Cardinal goes live on Monday

As previously announced, Cardinal Human Capital Management (Cardinal HCM) is the Commonwealth’s new system for human resources, health benefits, and payroll processing. Cardinal HCM’s Employee Self Service (ESS) replaces Payline and Employee Direct. The new system goes live Monday, April 4.

ESS can be used to access your pay stubs, your W2, direct deposit information and to enroll in benefits. In order to access ESS, you must register and activate your account and establish multi-factor authentication. Instructions can be found on the Payroll website. From that page, click on the Cardinal System Access Guide.

You’ll need your 11-digit employee ID when you register. The employee ID number was provided to you in an email earlier today from The Cardinal Project (cardinal-comms@public.govdelivery.com). Be sure to check your Junk, Spam and Other folders for the email.

You will receive another email from The Cardinal Project team on Monday when the system is ready for you to use. Until you receive that email, you will not be able to register.

Please be aware that UMW will continue using MyTime to record hours worked and leave taken. UMW employees will not enter timecard data into Cardinal HCM.

Feel free to email CardinalHCM@umw.edu if you have any questions.
