UBC’s strategic plan, Shaping UBC’s Next Century, sets out UBC’s vision, purpose, values and goals, as well as the themes and core areas that shape UBC’s strategies for the years ahead. One core area includes a systems renewal which the Integrated Renewal Program (IRP) will deliver.

The Integrated Renewal Program (IRP) is a business process transformation and UBC has selected Workday as the core enterprise system to replace UBC’s Student Information System (SIS), Human Resource Management System (HRMS), and Financial Management System (FMS).



Through the IRP, the way we support learning and research, and how we work at UBC will be transformed, creating a cohesive, integrated, and enriched experience for students, staff, and faculty.

Anticipated Benefits

Workday is an industry-leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud-based platform that provides users with a 21st century experience that continually evolves. It consistently passes rigorous third-party compliance audits of security, confidentiality, availability, and privacy controls with 99.9% uptime in the past two years. Workday offers flexibility to configure its product to accommodate UBC’s preferred business processes.

The IRP will:

  1. Support an engaged, collaborative, and exceptional learning, research, and working environment for students, staff, and faculty.
  2. Enable a cohesive alignment of practices and processes.
  3. Create a simple, intuitive, consistent user experience where we interact with confidence and ease.
  4. Ensure reliable, integrated, and accessible institutional data that enables people to make informed, strategic decisions.
  5. Position UBC and its people to embrace opportunities and adapt to future needs and requirements.
  6. Provide robust, secure, sustainable solutions that are fiscally responsible.
