Joint Financial/Human Resources Meeting

The main agenda topic for the Financial/HR meeting on Thursday will be the CLA Graduate Student compensation plan for FY 09. This follows an earlier discussion of the college's effort to increase the base pay for graduate students this next year. While this is an important discussion for unit Administrators, it may not be for everyone. If you have an interest, please join us.

The meeting begins at 9:00 am in 102 Fraser Hall.

Please Review Your EFS/PeopleSoft Training Schedule

There have been many changes to the EFS/PeopleSoft training schedules since the original plan was rolled out. Class schedules have been altered, determination of which classes are needed for different roles have changed, and in some cases Training Services converted instructor-led classes to on-line tutorials. It is very important to check your training schedule periodically and especially before going to a training session to make sure you have the latest up-date information for your scheduled classes.

To check your instructor led training class registration: Go to One Stop for staff, then to
the Employee Self-Service section and clicking on the Training Registration\History link (you will need to log-on).

To review online tutorials that you have been registered for:
- Go to One Stop.
- Click on "My U Portal" (you will need to log-on) and then click on the tab labeled "My U Courses and Teaching." You can also initiate tutorials from this location.
If you have questions about your training schedule, please have your supervisor contact Millie Reid in CLA Human Resources (6-7648/

Change: Budget Prep Entry for FY09

Budget Prep entry has changed due to final state appropriation for the University for FY09. Departments now have until Wednesday, May 28 to enter in the CUFS budget prep tables and the last day for RRCs will be Wednesday, June 4. Due to the extension of the budget prep deadline to general users, CLA Fiscal Administration will work towards providing FINAL printed budget sheets prior to the deadline. Our target date is to have information ready by Friday, May 23rd. This will leave only two days to enter budget information for your 1000 and 1506 accounts, so it will be best to have all the rest of your budget prep entry done by this time. If you have questions, please contact Peggy Buckley ( or 6-9812).

The UM Foundation deadline for year-end transfers to CUFS is June 12 at noon. Please review your CUFS accounts in advance to avoid TIP charges for June month-end, and transfer funds where needed.

Reminder that TIP is charged on deficits of $15,000 or more over 1856-xxx total and 1898-xxx total. For questions please contact Rose Pederson (6-7611,
