Biweekly Payroll Cycles for December 2019

TRS Deadline Calendar:

Changes to Dec. 1 – 14, 2019 B2 Cycle

As shown in red above, the supervisor deadline for the Time Reporting System (TRS) has been moved earlier to Noon on Dec. 16. The deadline for DTAs is one day earlier than previously communicated. The IDTC Roster and EDB/EDAT deadlines are also one day earlier. The dates for the B2 cycle were moved earlier to allow for additional processing at UCOP to fix an issue identified as part of the monthly conversion process. Meeting these deadlines is extremely important as the Payroll Office will have limited time to correct issues.

Changes to Dec. 15 – 28, 2019 B1 Cycle

DTAs should also take note of the very early deadlines for the pay period from Dec. 15 – 28. 2019. In particular, DTAs will need to submit all of their unit’s time by noon on Friday, Dec. 20. Employees and supervisors are being notified of the above dates via Zotmail this week.

Participate in a Campus-Wide Conference Call

Accounting & Fiscal Services will host three conference calls this week to discuss these deadlines with campus payroll processors, department time administrators, and other members of the campus financial community. Click one of the links below to add the conference call to your calendar: 

All three calls will cover the same information and should last about 30 minutes. The dial-in number and the Meeting ID number are included in the calendar links.
