The Statewide Personnel System(SPS) marks a new direction for how the State will manage its human resources data in the future. All SPS applications are hosted in “the cloud”, which offers many advantages including reduced hardware and software costs, robust security, and shorter application update timeframes. Cloud based applications open up new ways for state agencies to manage time and attendance, training, and state job applications from anywhere and at any time. 


​​​​SPS Benefits:

​If you participate in the State’s Employee Benefits Program, you can view your 2019 benefit elections and your dependent information in the system.

If you have a qualifying Life Event and want to make a change to your 2019 benefit elections, you will log in to the SPS and initiate the change.

The first step to log into SPS will be getting your new ID number as your User Name, this number is called your W# or SPS Employee ID.  Active employees can go to the POSC to find instructions to locate your W#, initial password instructions for your account and how to change your password after your login. 
The Benefits Help Center has the basic navigation course and guide, and quick reference guides on how to view your benefits information and how to initiate a Life Event change to your benefits.  Please contact your Agency Benefits Coordinator (ABC) or review the Benefits FAQs for benefits related questions.
