PAYROLL SYSTEM 1. Background of the Problem/Opportunity 2. Project Scope and Constraint The scope of the project covers the upgrade of the existing payroll system of the Catanduanes State Colleges, from a computer-based system to a web-based system. The system shall maintain a database that will store and maintain the updated Payroll Data, Deductions and salary information and compute employees’ salaries. The new system, as a web-based system, will allow employees to access the system through the intranet using a web browser. This system will keep record of all payroll information and make all of this data available online through reports.
The application is to be developed in the so-called “WAMP” platform. The following are the constraints that could affect the project: •Viruses •Power Interruption 3. Project Benefit Once the project is implemented, it is expected that the following benefits shall be met: •Faster payroll service to employees •Higher employee morale 8.
