Authorization and Request Process for Data Changes to Statewide Payroll/Personnel Systems

FPP M.009

Authorizing Employees to Request Data Changes to Statewide Payroll/Personnel Systems

Overview

Only authorized employees may request data changes to statewide payroll and personnel systems.

To… an agency or institution submits…
authorize employees,
revoke authorization, a letter revoking authorization on agency letterhead signed by the head of the agency or its governing body.

Note: New letters and Signature Lists submitted after the biennial update do not replace previous documentation unless the documentation specifically states that it supersedes any previous forms on file. If the documentation does not state this, the Comptroller’s office adds successive documentation to an agency’s authorizations.

Effective date of authorizations and revocations

The Comptroller’s office:

  • Grants authority immediately upon receipt of the letter.
  • Revokes authority on the effective date stated in the letter.

The Comptroller’s office prefers to receive letters revoking authorization before the effective date. If that is not possible, the Comptroller’s office should receive the letter no later than five days after the effective date.
