  • New York University Payroll Assessment Final Report July 2009
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 1 Table of Contents • Executive Summary • Project Objectives and Approach • Findings • Opportunities • Options Analysis and Recommendations • Recommended Projects and Implementation Roadmap • Appendix
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 2 Executive Summary • Findings – Current annual payroll operating cost of $4.7 million offers significant opportunity for improvement – Time & Labor process is completely manual – HR/Payroll system is 30 years old and presents considerable risk of failure • Recommendations – Continue to run payroll as an insourced function – Implement a Time & Labor solution – Transition payroll into a true Service Center model and optimize payroll operations – Reengineer key aspects of HR transaction processing to improve speed and efficiency of transactions which affect payroll • Financial impact – Reduce steady state run cost by $2.1 million, a 45% reduction – Payback: 2.3 years with an NPV of $18 million
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 3 Executive Summary The to-be Payroll environment at NYU will have the following characteristics: – Run cost reduced by approximately 50% – Automation of all payroll-related processes – Elimination of the risk associated with an obsolete HR/Payroll system – Payroll department optimized for maximum efficiency – Payroll operating in a Service Center model – Simplified payroll processing calendar with fewer pay cycles – University-wide shift in behavior and mindset: • More operational discipline and more timely processing • Fewer exceptions • Elimination of check distribution and reduction in check cashing services • A self service model for data entry and issue resolution; examples: – Self service for employee personal data entry (e.g. time entry, address change) – Self service Employee Portal for procedure and policy information – 800 number for employee inquiries
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 4 Project Objectives and Scope • The objectives of the payroll assessment were to: – Investigate opportunities for improving accuracy, efficiency, and effectiveness across NYU’s US Payroll process • Assess both short-term and long-term payroll considerations • Benchmark payroll operational metrics and compare to leading practices with specific focus on operational efficiency, cost-to-serve, field/input compliance, and payroll work/activity distribution – Analyze payroll service delivery alternatives (in-source/outsource) and supporting technology – Define a high-level roadmap and go-forward recommendation – Develop a financial analysis of options including one-time and ongoing costs aligned with the proposed roadmap and recommendation • The assessment focused on NYU’s US payroll operation including Time & Labor (T&L) as a key input/component to payroll processing; the scope of the assessment also included: – Payroll transaction and exception processing – Supporting payroll related technology – Payroll processing procedures & documentation – Overall payroll process compliance (payroll operations and input dependencies) – Processing of HR transactions which affect payroll Note: see Appendix for more details on Project Approach
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 5 Data Gathering for the Project Data gathering consisted of two activities: – Building a fact base of current state data: operating costs, third party services and costs, transaction types and volumes, service delivery structure, pay processing calendars, technology applications, etc. – Conducting a total of 18 interviews, involving 48 NYU personnel, to understand the roles, procedures, issues, opportunities, and challenges with the current payroll process • Schools/Units – Time data collection, review, and submission; HR transaction preparation and entry • Central Areas – Time data entry and payroll processing; Academic Appointments; HR, Benefits, and IT Support Note: see Appendix for the detailed inventory of interviews/interviewees
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 6 Themes/Findings from the Interviews • Time & Labor processing is almost 100% manual • Onboarding and other upstream HR activities cause delays in the entry of HR transactions, which then create late payroll transactions • There is a lot of complexity inherent in a new hire transaction which often results in delays and late processing • There are an unusually high number of reviews and approvals in the end-to-end process • There is no standardization of Time and HR processes/roles within the Schools/Units • A majority of the complexity and issues within the Schools/Units is with the cost accounting associated with Pay and HR transactions, not the payroll transaction per se • End users want better access to information – about employee data and about payroll- related processes and procedures • There is no standard tracking mechanism for Sick/Vacation time (some schools use shadow systems, others do it manually); this information is very frequently not accurate • While overall customer service from the central Payroll department is viewed favorably, there is considerable reliance on individual contacts/relationships to resolve issues – there is no “service center” model for customer service • There are fundamental limitations with the Integral system, and fundamental risk of failure with the Integral Payroll module • Current check distribution procedures are cumbersome and costly
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 7 Not replacing the Integral Payroll system carries substantial business risk The university’s HR and Payroll system is called Integral. This system has the following characteristics: • Was originally developed in the 1970’s • Runs on a mainframe computer, which is expensive and nearing obsolescence • Integral is obsolete software with many structural limitations; very difficult to modify and maintain – For example: No effective dating, limit of 7 jobs per employee • Only a handful of organizations are still running Integral • Number of IT professionals with Integral expertise is small, and getting smaller  There is substantial business risk associated with continuing to run the 30 year old Integral Payroll system – Payroll failure – with no real contingency plan – Inability to implement regulatory changes – Dependence on two specific NYU support individuals, both of whom are nearing retirement – Dependence on a relatively small third party support firm, JAT ($6 million annual sales, <100 employees)  Business requirements that will require significant additional effort and cost in the absence of a PeopleSoft implementation: – Support for Abu Dhabi and any other global sites – Position Management – HR/Payroll historical data conversion in the Data Warehouse – Additional PASS/HRIS enhancements

  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 10 Cost of Payroll Operations Significantly higher cost… NYU Payroll operations cost approximately five and a half times the average payroll operations as measured by cost per check and cost per employee served. Over 50% of cost is driven by the manual Time and Attendance system External Benchmark: American Payroll Association Payroll Cost per Payee $304.04 $72.93 NYU Average External Benchmark Payroll Cost per Payment $15.20 $3.44 NYU Average External Benchmark Current Current
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 11 Efficiency of Payroll Operations Significantly lower efficiency… The average Payroll operation services approximately three and a half times more employees per Payroll FTE than NYU. Almost 50% of the NYU payroll labor in this equation is dedicated to supporting the manual Time and Attendance process * Payments Processed metric is skewed by the fact that a large portion of NYUs population is paid monthly. If this population were paid semi-monthly, the NYU average would be about 7,700 per FTE (about 1/3 as efficient as benchmark) * External Benchmark: American Payroll Association Payees processed per Payroll FTE 293 984 NYU Average External Benchmark Payments processed per Payroll FTE 5,849 26,144 NYU Average External Benchmark
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 12 Payroll Quality Metrics  Lowest % of late HR transactions: Courant, VP Public Affairs, Silver, General Counsel, FAS, School of Law, Tisch, Stern  Highest % of late HR transactions: Gallatin, ISAW, Vice Provost Academic Affairs, Vice Provost Faculty Affairs Late HR Input negatively impacts Payroll: NYU issues over 11,000 off-cycle payments annually (Manual and off-cycle). Off-cycle payments and retroactive adjustments cause rework for both the Payroll department and the Payroll support personnel in the schools/units. What schools are the “best” and “worst” performers? Off-Cycle Checks Late HR 28% Check 22%Payroll Error 17% Other 13% Bonus 7% Late Time 6% Time Error 5% Direct Deposit 2% Late HR Transactions by School/Unit 68.4% 73.8% 87.8% Top Quartile Average Bottom Quartile Retroactive Pay Adjustment Rate 6.3% 1.2% NYU Average External Benchmark

Manual processes cause NYU Payroll personnel to spend more time than average managing key processes than average. NYU NYU NYU NYU Benchmark Benchmark Benchmark Benchmark
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 14 Opportunities – Time & Labor Description: Implement an automated Time & Labor solution • Web-based software which automates time entry and approvals, facilitates time entry through multiple channels (e.g. clocks, online, etc.), entry and tracking of sick/vacation time, and entry of labor/cost accounting information • Implementation of updated roles, processes, and procedures for end to end Time & Labor activity • Managed introduction of the new technology and processes across the university Supporting Data • Approximately 50% of Payroll labor and cost is dedicated to time & attendance management. External benchmark average is 10% • Manual time capture is an error-prone process. Each timesheet is manually keyed in at least 3 separate times (sometimes more depending on the school process). Even at a 99% error-free rate, there would still be 30 keying errors for every 1,000 timesheets • NYU Payroll is significantly lagging the benchmark in terms of cost and efficiency – in large part driven by exorbitant time and attendance costs Impact • Up to 50% reduction in Payroll T&A personnel (3.5 of 5.5 FTE) - $200K Annual Savings • Up to 75% reduction in School/Unit Payroll support personnel (26 of 35 FTE) - $1-2M Annual Savings • APA estimates indicate that an electronic T&A system will produce 1-3% reduction in total hourly payroll by reducing overpayment errors and over reporting of sick/vacation time - $1.5-3M Annual savings
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 15 Opportunities – Payroll Service Center and Payroll Optimization Description: Redesign the work within the central Payroll operation • Move Payroll towards a true Service Center model with a call center capability, automated tracking of calls and cases, and better integration with related Benefits and HR activities • Redesign the Payroll Calendar with the objective of reducing the number of different pay frequencies and reducing the total number of pay runs within a month • Move to eliminate the current process of hand delivery of checks • Implement a payment/chargeback mechanism for exception processing such as off cycle checks and garnishments • Implement operational metrics reporting to improve operational efficiency Supporting Data • A significant portion of the school’s Payroll/T&A FTE is spent on customer service tasks such as fielding questions on leave balances, payroll deductions and missing time • Payroll support personnel at the school level do not have direct access to the systems of record and often cannot answer questions. These questions must be escalated to Payroll resulting in duplicate effort • The current informal system of raising issues has no tracking or reporting system and, according to our interviews, issues are often lost and must be raised multiple times Impact • Relieving HR/Payroll/T&A personnel at the school level from Payroll customer service responsibilities is essential for realizing the $1.2M Annual savings from field support FTE noted previously • Employee satisfaction will increase when they are able to quickly and easily find answers to their questions. The first person they speak to (Payroll Service Center representative) will have the knowledge and systems access to address their questions • Shift customer service inquiries to capable, but newer Payroll employees. Current, informal system places the heaviest burden for customer service on the most experienced (and most expensive) caseworkers in Payroll who are the known contacts in the field.

  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 17 Opportunities – HR Reengineering Description: Reengineer HR transaction processes with the Schools and Units • Improve end user access to information – both employee data and process/procedure documentation • Look to more broadly distribute PASS within the Schools, down to the department level • Look to reduce the number of approvals on a transaction • Implement better controls/audits on Academic and Student onboarding, to reduce missed payrolls Supporting Data • Average percentage of late HR actions (PASS) is 74% • Currently, only one of the schools interviewed has PASS distributed down to the department level, but they are in the top quartile (internal benchmark) of timely PASS submissions and they perform their duties with less personnel than average (1:134 ratio vs 1:88) Impact • Reduce percentage of late HR actions from 74% to 25% • Reduce off-cycle paychecks by approximately 50-70% for an estimated annual savings of $100-200K • Reduce Payroll FTE by 1 for an estimated annual savings of $50K
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 18 Opportunities – Payroll Outsourcing Description: Outsource the data processing components of payroll to a third party • Shift responsibility for the data processing of some, or all, of the following components to a third party processor: – Gross to Net payroll calculation – Garnishment processing – Off cycle check processing – Check printing and distribution – Tax reporting and processing and W2 processing • The two different service models for Payroll Outsourcing are outlined on the next page Supporting Data: • Outsourcing of payroll – in the “data processing model” (see next page) would result in an 18% reduction in the annual run cost • Outsourcing of payroll – in the “managed service model” (see next page) would result in a 16% increase in the annual run cost – given the significantly higher third party service cost associated with the “managed service model” Impact • Reduction of the quantity of exceptions, as envisioned in the to-be environment, would be essential in managing the ongoing run cost of payroll outsourcing • Portions of Employee Benefits are outsourced to Towers Perrin – requiring some coordination of data flows and other aspects of service
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 19 Payroll Outsourcing – Service Options There are two basic service models for Payroll Outsourcing Payroll Data Processing (modeled in Options 3,4 – see following pages) • Outsourcer takes responsibility for the data processing associated with payroll, such as Gross to Net, Garnishments, Check printing and distribution, and Tax reporting and processing • Client retains the responsibility for employee service, transmission of data to the outsourcer, error resolution, overall financial management and control, payroll accounting, etc. • Market price of this service typically ranges from $50-80 per employee per year • This is a well established and proven service model; historically more popular with smaller organizations, although a growing number of large organizations are opting for this service • Market leaders are ADP and Ceridian Payroll Managed Service (modeled in Option 5 – see following pages) • Outsourcer takes responsibility all aspects of payroll operation, including employee service; this model is more of a true Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) model; it is frequently marketed as an integrated Payroll/HR/Benefits BPO model • Client only retains responsibility for Vendor Management • Market price of this service typically ranges from $150-200 per employee per year • This is a relatively new service offering without a strong track record of service • Market leaders are ADP and Ceridian
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 20 Options Overview Option 1 – Maintain insourced payroll, automate and reengineer key processes • Time & Labor solution (presumably Workforce) • Payroll "Service Center" and Operations Optimization • HR Reengineering Option 2 – Outsource payroll (data processing model), automate T&L, reengineer key processes • Time & Labor solution (presumably Workforce) • Payroll "Service Center" and Operations Optimization • HR Reengineering • Payroll Outsourcing of GTN, Tax, W2, Garnishments Option 3 – Outsource payroll and T&L (data processing model), reengineer key processes • Time & Labor Outsourcing • Payroll "Service Center" and Operations Optimization • HR Reengineering • Payroll Outsourcing of GTN, Tax, W2, Garnishments Option 4 – Outsource payroll and T&L (managed service model), reengineer key processes • Payroll Outsourcing with full “Managed Service” model; includes Time & Labor capability • HR Reengineering
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 21 Financial Analysis of Options Option 1 is recommended - This option offers the lowest steady state run cost, and the best overall financials and rate of return Note: see Appendix for detailed financial models of all 4 options NOTE: the Payroll Assessment team has validated the Time & Labor implementation estimate with the NYU PMO team
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 22 Comparison of Annual Run Cost Estimates Option 1 delivers the highest annual cost reduction – with the optimal combination of labor, third party, and other costs
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 23 Key Metrics – Before and After Metric APA Benchmark NYU Today NYU After Cost per check $3.44 $15.20 $8.95 Cost per employee $72.93 $304.04 $179.06 Employees per Payroll FTE 1000 293 775 Checks per Payroll FTE 26,144 5849 15500 % of Payroll time spent on time entry 6% 31% 7% % Off Cycle Checks 1.2% 3.4% TBD NOTE: given the inherent complexities in some aspects of Higher Education Payroll, NYU should not expect to get to the level of the APA Benchmarks, which includes all companies across all industry segments
  • Copyright © 2009 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 24 Guiding Principles for Implementation Roadmap and Projects • The goal of the Implementation Roadmap is to strike the proper balance among multiple factors: – Funding and ROI – Resource availability – Pace of change – Timing of benefits realization – Fit with annual University calendar – Fit with other large University initiatives • Each of the projects has been envisioned, with a high level estimate of effort and duration, with a holistic view of the end-to-end process – considering business process, roles, change management, etc. in addition to software installation • Projects have been estimated using three resource types: – NYU User: functional expert in payroll and payroll-related processes – NYU IT: technical expert in payroll-related systems – Contractor: external expert in software, relevant processes, and large scale project/program management
