The Central Payroll System (CPS) is a common payroll processing and management system. It generates payrolls for 82 customer agencies, using specified pay schedules, for each pay period in a calendar year. It is on-line and standardizes the processes and procedures pertaining to payroll. It is offered for use by both code and non-code Illinois State agencies and is administered by the Enterprise Business Application Systems (EBAS) Team.
CPS averages 160,000+ transactions per month. By offering a common application such as CPS to its customers, BCCS is able to reduce the costs associated with individual duplication of payroll system operations among its various customers. CPS customers also benefit from enhanced flexibility and report processing.
You can help manage the use of CPS by adopting the following practices:
- Ensure CPS use is business related.
- Ensure users log out when not needing to be on-line with CPS.
- Do not share protected information without requisite approvals.
