Overview of FMQuery – Payroll

Updated: April 16, 2015 – View Changes


FMQuery is a state-of-the-art business intelligence tool by Business Objects that gives secure yet broad analytical access to your agency’s financial data.

The tool is available for payroll data from the Uniform Statewide Payroll/Personnel System (USPS) and Standardized Payroll/Personnel Reporting System (SPRS).

Users with security access can pose their own queries against their agency’s data. State employees should complete the Web-based training and attend the hands-on class to effectively use the tool.

Note: Predefined as well as custom reports from certain USPS personnel records are available through FMQuery – SIRS.
