Payroll systems

There are a range of Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) used across the public sector. Some of these include CHRIS 21, Empower and Valeo.

Shared Services SA provides system support for CHRIS.

Within the HRMS kiosk, some employees can apply for certain types of leave, view leave history and balances, view pay history details and update their personal details including bank account details.

Each agency may have different systems and procedures in place with varying levels of functionality. A link to access your specific HRMS is likely to be available via your intranet. Contact your agency HR team to find out more.

Temporary, labour hire and contractor employees will have other arrangements in place.

For more information:

  • View the HRMS documents library (statenet access required) for HRMS user forms, CHRIS manuals, how to videos and HRMS procedures. This includes more complex information for HR administrators of CHRIS.
  • Contact HRMS Systems Support.
