06 Jun Legislature passes bill to provide funding for Human Capital Management System

The Nevada State Legislature passed SB550 to provide the Clark County School District (CCSD) with the necessary funding for a Human Capital Management (HCM) System needed to increase transparency and efficiently implement Clark County Schools Achieve, the reorganization of the district. The district’s current payroll system is unable to communicate with its finance and human relations systems, making it almost impossible for CCSD to track employee costs accurately to the departments and schools they serve. This has hindered implementation of strategic budgeting for CCSD’s schools. The district also sees inefficiencies in this system, which takes additional time for managers to learn and navigate because of its age and outdated model. If signed into law by Gov. Brian Sandoval, SB550 will provide the $17 million needed to create a modern HCM System built on a single, centralized database to provide, at a minimum, the core functions of: vacancy management, recruiting, applicant screening and tracking, position and budget control, personnel data, compliance monitoring, performance management, payroll processing, deductions, time and attendance, and benefits.
