HS Time Study Enhancement and EMACS Integration

San Bernardino County, CA
Program Year: 2019

Time Study Reports track time worked by individual employees on various social service programs. Completed reports submitted to the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) are used to apportion costs to all welfare programs. It is essential that Time Studies are complete and accurate to ensure proper funding for the administration of all Human Services (HS) programs. HS departments complete Time Studies using the same application software. Users are expected to complete a Time Study entry daily and/or cyclically. The county payroll system, Employee Management and Compensation System (EMACS) application integrates the business processes of Human Resources (HR) and Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector (ATC) to manage employees, their pay and benefits. Integration of EMACS within the Time Study System application facilitates accurate time accounting and creates transparency between both applications. This promotes staff accountability for correct entry and guarantees timely report submission. When combined, this allows for better time management, resulting in effective customer service delivery. Integration also ensures correct Time Study reporting and subsequent program allocation.
