In January 2012, the SBCCD Board of Trustees adopted a Sustainability Plan crafted by our district-wide work group.
The SBCCD has taken a very businesslike approach to cutting costs through energy savings--but not at the expense of our students or employees.
SBCCD measures electricity, water, sewer and gas usage and Cenergistic continues to identify energy conservation opportunities throughout our facilities.
SBCCD has also leveraged the funding from our Measure M bond passed in 2008 for capital improvements to further support the implementation of our Sustainability Plan.
The sun shines almost every day in San Bernardino County and the SBCCD leadership also capitalized on that environmental advantage.
"Our current system is not as efficient as we would like and doesn't have the capabilities we need," said Bruce Baron, SBCCD chancellor.
"We want an integrated solution where all our data is in one place; a solution that is efficient and easy for employees to use, and that helps enable their use of mobile technology," said Jose Torres, vice chancellor of Business and Fiscal Services for the SBCCD. "I wanted us to envision where our district could be if our human capital management solutions made use of the latest technology and expertise.
"SBCCD is at the forefront of technical and cultural innovation, and ADP is delighted to be an intrinsic part of that," said Dave Imbrogno, president of HR, Payroll and Talent Solutions at ADP.
As the SBCCD team embarks on this new model, they're looking forward to certain capabilities that the new ADP Vantage HCM solution will offer employees -- capabilities such as being site-compatible with tablets and smartphones to complete time cards, request time off, check employee vacation balances and sick time, and complete work reports.
