Issue Resolved: FY21 Spend commitments liquidated in FY22

Known Issue: We’ve corrected the issue where available balances in FY22 appeared inflated in reports that included commitments.

Estimated Time to Resolution: Resolved.

Details: A timing issue with fiscal year end resulted in spend commitment liquidations processed between July 1 and July 12 having the potential to liquidate a commitment within FY22, but the corresponding FY21 commitment did not carry forward, leaving a negative commitment in FY22. This may have caused available balances for FY22 to appear inflated in reports that include commitments. Modernization and the Controller’s Office worked together to resolve the issue using a journal (JE0000067477), and are discussing how to avoid a similar issue in future fiscal years.

Issue Resolved: FICA exemption integration

Known Issue: The FICA exemption integration from myWSU to Workday caused some students to be incorrectly marked as non-exempt for the first FLSA sub-period of the first pay cycle of the fall. If a student should be exempt from FICA, we will move non-student hours to student hours or work-study to correct this.

Estimated Time to Resolution: Before next payday on 9/24/2021 » More …

Issue Resolved: Constrained proxy resolves retro period access issue

Known Issue: As reported previously, Retro Period information was removed from several reports due to security concerns. A new process called constrained proxy restores access to this information.

Estimated Time to Resolution: Resolved.

Details: Constrained proxy is a new Workday feature that allows you to run specific Workday reports as another person. Because you’re using the other person’s security roles, you’ll see additional data in those reports, including the Payroll Results Line details that include the Retro Period information that was removed due to security concerns. Learn more about constrained proxy and which reports are available here.
