OneUSG

What is OneUSG?

OneUSG is a systemwide initiative to develop and implement a consistent approach to policies, procedures and technology solutions that benefit the University System of Georgia (USG), in an effort to reduce costs, streamline processes, and have uniform guidelines with centralized support. The first priority for the OneUSG initiative is to bring all institutions onto one system to manage USG human resources activities, benefits and compensation.

What is OneUSG Connect?

OneUSG Connect is an application that is intended to help an organization manage and maintain its workforce. The major components OneUSG Connect – payroll services, talent management, human resources management, time and attendance, and benefits administration – are unified and integrated into a single system.

VSU will implement Phase I of OneUSG Connect July 2017. This phase will replace ADP and all employees will use the system to record and submit time, absences and to access, review and update personal information including direct deposit, paystubs and benefits. Additional functionality will be implemented during Phase II scheduled to begin January 2018. Want to learn more? Download this document.

  • It allows for Single Sign-On (SSO) using VSU credentials eliminating the need to remember a separate username and password.
  • It can be used on mobile devices and will allow employees to submit and/or approve absences on the go.
