Important Update on Compensation Planning Tool Project

For those who currently do compensation planning and budgeting at the University:

As you are likely aware, we have been working with Questica to develop a new cloud-based Compensation Planning Tool to better meet institutional and divisional needs.

To date, we have completed the requirements analysis, conducted validation, and configured most aspects of the system to meet U of T’s needs. During the configuration and development phase, the functionality and flexibility offered by Questica have met our expectations; however, when loading our large volume of complex data into the Compensation Planning Tool, we have recently experienced issues with adequate system performance and processing times.

We are currently working with the vendor on a plan to substantially improve performance in order to provide users with both accurate and timely budgeting information. However, this plan requires us to delay implementation of the new Compensation Planning Tool. As a result of this, and to ensure a smooth compensation planning process for the coming year, the B6 will continue to be used to plan compensation expenses for budget year 2020-2021 while we tune the Questica platform.

Thank you for your patience throughout this process and your input and participation to date. We look forward to providing you with updates as we work to optimize the system and provide a superior user experience for many years to come.
