Important Notes

'Amount' represents the salary paid for past pay periods and the projected salary for future pay periods. Amounts are negative for salary cost transfers or corrections to prior pay periods.

Employees may be listed multiple times because data is displayed according to funding and pay period. Therefore, do not use this data for official counts. To calculate an employee's total salary for a given time period, sum all applicable rows.

Projections are generated from the Salary Projection Star schema in WISDM for the current and next fiscal year according to these following formulas:
Classified employees: (UW_Comp_Rate*HRS_FTE*Funding_Pct)*2
Unclassified employees: UW_Comp_Rate*HRS_FTE*Funding_Pct
Projections assume the latest funding information in the current fiscal year will roll over into the new fiscal year, that no changes are entered into HRS and that bi-weekly employees work the scheduled number of hours. Encumbrances are only approximate calculations.
