May LCD Processing


To personnel with Labor Cost Distribution (LCD) responsibilities, this is the monthly reminder to confirm your salary information by running your LCD Setup Audit.

Any changes to the distribution of funding for payroll expenses that you would like made for May 2013 payroll must be received in the University Budget Office no later than Wednesday, May 29, at 5:00 p.m.

For staff member changes, all requests can be submitted directly to the University Budget Office:

Alicia Wagner

University Budget Office, CL 500

Extended Zip 0004

For faculty who are on release time and/or any split funding changes, employee profile requests must be approved by the Dean’s Office prior to submittal to the University Budget Office. The Release Time Authorization (RTA) form for faculty on release time with the Research Foundation should be sent to Faculty Affairs – please do not send the RTA form to the University Budget Office.

We cannot guarantee that requests for changes received after the deadline will be captured for the May payroll cycle.

Reminder: Payroll expenditures for Fiscal Year 2012/13 will reflect regular/negative pay for the months of July 2012 through June 2013; positive pay salary expenditures (e.g. student salary and overtime) will represent the months of June 2012 through May 2013. Positive pay for Fiscal Year 2013/14 will reflect expenditures for the twelve month period of June 2013 through May 2014.

If you have any questions, please contact Alicia Wagner at


April Accounting Period Close


For employees who track or manage department budgets, the month of April 2013 is now closed in the CFS Finance system.

This means that the General Ledger (GL) system will not accept any more entries with a April Journal Date. (April transactions can still be entered into the GL, but the Journal Date must be changed to 5/1/2013 or later.)  For that reason, we do not close the month until most transactions, in particular payroll and billings, have fed to the GL. Periods currently open are May 2013 through June 2013.
