The University Corporation - Payroll Department
Semi-Monthly (15th and last day of the month)
A complete and correct appointment with The University Corporation must be presented to the TUC-Payroll Department before any payments can be made. The University Corporation has subcontracted with the CSUN-Office of Human Resources (OHR) to process all TUC-appointments. The Principal Investigator must ensure that for all employees to be paid, a TUC-appointment has been processed by OHR and is filed with TUC-Payroll.
The form 'Salary Payment Authorization' is used to request salary payments. Additionally, for non professionals (staff employees) there must be an attendance report submitted each period indicating dates and hours worked or absent. The Principal Investigator or his designated authorized signer must sign both the salary authorization and attendance report. The authorization can either be submitted for one or several pay-periods, up to a maximum of 12 pay-periods.
Coding of the Accounting String
The Salary Payment Authorization must be coded with an 'Accounting String' to ensure the proper allocation of the expenses to the correct project and the correct account.
