October 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 October 2021 payroll must be received by FinanceConnect no later than Thursday, October 14th at 5:00 p.m.

For temporary appointment funding changes, all requests can be emailed directly to FinanceConnect at .

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

Important Reminders:

  • For faculty who are on release time, please review the Reimbursed Time Authorizations guidelines.
  • Payroll expenditures for Fiscal Year 2021/22 will reflect regular/negative pay for the months of July 2021 through June 2022; positive pay salary expenditures (e.g. student salary and overtime) will represent the months of June 2021 through May 2022. Positive pay for Fiscal Year 2022/23 will reflect expenditures for the twelve month period of June 2022 through May 2023.
