CMP 308-28: Payroll Expense Transfers


To define the procedure for transferring payroll expenses in the Advantage Financial System


University Policy


In the previous version of the university payroll system, corrections to payroll expenses were made within the PeopleSoft 5.12 system. With the implementation of the new payroll system, it is now necessary to make corrections directly to the University financial system, Advantage. The Payroll Expense Transfer Form is designed to make those correction transfers. The form is to be used only to transfer salary/wage and ERE expenditures between Dept/Units when a retroactive correction is necessary. Expenses that have already been posted to Advantage will be corrected with this form. Any changes to future payroll expense distributions will be processed through the Budget Office using the ePAR process..


Obtain a Payroll Expense form. This form can be obtained here.

1) Fill in the header information (date, box number and phone number)

2) Fill in the pay period for which you are transferring the funds. You may transfer for multiple pay periods in one transaction. Fill in the pay period end date OR the beginning and ending date for the periods you want to transfer.

3) Fill in the information on the accounting lines for each Dept/Unit that you wish to debit. This includes the Dept/Unit, the total amount to transfer and the Employee ID of the person for whom you are transferring expenses. Salary and ERE should be entered in separate lines.

4) Enter the same information in item (3) for the Dept/Unit that you wish to credit.

5) Obtain the Orgn Manager(s) signature on the form.
