3 Purpose Define Agency recovery deduction codes (Y & Z) Associate Agency deduction codes to employees Associate Agency deduction codes to vendors Review Vendor Setup Define the Employee Deduction Remittance Report Review Payroll Integration to Financials Coding for GIRO payments Coding a GIRO that should have been a Petty Cash Advance Recovery Identify the agencys new deduction codes, as required.
4 Agency Recoveries Agency recoveries from employees pay are for: Petty Cash Advances Recovery of State expenses Check / Advice Reversals Online checks Recoveries are coded as deductions from an employees pay
5 What are Y and Z Deductions? Deduction codes for agency recoveries are Yxxx or Zxxx, where xxx is the agency acronym. Y Deductions are Agency Recoveries. The dollars associated with the deductions ultimately end up in the Agencies AR Business Unit as a GIRO Payment from OSCIP. Z Deductions are Agency Recoveries of Petty Cash Advances. The dollars associated with these deductions ultimately end up in your Agencys Bank Account via ACH.
20 Employee Deduction Remittance Report What is the Employee Deduction Remittance Report? It is a hard copy report that is created and distributed to agencies on a bi-weekly basis (as employees are being enrolled in deductions) It captures each distinct vendor id, all of the deduction codes reporting to that vendor id, all of the employees who are enrolled in each deduction code (under the distinct vendor id), and the corresponding amount (for each deduction)
21 Employee Deduction Remittance Report Since agency recovery (Y deductions) and petty cash reimbursements (Z deductions) report to two distinct vendors (as you have seen with vendors 28 + 714) – each agency should be receiving their corresponding reports on a bi-weekly basis Payroll folks – please share this report with your financial offices! Who should I contact if I do not receive a report for a given cycle? Contact the Payroll Services Division (860) 702-3453 or (860) 702-3447 Please be prepared to provide your vendor id and the check date's needed
22 HRMS to Financials Integration - GL HRMS to GL – files are sent to the Financials GL module to record the States payroll. The system sends the following accounting entries: DR Payroll Expense DR Fringe Expense CR Payroll Liabilities CR Cash – Payroll Net Pay
23 HRMS to Financials Integration – GL These accounting entries are the Generated into Journals. The system process of Journal Generation automatically summarizes all entries by unique chartfield combination. The Journals are generated by BU. We setup the accounting entries table with the Agency acronym in the BU field so that each agency has a separate GL journal for each payroll.
24 HRMS to Financials Integration - AP HRMS to AP – files are sent to the Financials AP module to effect the payment of all deductions from an employees pay. The Vouchers are created in a separate BU - OSCIP. The vendors for this BU are in a separate Setid - OSCIP The vouchers are recorded as follows: DR Payroll Liability CR AP Liability
25 HRMS to Financials Integration - AP The Pay Cycle that produces the payments for these vouchers is also called OSCIP. The Pay Cycle produces payments in all formats: ACH - Tax & other Vendors setup to receive ACH CHECK – Vendor payments not by ACH Child Support – Sent to a third-party administrator GIRO – Internal payments Agency Recoveries Check/Advice Reversals Medical / Health deductions Savings Bond deductions The Pay Cycle combines payments within OSCIP by Vendor.
27 What if I made a mistake? If the payment should have gone to the Agencys Petty Cash account, the deposit should be directly journalled using the funds awaiting distribution coding. Fund = 34003 SID = 42350 Account = 20920 Enter all other required chartfields as normal including Program and Project. This allows the Deposit to be recorded and completed in the AR module.
28 What if I made a mistake? To actually fund the Petty Cash account, a voucher needs to be entered. Please refer to the Core-CT Financials Daily Mail dated 2/13/2004 that contains detail instructions - the following is an excerpt: 1.Process a non-PO voucher for Petty Cash Replenishment. 2. Select the Agency Vendor value for your agency for Petty Cash Replenishments. 3. Ensure that you enter Vendor Location - RPC on the Invoice Information Page. 4. Validate the Payment Method is ACH or CHECK, NOT GIRO on the Payments Tab. 5. The coding on the voucher should be the EXACT coding used on the Direct Journal of the Deposit from OSCIP. Do not code the voucher as a normal Petty Cash Replenishment voucher.
29 Recording Agency Recoveries To record a deposit of non-petty cash advances, it must first be determined what the recovery is for. Recovery of Lost or Damaged State Property - An expenditure was incurred by the agency due to an employees action and the expenditure is to be recovered. The agency initiated the recovery of State funds from an employee. Recoveries initiated by Central Payroll: 1) Record an off-cycle, online replacement check 2) To reverse an employees original pay check.
30 Recovery of Lost or Damaged State Property Recording Miscellaneous Recoveries – –A credit to a revenue account – Use the budgeted fund, SID 18010, Account 44331 Refund of Current Year Expenditure – The deposit should be recorded as –A credit to the Expense Use the same coding as the original expenditure Refund of Prior Year Expenditure – –When the expense was recorded to a continuing appropriation Use the same coding as the original expenditure –When the expense was recorded to a lapsing appropriation Use Original budgeted fund, SID 18010, Account 44410
31 Recoveries initiated by Central Payroll Agency Recovery deductions (Y deductions) should be included on the form when requesting a replacement check to compensate for the deductions that cannot be reversed (CSE credit union, garnishment(s), or Savings Bonds) For example, an employee has the following deductions: Garnishment ($100.00), Savings bond ($100.00) CSE credit union ($100.00) on the original check, The replacement check request form should include an agency recovery for the total amount of $300.00 with a description of each of the non-reversible deductions. The following is an excerpt from the actual petty cash form capturing the process if an OSC employee had a garnishment, CSE Credit Union, and a Savings Bond deduction: Deductions: Deduction Code Deduction Description Deduction Amount YOSC Agcy Recovery for GARNSH, CUCSE, + SAVBND $ 300.00
32 Recoveries initiated by Central Payroll A $300.00 voucher will be created to the agencys Y deduction vendor when a replacement check is issued. The original check will then be reversed by Central Payroll. During the reversal process, deductions for CSE Credit Union, Garnishment, and Savings Bonds are coded to the agencys Y deduction, because the original deduction cannot be recaptured from the vendor. A -$300.00 voucher will then be created to the agencys Y deduction vendor. This offsets the Y deduction created in the replacement check process.
33 Recoveries initiated by Central Payroll Reversals are not always processed in the same pay period as the replacement check. The Reversals create the negative deduction vouchers. Negative vouchers are not processed unless there are positive vouchers to offset the amounts. If the replacement checks deductions are processed immediately, the reversal will not be processed until there are positive vouchers to offset it. Agency recoveries may not appear in AR until the net amount is positive. If there is no replacement for one that is reversed, there will only be a negative voucher. The agency must manually recover the money from the employee and notify Central Payroll when the funds are recovered to eliminate the outstanding voucher.
