Associate Vice President Jeff West has published an official Rule meant to serve as authoritative clarification for departmental decisions and procedures surrounding electronic initiation and approval of payroll transactions.
This Rule coincides with the related implementation of the ePAF system and the editorial changes to PPM 3-7. These changes are to strengthen statements, minimize financial risk to the University, and to update terminology allowing for electronic work-flow procedures.
We encourage departments to review both PPM 3-7 and the associated Rule entitled, “Initiating and Approving Electronic Transactions,” and to carefully consider procedures of signature authority and responsible delegation.
