ZP116 - BR9B Report  Issued 07/29/05

It's that time of year for budget preparation for fiscal year 2006-2007. With that in mind, it may be time to begin running the BR9B in ISIS HR.

BEFORE YOU START, IT IS SUGGESTED THAT YOU REVIEW THEZP116 BR9B REPORT DOCUMENTATION AVAILABLE INISIS HR ONLINE HELP.

ALSO, AGENCIES SHOULD RUN THEZX02 MISMATCH REPORT IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY ERRORS THAT WILL PRODUCE INVALID BR9B REPORT RESULTS.

It is imperative that the Employee Subgroup and Personnel Subarea that are stored in Organizational Management on the position match the Employee Subgroup and Personnel Subarea on the incumbents Org Assignment Infotype (0001). If these hierarchical elements do not match, the position and incumbent will not be output on the BR9B.

A FEW POINTS TO REMEMBER:

The BR9B runs either for filled OR vacant positions, NOT both at the same time. This is because data is selected very differently for these types, so make sure you understand where the data comes from in each case.

FILLED POSITIONS:

If, for the specified effective date (as entered in the date parameter selection), the position is filled, the position will be selected. The report selects all salary objects, not just the ones identified as T/O (2100, 2130 and 5200).

The information on the BR9B for a FILLED position comes from EMPLOYEE data:

  • Salary object is derived from the Personnel Subarea on the employees Organizational Assignment Infotype (IT0001);
  • Cost Center from Organizational Assignment Infotype (IT0001);
  • Biweekly Salary from Basic Pay Infotype (IT0008);
  • Merit Date and Next CPG Eligibility Date are determined from the Date Specifications Infotype (IT0041);
  • Employer Medical is determined from the Health Plan Infotype (IT0167);
  • Employer Life is determined from the Insurance Plan Infotype (IT0168);
  • ER Retirement is determined from the Savings Plan Infotype (IT0169);
  • ER OSDI and ER Medicare are determined by the Tax Model on the employees Organizational Assignment Infotype (IT0001);
  • Other Pay is the actual FYTD totals for the employee for the previous fiscal year for premium pay and on-call.

VACANT POSITONS:

Because of the large number of unfunded vacancies, agencies MUST identify which vacant positions are to be selected for the BR9B. This is done by indicating an X in the Planned Vacancy field on the Positions Department/Staff Infotype. NOTE: Regardless of an X in the Planned Vacancy field, the position MUST be vacant (no holder relationship) for the specified effective date (as entered in the date parameter selection when running ZP116).

The information on the BR9B for a VACANT position comes from ORG MANAGEMENT data:

  • Salary object is derived from the Personnel Subarea on the Positions Account Assignment Infotype;
  • Cost Centerfrom thePositionsCostCenter relationship, if present, or inherited from the org unitsCost Centerrelationship;
  • ER share for Health, Life and Retirement are defined on the Job Cost Planning Infotype. These are default fixed values for max ($50,000 coverage) life insurance amount ($276.00), Employee w/ Spouse coverage ($7,393.00) and retirement percentage (19.10%).

For Classified positions ONLY, on the Job Cost Planning the midpoint of the pay grade is defined to be used as the salary projection.

Improvements to Employee Benefit Arrears Report (ZP98) Issued 07/22/05

ZP98 Employee Benefit Arrears Report has been modified to accommodate running at any time to retrieve an OGB benefit plan arrears amount. Previously, this report was only accurate every other pay period, pending the processing of the adjustment wage types.

Other improvements:

Wage type column is now populated during recovery periods

Balance owed is on the same line as plan wage type

Arrears totals no longer combine multiple plans

Each plan will now total on a separate line of the report

NOTE: The changes and improvements to this report will aid in tracking and recovering employee benefit arrears.

The online help for the following scripts has also been modified:

Benefit Arrears/EE Check

Arrears Recovery for Benefits Deduction

HR Arrears/Payment to Group Benefits and Recovery

These changes will clarify the procedure for selecting the appropriate wage type for the payment/deduction being created. A new Example Scenario has been added to the HR Arrears/Payment to Group Benefits and Recovery Script.
