    Employee time data through June 30th must be approved by July 20, 2018.  

    Pursuant to G.S. 143B-426.40H, the Office of the State Controller (OSC) is preparing the State’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The OSC HR/Payroll team utilizes time data for the year-end compensated absences report which is an integral part of the CAFR. Vacation and bonus leave balances from the State’s HR/Payroll system on June 30, 2018, are used in this process and must be up-to-date. Therefore, all Integrated HR/Payroll-serviced agencies must ensure that employee time data through June 30 is recorded, released and approved no later than Friday, July 20, 2018.

    Agencies following the OSC recommendation of employees entering time and managers approving it weekly will not have to make any changes to accomplish this task.  Final reports for CAFR use will be produced on July 26th.  The compensated absence reports will no longer be sent to the agencies except by special request through BEST shared service center, ( or 919-707-0707

    The June 1, 2018 bi-weekly payroll will post in May.

    All BEACON bi-weekly pay days that occur on the 1st,2nd, or 3rd of the month will be posted to the prior month.   Pay days falling on the 1st, or 2nd will have both the GL entries and the CMCS requisitions dated in the prior month.  Pay days falling on the 3rd will post to GL with an effective date of the last day of the prior month and CMCS requisitions posted in the current month as a “set back” to the prior month.    Please be aware that NCAS postings and CMCS requisitions will be dated in the month prior to the pay date.   Please make sure all applicable personnel are made aware of this notification to ensure your agency has the funds available in the month prior to the actual payroll date.
