Cross campus funding know-how for cross campus collaboration

Avoid surprises by understanding how payroll funding may be affected when cross campus collaboration includes cross campus payroll funding. 

Each campus has specific payroll funding rules for earnings, taxes and benefit deductions, and suspense which are determined by the Department Budget Table.  The business unit entered in position drives the table data.

Beyond basic pay, there are additional rules for determining HCM pay encumbrances, HCM encumbrances for fringe rates, and payroll expense transfers. Actual fringe rate amounts are calculated and applied through FIN, not HCM. Additional pay includes a separate process for posting taxes and deductions based on an exclusion mapping table.

For example, only the tax and retirement cost of some additional pay posts to the additional pay funding override Speedtype, instead of to the position funding.

To compare how payroll is handled between your campus and others, take a look at the chart below.  Remember that even if a SpeedType from a different campus is funding a position on the home campus, the rules for the home campus apply.  Know the funding outcomes before payroll posts and avoid future confusion.
