Personnel systems Technical Refresh Project

The Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister for Defence Personnel, Alan

Griffin, today announced a contract has been signed with UXC Limited to

provide a technical refresh to Defence’s personnel systems.

Mr Griffin said, “I am pleased to announce that Defence will be undertaking a

Technical Refresh Project, to update the technology platform supporting

Defence’s Human Resources Management System (PMKeyS), which will also

involve the integration of Defence’s Reserve payment system,


“The project is a key component in the Integrated Master Plan for the

Personnel Systems Modernisation and HR Shared Services Reform, and

supports the objectives of the Defence Strategic Reform Program and Pay

Remediation Task Force.

“The project will address the current technology risks associated with the

PMKeyS and CENRESPAYII systems and ensure continuity of the personnel

and pay functions.

“The project will also provide a modern, stable technology platform, on which

to build the longer-term solution for personnel systems, enabling Defence’s

business process reform initiatives and supporting reform in the Workforce

and Shared Services Stream of Defence’s Strategic Reform Program,” Mr

Griffin said.

UXC Limited will commence work on the Technical Refresh Project in May

2010.  Red Rock Consulting, a wholly owned subsidiary of UXC Limited, and

Oracle specialist organisation will deliver the $16 million project.  It is

anticipated that this will be completed in the first half of 2012.  The project

includes an early replacement of the outdated Reserve payment system in

July 2011.

Australian industry will work with Defence in updating the technology platform

and in training Defence users of the updated PMKeyS system.
