Beginning in FY15, EMIS has switched from "Reporting Periods" to "Data Sets".   Staff data is collected as part of the L data set.  There will be various reporting "windows" for collecting the Staff data.  Supplemental jobs will be reported continuously through the reporting windows.   

OECN$USPS_EMIS_FY Logical - Classic

The OECN$USPS_EMIS_FY logical is used by the USPS SIF agent and the USPS web application for attendance calculations.  This logical should be set to the appropriate fiscal year when the prior FY's Staff reporting has closed and the new/current FY's staff reporting is starting.  

Redesign Troubleshooting

If a SIF collection in redesign is generating errors in the zone.log, but is not giving details as to what element is causing the issue, it may be beneficial to run the EMIS Position report from the Reports / EMIS Reports menu item.  If no errors are found on the report then the data conversion on the USPS side of things completed correctlyIf there is an invalid value in one of the EMIS reporting fields, this report should indicate where the issue lies.

October (K) reporting

Supplemental jobs are not reported during the October reporting period.  To prevent supplemental positions from being included in the collection, on the third screen of USPSDAT/USPCON there is an EMIS reporting period flag.  This should be set to K.
