Positions that are in the approval process during the Fiscal Year transition will require review for the correct budgeting upon approval.

11 Human Resources Update Fiscal Year End – Important Reminders, Continued Agency Position Specialists should identify positions needing a change in FUND, SID or Distribution Percentage of FUND or SID effective 6/5/2009 and should submit those changes for approval in April or early May.

13 Human Resources Update Fiscal Year End Sequence of Events, Continued Agency Position Specialists will have view only access in Position Data from June 15 th to close of business June 19 th. The new budgeting information will be loaded into Core- CT the week of June 15 th and a new row dated June 5, 2009 will be inserted into each position.
14 Human Resources Update Fiscal Year End Sequence of Events, Continued Project Agencies ( DOT, DEP, ITD, DPW, DPH, CSC ) will have new project combination codes available June 5, 2009, effective June 5 th. All other agencies will have new combination codes available on June 16 th, effective dated June 5, These will be built after all existing combinations codes have been “rolled forward” to the new budget year and payroll has completed the final pay cycle of FY09. (approx. 6/15/09)
15 Human Resources Update Fiscal Year End Assistance The HRMS Fiscal Year End Job Aid is available at:
16 Human Resources Update Charges to Another Agency’s Combination Code Agencies occasionally want to check whether another agency is using their combination codes incorrectly. HR users cannot check this due to security access to the data. Financial users can check this once the payroll data is distributed to the General Ledger. Use EPM query: CT_CORE_FIN_GL_OTHER_DEPT_PS (July 07) HR users should check to ensure that they are not inappropriately charging other agencies. A new EPM query was developed to capture all agency charges to other agency’s combo codes to make the review easier: CT_CORE_HR_PYRL_CHG_OTHR_AGY (Mar09)
17 Human Resources Update Charges to Another Agency’s Combination Code, Continued EPM Payroll Reconciliation Queries – Job Aid ct.state.ct.us/epm/docs/prll_rcncltn_qrs.doc ct.state.ct.us/epm/docs/prll_rcncltn_qrs.doc Core-CT will continue to query paid time each pay cycle to find cases where charges seem inadvertent.
18 Human Resources Update Charges to Another Agency’s Combination Code, Continued The majority of such charges result from Additional Pay Earn Codes which have combo code overrides from another agency still active after the employee transfers from another agency. HR/PY users need to check these additional pay pages and ensure that none of the active rows have an inadvertent override at the point the employee transfers.
19 Human Resources Update Longevity First preliminary reports ran on 3/06/2009. Second preliminary reports ran on 3/23/2009. Final processing and reports will take place on Friday, 4/03/2009. Note: reports become available Saturday, 4/04/2009.
20 Human Resources Update Longevity, Continued REMINDER: If an employee is NOT entitled to the longevity payment and the Additional Pay row is loaded, the agency must add in a new row in Additional Pay to terminate the payment. If the agency cancels the payment through Central Payroll, the system will continue to issue the longevity payment until the Additional Pay row is terminated. When manually entering an Addl Pay record for exception employees, do not enter in the Goal Balance amount. The system interprets this field as the amount already having reached its goal. Once the payment is issued, the system inserts the goal amount into the record.
21 Human Resources Update Longevity, Continued
22 Human Resources Update Longevity, Continued REMINDER: Do not insert Longevity Payment into Time and Labor. Longevity Payment should be in Additional Pay in order for the LN1 (Longevity Additive) program to update.
23 Human Resources Update Longevity, Continued Exception 17 Caused by data entering job data rows between 10/01/2008 to 3/31/2009 with an effective date prior to 10/01/2008. Example: Data Change - Performance Appraisal row data entered on 10/15/2008 with an effective dated job data row 9/30/2008 would cause an exception for the Longevity process. These exceptions must be manually entered into Additional Pay (entry can begin now).

Do not change the Refill Indicator field if requesting other types of activity (e.g. on a Reclass of a filled position).
26 Human Resources Update Notepad Please enter a comment in Notepad for every Job Data row. For example: Agencies should indicate why an employee's pay is adjusted or the benchmark for an employee in a VR99 position or that DAS has approved a TSHC request or a transaction is entered as a result of a Stipulated Agreement or Arbitration Award (include the OLR grievance number or other identifying information).
