P/A Promotions

The P/A Promotion deadline has been extended to March 29, 2013 to provide departments with more time to prepare dossiers.  We are currently reviewing promotional guidelines and criteria for five departments that sent their guidelines, and our goal is to have a response to them by next week.  We appreciate your patience.

To help use prepare, we are asking departments if they can provide us with an indication as to approximately how many promotions they think they will have; an approximate number.  If you can reply to clahr@umn.edu with that information, it will be appreciated.

New PCard Billing Address

The following is a message from Purchasing Services within the Controller's Office:


The Procurement Card Program is announcing that effective February 1, 2013 there will be one standard billing address for all PCard holders. The change is in response to the large number of requests each month from cardholders requesting their billing address. When ordering, especially online, a billing address must match the account perfectly for the transaction to be processed.

If you have your card on file with a vendor, you will need to update your billing address.

The new billing address for PCard transactions, effective February 1, 2013, will be:

University of Minnesota
1300 South Second Street
Minneapolis, MN  55454

If you have questions, please contact the PCard Program office at 612-626-1562
or pcard@umn.edu.

UPDATED FORM: Employee Expense Worksheet (UM1612)

The Employee Expense Worksheet (UM1612) was recently revised and is available online for use effective immediately.  One primary objective of the change is to eliminate the "Statement in Lieu of Receipts" form.  The revised form incorporates this situation and will result in one less form to fill out and less paper overall.  Going forward, this form should be used for all your employee reimbursements.  The Financial Service Teams have been instructed to return older versions of the form. Link to download the new form and view the UM1612 Instructions.pdf for completing the Expense Reimbursement Worksheet (UM1612).

Spring Appointments and Class Lists

CLA Payroll staff have been working diligently to enter spring appointments for returning instructors and assistants by the first day of classes to ensure that these employees will be able to access their class rosters. In the case that units need to submit late appointments, we want to make you are aware of an alternative way to access these class rosters.

·         Go to: www.umreports.umn.edu

·         Type "class list" in search reports field

·         Select either "Class List" or "Class List by Subject - PDF Format"

·         Follow the prompts to arrive at the course for which you need a roster

Administrators and support staff in units should be able to access these lists.

Please submit spring appointments and payroll information to your team as soon as offers have been confirmed and avoid waiting until the last minute if at all possible.

Thank you for your cooperation.
