Distribution Setup (HR)

Redistributions are used to adjust all payroll charges, including salary and benefits, made in previous periods. This includes both monthly and biweekly payroll charges.

  • These adjustments are reflected in the Labor Distribution Report in the month in which they are processed, with the corresponding Pay Run ID of the pay period being adjusted.
  • The journal entries are also reflected in the Financial System in the month in which they are processed.
  • Paychecks for both monthly and biweekly employees are automatically available for redistribution once the payroll has processed.

Redistributions affecting ledger 5 (contract/grant) project IDs must be prepared on a timely basis — no later than 90 days after payroll charges post to the account. When a redistribution is entered into the system after the 90-day period (three pay cycles for monthly employees and six pay cycles for biweekly employees), the user will receive a system-generated notification that the redistribution is out of compliance and requires additional justification and approval. The action status will remain ‘Pending’ in the system until the justification has been approved by the Director of the Office of Contracts and Grants. Once approved, the action will be system-approved by C and G personnel and processed in the subsequent payroll period.

  • Log in to MyPack Portal.
  • Go to: Human Resources Systems > Commitment Accounting > NCSU Redistributions > Update/Inquiry Redistribution.
