UBC has embarked on an Integrated Renewal Program (IRP) to transform our HR, Finance and Student systems and processes.

Earlier this year we asked you to share your thoughts on the program and UBC’s readiness for this change. Thank you to all those who took the time to share their comments. You can read the summary results from the first survey here and learn what actions have been taken.

As we get closer to implementing the new HR and Finance systems in April 2020, we are again seeking your feedback through a second readiness survey. For those who completed the first survey, you may recognize the questions. Although you may have shared feedback earlier this year, we are asking you to once again share your thoughts and help us measure progress since the first survey.

For those who did not complete the first survey, we hope you will provide feedback on this important program. Your responses are critical in improving how UBC manages this change, at both a departmental and organizational level.

Click here to access the survey. The deadline for responses is Friday, October 18, 2019.

The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and all responses will be anonymized.

On behalf of the program sponsors, we are committed to listening to your input. We will also run further surveys prior to April so we can continue to make adjustments as needed to support a successful implementation.

If you would like to know more about the IRP please visit the website.

If you have any questions about the program, or this survey, please email

Thank you for your support in helping UBC prepare for this transformational change.
