Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS)

What’s New

Third Quarter Payables and Binding Encumbrances Due

State agencies and institutions of higher education must report payables and binding encumbrances for third quarter fiscal 2020 appropriations to the Comptroller’s office by June 30.

Agencies must enter quarterly certification in the online form.

See Encumbrance Report and Lapsing of Appropriations (APS 018) (FPP A.019) for more information.

Fiscal 2021 Payroll Due Dates and Direct Deposit Schedule Posted

For state agencies and institutions of higher education, the payroll due date for monthly and twice-monthly payrolls is the seventh workday before payday.

Submitting your payrolls to the Comptroller’s office on or before the due dates ensures adequate processing time for direct deposits and warrant distribution

See Payroll Due Dates and Direct Deposit Schedules (FPP E.030) for more information, including the fiscal 2021 payroll due dates and direct deposit schedule.
