ACR 30715 — SPRS System Change
Aug. 19, 2011

Introduction

ACR 30715 modified the Standardized Payroll/Personnel Reporting System (SPRS) edit for Language Interpreter Services (LIS) Pay – Reason Code (RC) 048.

Issue

The General Appropriations Act, Article II, Special Provisions Related to All Health and Human Services Agencies, Section 32, changed the rate for LIS pay for employees in these two agencies who provide interpretation services to clients whose primary language is not English:

  • Department of State Health Services (Agency 537)
  • Department of Aging and Disability Services (Agency 539)

Employees on Schedule B who receive LIS pay on or after Sept. 1, 2011, will only be entitled to a salary/rate increase equal to 3.25 percent. There was no change to the LIS pay for Schedule A employees.

Solution

RC 048 was modified for eligible employees on Schedule B who receive LIS pay on or after Sept. 1, 2011, to edit for a salary/rate increase equal to 3.25 percent.

Additionally, RC 048 “off” transactions for eligible employees who received LIS on or after Sept. 1, 2011, must decrease 3.25 percent back to their salary/rate prior to the LIS increase.

Screen/Report/Process/Transaction

Personnel modules were modified.
