This chapter intends to reveal the benefit of predated notifications of personal actions for HR-planning and discusses the interrelated demands on ERP-systems. If e-government is implemented, one has to think of rearranging the government’s HR-structure in order to adapt to the new circumstances, too. This means to take advantage of modern HR-methodology in order to become more efficient in HR-administration. One possible way in improving human resource management (HRM) is using predated notifications of personal actions for HR-planning. Human resource planning (HR-planning) is a component of strategic enterprise planning. It is fully integrated into the enterprise-wide planning process, because HR-planning is not only determined by other planning areas, but it also determines them vice versa. So the more precisely and comprehensively HR-planning is done, the more accurate derived key figures, which are used in other planning areas, can be. Governments usually deal with a huge amount of personnel, so HR is one of the main tasks in administration. Predated notifications of personal actions usually are known in present, but will be started in the future. In contrast to planning a personnel action the predated one will take place with the highest possible probability. An example for making the difference more clear may be an employee’s retirement. It does not stringently depend on the employee’s age, but rather on the person’s individual decision to retire. As a general rule, an employee’s intention to retire is already known about half a year before it takes place. If this information is used in the planning process, the company will have enough time to estimate the loss of knowledge or the cost-savings that will be caused by the employee’s withdrawal. In huge companies, HRM typically is supported by ERP-systems. The functionality offered by the software depends on the company’s needs and may range from a simple keeping of personnel data to a complex module called human capital management, which is used for payroll accounting, talent management, employee self services, and many more. If the decision-making body considers the company’s personnel as business critical, a lot of employee-related data is collected and analyzed, ranging from master data to planning key figures. This chapter will emphasize the importance of efficient HR-planning for governments in order to improve their business processes. It can be seen as one of the goals of e-government. It will be pointed out how HR-planning can be improved by using predated notifications of personal actions, so that HR-divisions in governments can use advanced HRplanning right on from the beginning when preparing themselves for e-government.
