into Phase 2 in
2012, we'll be able to provide
reservists with the convenience
of online payslips and the ability
to record attendances online using
"We can then more read-
