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. 

The Department Budget Table (DBT) stores default suspense SpeedTypes, and position funding distributions for earnings, taxes and deductions. The position’s business unit determines which specific campus rules to follow. DBT position funding drives most paycheck distributions.

Beyond the DBT, there are additional rules for determining certain pay scenarios. Additional pay posts using the DBT position funding distribution or an override SpeedType. All taxes and deductions post using the same funding rules as the DBT. For UCD/AMC, if the earn code is listed in an additional pay exclusion mapping table, only the associated taxes and deductions for that additional pay post to a SpeedType override.

There are special rules for UCD/AMC SpeedTypes that require a SpeedType override for some post-doc pay and HCM pay encumbrances and HCM encumbrances for fringe rates. Actual fringe rate costs are calculated and applied via FIN, not HCM. Payroll expense transfers also have distribution rules that apply to these transactions.

Sometimes an employee will have a rostered position at one campus but is paid from a SpeedType at another campus. To compare how payroll is handled between different/multiple campuses, see 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.
