Human Capital Management Enterprise System (HCMES)

This project to implement an integrated HR and payroll management system began in January 2016. This HR/payroll system will not only provide comprehensive information on the entire public sector but will also enable the more efficient execution of regular transactional HR functions as well as facilitate more strategic activities.

The system will provide for the following functions:

  • Human Resources  Management
  • Payroll Management
  • Organisational Charts
  • Recruitment and Selection
  • Competency Management
  • Performance Management
  • Training Management

The project is being implemented in phases. Phase One will see 14 ministries, departments and agencies brought onto the system. These are: Office of the Services Commissions; eGov Jamaica; National Water Commission; Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency; Accountant General's Department; National Housing Trust; Jamaica Customs Agency; Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation; Aeronautical Telecommunications Ltd; Tax Administration Jamaica; HEART Trust/NTA; Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries; Ministry of Finance and the Public Service; and the Jamaica Constabulary Force.  These MDAs have been chosen based on a number of factors and it is anticipated that at the end of implementation in these MDAs, a solid template would have been developed to roll out the HCMES seamlessly across the rest of the public sector.
