What is NewPay?
In support of the Sharing Quality Services Cross Agency Priority Goal under the President’s Management Agenda, the General Services Administration launched the NewPay initiative to modernize federal payroll services. NewPay will harmonize agency legacy systems into a modern, commercial, standards compliant Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to ensure consistency in payroll outcomes across the federal environment.
NewPay has the potential of improving services while reducing costs in the long-term for the American people. This is consistent with GSA’s goals of improving performance and saving taxpayer money through shared services.
When complete NewPay will provide integrated Payroll and Work Schedule and Leave Management on a modern, standards based, secure commercial solution maintained by the vendors. Specifically, NewPay will provide:
- Continuous Innovation and Integration with Software-as-a-Service -- Price based on consumption and builds on economies of scale by pulling negotiating power of multiple agencies. Software updates will be included in the subscription price and will enable the Federal Government to capitalize on technology advancements.
