FS Payroll

Department: 
Facilities Employee Services (FES)
Problem: 

The existing process is complicated and time-consuming. FS payroll staff has too little time to process and verify payroll data; when errors occur, lengthy overpayment procedures are needed to collect money from employees.

Goal: 
  • Increase timeliness, accuracy and completeness of timecard information to payroll coordinators by the day after cut off to 100%
