Agency Actions:
Discretionary Processing

For employees with a Pay Basis code of ANN, CYP or CYF, the agency must submit a Job Action Request effective July 1, 2000 with the Action of Pay Rate Change and the Reason code SIC (SAL INCR).

Because employees with pay basis codes ANN, CYP or CYF received a 3% Salary increase on July 6, 2000, agencies must submit a transaction in the Job Action Request panel with the Action of Pay Rate Change and the Reason code CSL (COR SAL) to update the July 6, 2000 row by the July 1, 2000 discretionary amount.

For employees with the pay basis code 21P, agencies must submit a Job Action Request effective August 17, 2000, with the Action of Pay Rate Change and the Reason code SIC (SAL INCR).

For employees with the pay basis code CAL, agencies must submit a Job Action Request effective September 1, 2000, with the Action of Pay Rate Change and the Reason code SIC (SAL INCR).

All subsequent rows on the Job Data panel must be updated by submitting a Job Action Request with the action of Pay Rate Change and the Reason code CSL (COR SAL).

Subsequent rows should only be increased by the amount of the actual discretionary amount as shown on the approved rosters. Do not apply the 3% salary increase to any discretionary amount when updating rows.

Questions Questions concerning these increases should be directed to SUNY System Administration.
