This issue has been resolved. Journal Detail is now available in the PDF bundle from EOR.
It has come to the attention of Financial and Business Services that printed Management Reports obtained through the Evidence of Review application are not generating properly. We are looking into this issue and will provide an update when available. Management Reports accessed on-line are not experiencing any issues at this time.
Work-Study funded students must be placed in their first fiscal-year job no later than 09/29/17. Departments intending to employ a work-study student for the 16/17 fiscal-year must submit their Job Referral Notice (JRN) requests no later than 09/29/17. Students without a current fiscal-year JRN by 09/29/17will lose their work-study funding and cannot be hired in the work-study program.
Payroll accounting for work-study employees must be correct by the pay period ending 09/30/17. If the payroll accounting is not correct, the student may lose their work-study funding and the employer will not be able to hire the student as a work-study employee after 09/30/17.
Please review your records for the following:
1) You must have a current JRN. The JRN authorizes the student to work for a specific department for a specified period of time. The JRN also indicates the authorized account number that must be used in order to utilize work-study funding.
2) The chartfield distribution on the e-PAF must include the Org ID and account number that is authorized on the JRN.
3) Please be aware that wages charged to any ORG ID and/or account number other than those authorized on the JRN, are an indication that the student is not set up as a work-study employee. Carefully review your payroll reports. Errors not resolved with the FWS Coordinator during the subsequent pay period may cause the student to lose their work-study funding.
If you have any questions regarding this notice or about a student’s work-study status, please contact the FWS coordinator at email@example.com.

As we approach the deadline for invoice processing, please be aware that invoices exceeding $50,000 require approval by the account executive or approved alternate as defined by GFA.
