Time Reporting System (TRS) Support & Training

The Time Reporting System (TRS) is the primary timekeeping system for UC Irvine employees.

Functional administration of TRS is provided by the TRS Support Desk in the Central Payroll Office, a division of the Accounting and Fiscal Services department; Technical administration of TRS is provided by the Human Resources IT (HR IT) Team in the Office of Information Technology.

While the primary focus of the TRS Support Desk is troubleshooting TRS functional system issues and escalating unresolved incidents to the HR IT Team as needed, the TRS Support Desk is also responsible for creating, updating, and/or delivering TRS-related instructional materials and administering TRS DTA access.
