Agencies not converted to PaySR should continue to submit all current PR-75 and PR-76 forms as they do today.

Agencies should copy the attached Payroll Certification form as needed (Attachment A).

Bulletin 25, Attachment B

Certification Process

  1. Agencies enter information into NYSTEP and PaySR. NYSTEP sends a nightly file to PaySR which contains Certification transactions.
  2. This file is matched against the PaySR employee's job data.
  • If a match is found and all employee job data between NYSTEP and PaySR agree:
    • PaySR updates the certification status specified by NYSTEP.
  • If a match is found but there are discrepancies:
    • If the discrepancy is something that can be fixed without calling the agency (for example Perm to Temp), the employee's job data will be corrected to match the NYSTEP information.
    • If the discrepancy is something that OSC cannot resolve, the agency, NYSTEP and OSC must seek a resolution.


Bulletin 25, Attachment C

Title & Position Management


  1. Agencies enter data into NYSTEP for new positions and/or titles.

  2. Approved positions/titles are sent to PaySR.

  3. Positions and/or new Job Codes are available for agency use.
