    Mar 28, 2023

    Comparison Worksheet:

    A travel Comparison Worksheet is needed when traveling to a neighboring state as sometimes a rental car is cheaper than using a personal vehicle.

    One thing to note is the system doesn’t always provide a location for the destination and the traveler has to choose “All Other Continental US Locations, United States of America” - this is why it is vital that an agenda is attached with the “where/when/why” detailed and adding city/state to the Justification field is very helpful.

  7. Why Does It Appear There is Payroll Activity in Funds From Which No One is Paid?

    Mar 23, 2023

    For every employee there are three levels of worktags associated with them and their position. First the Organizational Assignment, then the Position costing, then the Worker costing. The Worker Costing is typically where actual payroll hits (however, if a worker costing allocation isn't done, payroll actuals will hit the Position costing). Organization Assignments have some worktags restricted from use at this high level (grants and gifts for example). Therefore, we need to use some other funding source at this level.
