Kuali People Management for the Enterprise (KPME) is an open-source, comprehensive HR/Payroll System built by higher education for higher education. Composed of both stand-alone and integrated modules, KPME includes Payroll, Time and Attendance, Leave Management, HR Core Transactions, Benefits Administration and Position Management.
KPME is being developed in modules with Time and Attendance and Leave Management being developed first. Time and Attendance will be released in Fall 2011. It is built on Rice 1.0.3 and is integrated with other Kuali Systems. Detailed business requirements for Leave Management are currently under development. After completing the Time and Attendance and Leave Management modules, the focus will turn to electronic core HR transactions. This approach will enable schools to implement the Time and Attendance or Leave Management modules prior to the completion of the project.
The City of Bloomington in Bloomington, Indiana is in the process of implementing the KPME Time and Attendance module. City of Bloomington staff have assisted the KPME team with testing of the application and are now in the process of their implementation. Currently Time and Attendance is in production for IT Department staff. In the coming months, it will be rolled out to as many as 1100 city employees. This will mark the first production use of KPME by a municipal organization demonstrating the potential benefits of KPME software beyond higher education.
