The University is required to provide staffing information to HESA on an annual basis.
Each year, HESA provides requirements for the current submission. This usually involves some modifications to the existing process. For the 2012/13 submission, the HESA requirements call for an unusually high number of changes. These are expected to involve changes to:
- the HR core system and the HR extracts to HR HESA and PPIPMI
- the HR HESA application, tables and universes, and the submission of data files to HESA
- the eRecruitment application, tables and universe, and the eRecruitment extract to HR
- the HR PPIPMI tables and universe
- the Finance Cost Centre extract
In addition, three of the new HESA fields must be sourced from PURE. It is understood that these will be provided by GaSP via a csv download file. This file will then be loaded into the HR HESA tables.
To undertake all development changes required to meet the requirement changes specified by HESA.
Please see HESA requirements.

The HR HESA system is used internally by the staff of the HR Systems Team. It is not therefore affected by Data Protection, Freedom of Information, or other legislative restrictions.
It is, however, a legislative requirement that the HR HESA return is submitted within HESA deadlines. The delivery of the project is therefore critical to the University.
