We will provide the employer with a copy of the submitted JE and completed Request for Reimbursement of Wages.

2008 – 2009 Payroll Procedures Business Managers Please Note: • All FWS reimbursements will be posted to account #8010100 for ALL DEPARTMENTS. This means that account #8010100 will have a credit balance at the end of the year. This will represent all reimbursements that have been processed for FWS students and an overall credit to your department budget. • Account #601200 (All Students), the account that departments are using to pay the FWS student up front, will have a deficit at the end of the year. This will represent the FWS wages your department paid (prior to reimbursement). • The credit in Account # 8010100 will not necessarily = the deficit in Account # 601200 if the department pays other students who are NOT FWS students from Account # 601200. *************************************************************************************** NOTE!
