9 FI$Cal: Transparency. Accuracy. Integrity.9 March 2015 Process OverviewKey Impacts Gross payroll disbursements are initially recorded in the GL as a lump sum, typically in a department’s “Payroll Clearing Account” The Labor Distribution process creates accounting entries to reclassify payroll costs The Accounting entries distribute payroll costs at a lower level of detail based on department-defined rules and/or Activity Sheets As costs are distributed, the process reverses them from the department’s “Payroll Clearing Account” Payroll is reconciled with SCO by FI$Cal Service Center (FSC) before Labor Distribution is run FI$Cal provides three different methods for loading Activity Sheets  Online Entry  Upload from Excel  Interface Departments address errors and rerun Labor Distribution as needed Departments enter Adjustment Activity Sheets to correct errors in previously recorded costs General Ledger Labor Distribution
