You can run the No Appointment Level Funding Report to display the names of new or existing employees that may not have funding properly set up in PeopleSoft HRS prior to the Payroll Confirmation for the current Pay Run ID. The query should be run for your particular campus, division or department after each nightly preliminary payroll calculation (e.g. Monday morning, Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning) of a payroll processing week.
The query results display employees who have calculated pay, but are missing either Appointment or Position level funding for all or part of their pay period. For each unique Org Dept listed on the No Appt-Level Funding Report results, you will need to determine whether or not Department-level funding exists for the current fiscal year. In the absence of either Appointment or Position-level funding, the salary expense will be distributed to Department-level funding, if it was previously added. Otherwise, the employee's salary expense will be distributed to PRSUSP (Payroll Suspense).
For more information about the different levels of salary funding and how they are distributed at the time of payroll processing, refer to HRS KnowledgeBase document 21872, Salary Funding Levels Assigned During Payroll Processing.
NOTE: If your campus/division/department business process dictates that certain types of appointments (i.e. Student Help) will be funded with Department-level funding instead of Appointment-level funding, please disregard these types of employees on the report results.
