Budgeting and Payroll Services

The Office of Budgeting and Payroll Services is a component of Fiscal Services and part of the Division of Business Affairs.  It can be broken down into three distinct functions.

The first area is concerned with the more traditional budget functions defined as the direction of budgetary processes to include policy recommendation and interpretation; the development of budgetary procedures; the analysis of existing and proposed programs and financial requirements; the internal budgetary process; the analysis of accounts for deficits and/or surplus funds; working with program and fund administrators to evaluate budgetary control and provide training. The staff in this area consists of the Sr. Budget and Financial Reporting Manager, Dawn Brandt, and a Budget Analyst, Lindsey Grandshaw.

The second is the area of personal services budgeting and position control. This includes the responsibility for the management and operation of a position control system which is the central component of the personnel / payroll system consisting of all state approved FTE (full-time equivalent) positions (faculty and staff) as well as all temporary employees, adjunct faculty and students. This includes maintenance of detail such as funding sources, authorized positions, and assignment of data necessary to link employees to payroll. The staff in this area consists of the Position Control Manager, Edward H. Jordan III and a Personal Services Budget Coordinator, Tiffany Young.

The third is the actual generation of pay through the payroll process. This includes the review and management of time-input of hours worked for temporary and student employees, as well as all leave and adjustments for all employees. Additionally, the Payroll Office monitors and manages the pay generated, the distribution of pay, and the remittance of carrier bills, taxes, and other deductions. The staff in this area consists of the Payroll Manager, Cheryl Drum, and a Sr. Payroll Analyst, Shantelle Jefferson.

These functions are supported by Barbara Szydlo, Fiscal Services Business Analyst and managed by J. Everett McInnis, Associate Vice President of Budgeting & Payroll Services.
