  1. Flexgen Payroll – TCRS/Concord Project Local Government Corporation 2014 Resource

  2. Introduction – What is Concord? • Concord is a Tennessee Department of Treasury project to replace the many outdated legacy computer systems that are currently used to administer the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS). •We will discuss the new TCRS/Concord fields within the Flexgen Payroll program and what they represent.  We will also cover some common errors in TCRS/Concord reporting and how to reconcile them.

  8. The amount of TCRS Service Credit is dependent upon the Contract Months 12 Month Contract = 1.000 11 Month Contract = 1.090 10 Month Contract = 1.200 09 Month Contract = 1.330

(Required for educational employees only) Scheduled Hours Per Day: The hours an employee is expected to work on a daily basis. Required for hourly employees Position Status and Hire Date - Required for TCRS reporting. The employee’s position status (full-time, part-time, seasonal, etc)

  11. Don’t confuse the status codes! The traditional Position Status code used for past 30 years 01 = Full-Time The new Concord Position Status code 00 = Regular Full Time

  12. Pay Times: The number of times an employee will be paid in a calendar year Payment Method: Identifies the Member’s Rate of Pay as Hourly, Salary, or Daily

  13. Employee Status: If Employee Status is Terminated then an Employment End Date and Terminated Reason are required Employment End Date: Date member terminated employment or changed contribution group or status. Required for all Employee Status other than Active or Inactive Terminated Reason: Required if Employee Status is Terminated

  14. Rehire Date: If Employee Status is 0006 Change In Contribution Group or 0009 Change In Position Status then Employment End Date and Rehire Date are required

  15. Don’t confuse the reason codes! Terminated Reason codes - user defined (customized) codes are allowed Concord Employment End Reason Customized codes are not allowed 03 = Termination

  16. Don’t confuse the status and reason codes! Employee Status – customized codes are no longer allowed 07 = Retirement Employment End Reason - customized codes are not allowed 01 = Retirement

  39. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 3 Department Report Add-On Maintenance employee

  40. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 3 Department Report Pay Types BON = Bonus CL = Career Ladder SSB = Summer School Bonus

  41. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 3 Department Report Multiple Records An asterisk indicates there are multiple pay types for the employee

  43. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 4 Service Credit Scroll Service Credit: Reported in increments of 1/8 of a month based on the time a member worked in the month. Round up to the next nearest 1/8 of a month

  44. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 4 Service Credit Scroll Old way enter a percentage New way enter the amount to report rounded to next 1/8 month

  45. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 4 Service Credit Scroll Using the calculation provided by TCRS: Employee was paid $3975.27. The expected pay per pay period is $4184.50 per month over a 10-month contract. When we divide the actual pay of $3975.27 by the total expected pay of $4184.50, the service credit totals 0.9499 Multiply 0.9499 times 1.20 service credit = 1.1398 Using TCRS table for 10 month contract we would round up 1.1398 to 1.200

  46. TCRS Concord Project Reporting Process – Step 4 Service Credit Scroll Percentage Method: 10 month contract employee normal working days is 20 Employee misses one day making 19 days worked 19/20=.95 percent worked 1.2 x .95=1.14 service credit Using TCRS table for 10 month contract we would round up 1.14 to 1.20
