Online Payroll and Personnel System (OLPPS)

Jannelle Fong's picture

The Online Payroll and Personnel System (OLPPS) is the university's human resources and payroll system and contains employee demographic, employment, and payroll data, both current and historical. The primary purpose of PPS is to ensure that all employees are paid properly and in a timely fashion and to support payroll and human resource-related reporting requirements of both the university and external agencies.

The users of OLPPS are campus central office personnel (e.g., payroll, human resources, benefits), departmental personnel staff and other authorized campus staff.

OLPPS accommodates the payroll and personnel requirements of the University.  Use this system to query employee records, payroll and information related to accounts and funds.  

OLPPS includes subsystems such as:

  • EDB Inquiry
  • Payroll Audit Record Inquiry
  • Departmental Inquiry and
  • Inquiry into the Legacy Account Fund Profile


Access to OLPPS is granted through your departmental Access Administrators using the autoAccess application.

OLPPS is accessible online using IBM Websphere Host On-Demand, hosted by UC Office of the President (UCOP).
