Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS)

What’s New

Fiscal 2020 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 no later than 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.

Refer to Payroll Due Dates and Direct Deposit Schedules (FPP E.030) for more information, including the fiscal 2020 payroll due dates and direct deposit schedule.

Reminder – Authorization Updates Due for Changes to Statewide Payroll/Personnel Systems

Letter of Authorization (LOA) Signature Lists currently on file for HRIS, SPRS, USPS and CAPPS will expire on May 31.

By May 31, each agency and institution of higher education must submit the names of authorized employees and a new LOA Signature List form. Beginning June 1, only newly authorized state employees may request data changes.

See Authorization and Request Process for Data Changes to Statewide Payroll/Personnel Systems (FPP M.009) for instructions.
