December 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 December 2013 payroll must be received in the Budget & Risk Management Office no later than Monday, December 23, at 5:00 p.m.

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

Alicia Wagner
Budget & Risk Management 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 our 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 Budget & Risk Management Office.

We cannot guarantee that requests for changes received after the deadline will be captured for the December 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

November Accounting Period Close

For employees who track or manage department budgets, please note that the month of November 2013 is now closed in the CFS Finance System.

November transactions can still be entered into the GL system, but the Journal Date must be 12/1/2013 or later. Periods currently open are December 2013 through June 2014.
