Below are some helpful ways of using the Payroll Funding report:

  • The 9 columns of the chart of account segments will be blank when a project has been applied to cover the payroll transaction.
  • Run the report one week before each payroll deadline if expecting any changes to ensure the charge account information is correct. If it’s not correct or the information has not been updated, contact the Payroll Office to follow-up on the request.
  • The various prompts allow for a lot of flexibility in running the report to your individual needs. For example, you can run it one organization at a time or for multiple organizations at a time, or you can run it specifically by an employee name.
