July 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 July 2021 payroll must be received by Finance Support no later than Thursday, July 15th at 5:00 p.m.

For temporary appointment funding changes, all requests can be emailed directly to Finance Support at financeconnect@sjsu.edu.

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

Please refer to Labor Cost Distribution for information regarding the LCD process and Temporary Appointment Funding Changes for instructions on completing the Employee Profile form. If you have any questions about LCD processing, please contact Finance Support at financeconnect@sjsu.edu  or 4-1558.
