“Missing Cost Distributions” Report

May 23rd, 2012 in Reporting

Payroll Coordinators

We have implemented a new program that updates the Missing Cost Distributions to ensure payroll runs smoothly. One day prior to the weekly and monthly payroll runs, a report will be distributed to Payroll Coordinators listing those employees whose HR records (containing expired or invalid cost distributions) have been updated by this program.  A sample report is provided below.

Action Required: If you receive a report, prior to the next scheduled payroll run, submit the appropriate form to update the employee’s cost distribution with the correct distribution information. The next time payroll is run, the incorrect distribution will be reversed and replaced with the corrected distribution (fund center, internal order, or specified grant).  If you have any questions, please contact the Payroll Office please contact BU Payroll at 617-353-2270 or e-mail bupay@bu.edu.

Sincerely,
