4 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 4 Session Overview The Banner 2000 Human Resource Management System (HRMS) has the ability to perform inquiries on labor information using forms. These inquiries are performed using virtually any type of form such as inquiry, maintenance, and application forms. This session will focus on the most popular inquiries you might use on the job. HRMS is similar to the current Human Resources System; where applicable, we will identify the equivalent HRS screen for each form. 

5 Review: HRMS Concepts

6 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 6 Overview All Banner modules at WSU (FMS, HRMS, SIS, etc.) work in conjunction. Quite often, HRMS users will need to interact with the FMS financial data in HRMS forms to learn about budgets, and salaries. To effectively use any such financial-related functions, you must understand the concept of FOAPAL. Perhaps the most significant change in the way WSU does business has to do with how HRMS treats positions. The basic change is that each employee will receive a position number that is unique to them. However, assuming an employee leaves WSU, an employee who is hired to replace them, can assume that position number. In the next few pages you will review the meaning of FOAPAL codes and how positions and employee classes (E-classes) are defined. Review: HRMS Concepts Overview & Agenda Agenda Topic 1:Define FOAPAL and Index Codes Topic 2:HR Positions and E-classes  REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Overview & Agenda

7 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 7 Topic 1: Define FOAPAL and Index Codes The FOAPAL string of codes is the core of the Banner Financial Management System (FMS), and, as such, is very important to all HRMS users. FOAPAL is the hierarchy coding system FMS uses for classification, budgeting, and recording. It also gives users the ability of reporting and making inquiries at multiple levels. Let’s briefly recall what the elements that comprise FOAPAL are: Fund Organization Account Program Activity (not currently used at WSU) Location (not currently used at WSU; except for plant fund) What you will review in this topic: The definition of FOAPAL terms The definition of FOAPAL acronyms The definition of a Index Code and how it relates to FOAPAL Items needed to complete this topic: None  REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Topic 1: Define FOAPAL and Index Codes

8 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 8 Discussion: Define FOAPAL Terms Fund identifies the source from which the money is being drawn. ( NOTE: in General Fund, “ Fund ” = “ Boardline ” in most cases) Organization identifies the budget unit of the school, college, division, or department that is processing the transaction. Account identifies what financial activity is being recorded. Examples: assets, liabilities, fund balance, revenues, expenditures, transfer. (NOTE: Account is the new term for the old HRS Object code) Program identifies the purpose of the transaction.  REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Topic 1: Define FOAPAL and Index Codes Other Useful Terms Chart of Accounts is a systematic classification of accounts within HRMS. WSU uses only one COA: W Pool Accounts are account codes where budget is loaded.

10 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 10 Discussion: Define Index Code and How It Relates to FOAPAL Index Code is a six character code that serves as a shortcut to many of the FOAPAL string combinations. (NOTE: Index Code is the new term for the old HRS A ccount Number ) The index code will typically automatically populate the Fund, Orgn, and Prog fields! Note that you must always provide the Account Code (Acct) yourself. This is important to remember when performing inquiries based on a specific FOAPAL string.  Index Code REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Topic 1: Define FOAPAL and Index Codes

11 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 11 Topic 2: HR Positions and E-classes As stated before, the most significant change in how HRMS affects WSU business processes is its treatment of position numbers. Over the next few pages, you will learn how to make the transition from the “old” way to the “new” way…the HRMS way. What you will review in this topic: The comparisons between HRS and HRMS positions and position numbers The numbering conventions for positions The comparisons between HRS and HRMS of E-Classes and other information Items needed to complete this topic: None  REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Topic 2: Identify HR Positions and E-classes

12 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 12 Discussion: Compare HRS & HRMS Positions & Position Numbers  HRSHRMS Any general fund position is defined as a six digit number Inability to track positions (i.e. who belongs to what department) No departmental ownership Each * employee who receives benefits (I.e. “regular” employee) from WSU will have an individual position number that is specific to that employee’s job while at WSU. Position number no longer has any relation to funding. Funding for a position is now detailed in its unique FOAPAL strings. Ability to track positions Position ownership is now transferred to the department Few group positions (i.e. student position) Group positions are not considered to be at the department level Now known as pooled positions Pooled positions can have more than one occupant Employees in groups where the relationship with the university is more casual will have pooled positions. Pooled positions are at the department level * Except graduate student assistants REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Topic 2: Identify HR Positions and E-classes

13 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 13 Discussion: Compare HRS & HRMS Positions & Position Numbers  Other Considerations A person should not have more than one position number unless they are working two separate jobs. If you leave WSU, your position number will still exist and another employee may assume your position and position number. REVIEW: HRMS & WSU BUSINESS PROCESSES Topic 2: Identify HR Positions and E-classes

14 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 14 Discussion: Numbering Conventions for Positions  Position numbers will begin with their respective single-character acronym (see below) followed by five numbers beginning with and descending from that number (see table below for listing).

Lesson Agenda: Topic 1:Payroll Distribution Inquiry Topic 2: Earnings Inquiry

54 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 54 Review Previous Learning When performing inquiries/queries if there is not an option to make the query case sensitive; assume it is. Use the Employee Jobs Form (NBAJOBS) to inquire about an employee’s position. Use the Position Budget Form (NBAPBUD) to inquire about the budget and labor distributions of a specific position.  LESSON 3: LABOR HISTORY INQUIRIES Previous Learning

55 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 55 Topic 1: Payroll Distribution Inquiry LESSON 3: LABOR HISTORY INQUIRIES Topic 1: Payroll Distribution Inquiry  Payroll distribution data is available for search using form NHIDIST. This information can be displayed using different criteria for searches, including the COA (Chart of Accounts), FOAPAL elements, category, and date range. You can also use NHIDIST to look at labor distributions for a specific employee from a historical standpoint as well as a financial standpoint for what payroll dollar amounts are being expensed to a particular account. You’ll also be able to see labor distribution changes for a specific person with a small degree of accuracy. Due to the systems lack of ability to enter retroactive changes to labor distribution this information may be incomplete. The history viewed here will not have the true effective date so it may be incomplete. For more accurate data, you should use an e- report (i.e. the Cumulative Labor Distribution by Fund/Org/Prog report). What you will learn in this topic: How to perform payroll distribution inquiries Items needed to complete this topic: Finance Document Number (if available) Date to query COA (“W” for Wayne State University) FOAPAL element(s) Employee ID/Name

56 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 56 Procedure: Payroll Distribution Inquiry 1.With NHIDIST displayed on your screen, fill in the COA field (Chart of Accounts) box (at the present time this will be W, and it should be filled in automatically). 2. Enter the FROM DATE field with the beginning date of the time period your inquiry will include and enter the TO DATE field with the ending date of the period you want your inquiry to cover. NOTE : When entering the To Date value, ensure that it corresponds to the Check Date for that pay period. If you need to see the check dates, you can look at the Payroll Calendar Rule Form (PTRCALN).  1 2 LESSON 3: LABOR HISTORY INQUIRIES Topic 1: Payroll Distribution Inquiry

62 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 62 Procedure: Payroll Distribution Inquiry (cont.) NOTE : This inquiry could be done without specifying any of the FOAPAL elements in the upper block of NHIDIST, but the large number of records returned by this kind of search would be difficult to work with. A better approach: narrow your search when you first submit it (in the upper block of the form). This way, records that do not match your search criteria will not be returned from the search. As a result, there are less records to sort through in the lower block of the NHIDIST when you search within your search hits.  LESSON 3: LABOR HISTORY INQUIRIES Topic 1: Payroll Distribution Inquiry

LESSON 3: LABOR HISTORY INQUIRIES Topic 2: Earnings Inquiry

75 Version 7.7 May 29, 2002 BackForwardIndex Exit Page: 75 Procedure: Reading Data from NHIEDST “FC” is used to designate composite fringe benefits. This takes a calculated rate (that changes each year) in a specified table based on e-class and multiplies the salary by that rate. Units will not be charged “actual fringe expenses”. There will always be a difference between actual fringe charges and calculated composite rate charges. This difference (over or under recovery) is accommodated when the composite rate is calculated each year. Furthermore, for general fund indexes (except for a few), a corresponding budget entry that equals the composite fringe expense is done each pay period. This leaves no impact on the unit’s available balance. However, grants use this composite fringe expense to determine their true costs.  “FC” LESSON 3: LABOR HISTORY INQUIRIES Topic 2: Earnings Inquiry
