The purpose of this study was to identify the level of readiness of using the Human Resource Management Information System or HRMIS among the staff of the Terengganu State Education Department (JPNT) based on the UTAUT Model. The respondents of this study involved 97 staff members and non-teachers representing the entire TSED staff. Descriptive statistics analysis using Smart PLS Version 2.0 was used to analyze the relationships between constructs. The researcher's proposed model contributes 45% of the variance to Behavioral Intention

The findings show that only Social Influence has a significant positive relationship with Behavioral Intention. Researchers feel the urge and encouragement from the management of the Departments and Sectors play an essential role in ensuring that all TSED citizens use the HRMIS module in their service-related matters. The results of this study can also serve as a guide to the central agencies, the Ministry of Education Malaysia and the Department for developing more effective policies and actions regarding the use of the HRMIS system. The scope of the study should be extended to the school level as HRMIS is also used by the school and the District Education Office to obtain more complete and accurate results.
