Bulletin No. 322


Subject Schedule for Agency Payroll Submission and Availability of Reports and Files
Purpose To provide agencies with schedule for payroll submission and the availability of dates for payroll reports and files.
Effective Date Fiscal Year 2002 - 2003
Deadlines For agencies paid on a lag basis, the submission deadline is generally the last day of the payroll period (Wednesday). For agencies paid on a current basis, the submission deadline is generally the last day (Wednesday) of the previous payroll period.

Due to holidays and special processing, earlier submission deadlines are necessary to ensure that paychecks are issued timely. To assist agencies in identifying the earlier deadlines, the dates have been bolded on the schedule.

NOTE: Dates stated may be subject to change due to unanticipated payroll processing requirements.

Time Entry Transactions
On-line Time Entry earnings may be entered only during the time frames listed on the schedule. Agencies submitting Miscellaneous Payment Files may enter corrections for rejected file transactions on the workday following the availability of the Reveal Report, NPAY502 Rejected Time Entry Transactions.

Miscellaneous File Transactions and Data Capture Files
Inbound Files must be submitted by the established deadlines to ensure timely processing. If an agency anticipates a delay or has technical issues that prevent an agency from meeting the established deadline, the agency representative must contact the Payroll Systems Reporting Team at (518) 402-4168 or (518) 473-7426 to report the problem.

Attached is the Schedule for Agency Payroll Submission and Report and File Availability.

Agency Procedure:
Entering Transactions After the Deadline
After the agency deadline, the agency must not enter any data into the Position Data panel, Job Data panel, Additional Pay panel, Hire panel, Rehire panel, or Concurrent Hire panel, until the 2ND Friday after the agency deadline, unless the effective date of the action(s) is within, or subsequent to, the following pay period.

Example: The deadline for entering transactions for Administration payroll period 5 lag/6 current is close of business (6:00 p.m.) on Wednesday June 5, 2002. After this date, the agency may not enter an action into the above panels, unless the effective date of the action(s) is within, or subsequent to, payroll period 6 lag/7current. The agency may commence entering actions that have an effective date in, or prior to, payroll period 5 lag/6 current on Friday, June 14, 2002.

Requesting "Additional" Transactions
OSC recognizes that occasionally there may be an extraordinary circumstance that prevents an agency from meeting the established deadline.

If after the submission deadline, an agency determines that there is an urgent transaction that was not entered, the agency may request that OSC accept an "additional" transaction by contacting their payroll auditor or, if the additional action requires salary determination, Carol Trombley in the Salary Determination Unit.

Exception: The following agencies must contact the auditor for a salary related additional transaction.
