going live1
Going Live
  • Met weekly and scheduled open labs
    • Allowed employees to come and have a space to lock records and work together
    • Payroll was available to answer questions and trouble shoot
    • Re-run PEPFLAC as necessary on individual level
  • Timeline
    • Once current payroll finished, Payroll immediately runs PEPFLAC for the next pay period
    • Division offices have about 10 working days to review and lock records
going live2
Going Live
  • Customizations and Modifications
    • Run PEPFLAC bi-weekly bringing in any new records where the course started during the specific payroll dates
    • Two specific jobs payroll runs before PEPFLAC
      • Assigns position number
      • Assigns the next suffix number
    • A job that changes the default Reg Pay to our specific earn code
      • Spring faculty pay
    • Ability on SSB to change the workload
      • Can be done on SIAASGN, but SSB was more efficient for our process
    • Modified download data to include additional information for auditing purposes
    • A job that downloads data for our board packets that include: name, ID, rate, start and end date of class
  • Always evolving process
    • Establish user groups
  • Comments
    • Use comments in SSB – follow trail
  • Contact payroll to re-run PEPFLAC for specific individuals during a pay period if there have been changes
    • Don’t want to unlock all the other records
  • Decided not to do compensation and acknowledgement
    • Changes are being made up until the payroll starting
    • Know our faculty and the consensus was that faculty would not be reviewing them
our unique challenges
Our Unique Challenges
  • How we use position and suffix numbers
    • Running out of suffix numbers
  • Once recorded is extracted and applied changes are processed manually via a spreadsheet
  • Is work to set up and determine processes, but more efficient and accurate
  • Better service to our employees – view their payment history
    • Faculty are able to see what they are being paid for – inquiries regarding payments have decreased
  • Division offices have a better picture of assignments coming out of their area and others if the instructor is teaching across divisions
