The iPeople system will be upgraded in Late April of 2015 in support of the LEAPForward initiative. During the upgrade, iPeople will be running in a limited access "Read-Only" mode. Dates of this "Read-Only" access are anticipated to be between April 23-30 with little overall impact to employees. If you have a need for a benefit change during this time, please contact our office directly at 309-438-8311 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. A campus notice will go out when the upgrade is complete. Software changes like these are large and complex, and we certainly do appreciate your patience during this period. Go Redbirds!
