 How does the money paid with a non-taxable reimbursement get charged to USAS? It looks like it doesn't add on to the total payroll expenditure. Is this the way it is supposed to work? If they are using the non taxable reimbursements in Current/Future. It is just not taxing this amount, but it is including it in the direct deposit/check so in some fashion it does need to be accounted for on the USAS accounting side since they are actually paying the employee the money. Obviously the work around for now is having them add that money to the account they want to pay it out of in USAS. The Scenario 4 does make it sound like you could have processed it through payroll, but there is not a non-taxable payment option in classic.

 testing appeared to be including advance amount to high (included amts. from previous FY paid) 

(Andy) It was the earnings that they felt was too high.  I reminded them that earnings includes amount remaining in contract and asked if that accounted for the value they see on the report for earnings.  Have not heard back from them.

4. (Lori) UAT Meeting- The Advance Position Report has a title of Advance Payment Report. The Advance Non-Advance Position Report has a title of Non-Advance Payment Report

 The payroll source id is used when a payroll contains a deferred dock pay type. When the payroll is posted, the deferred dock gets converted to a future pay dock so that it is pulled into the next payroll. However, if the payroll is unposted, we need to remove the future pay dock that was created for the deferred dock. The payroll source id is used to identify the payroll that the dock was created for. We use it to know which future pay docks, if any, to delete if a payroll gets unposted. I'm not so sure this was actually intended to show up on the screen. It was added in April 2019, USPSR-4255. Talked with Andy on this.

You know that in job calendar how you could add a whole month of work days but then go back and right click on a day to change it to a holiday, calamity day, etc.? They want to be able to modify a day/days to change the number of hours, a day to a partial day, or just delete the whole day. So say I had a custodian that worked OT all week but the number of hours are different, I would add the whole week with 2 hours each day and then modify the days that had different hours or delete the one day they didn't work any OT.

What should we have done better?

  • No Federal payroll item code changes MAYBE could have been caught during code reviews if looked at more of the program.

Developer Discussion Items

  1. (Andy) FISCSUP-3761 - Employee's Leave Unit has Not been Successfully Loaded DONE
    1. Employees who are ineligible for sick/vacation/personal, but need to submit a professional leave, for example, in the kiosk are receiving an error that the leave unit is not set.  This is because in redesign, they do not have a Leaves and therefore no leave unit is returned to the kiosk through the soap service.  In redesign, Leaves can not be created for employees who are not eligible for sick/vacation/personal.  Work around is to temporarily make the employee eligible, create the Leaves and set the unit, then make the employee ineligible for leave.
    2. Should leave unit on leaves be required?  Matt recommended we make the change with the soap service and not touch USPS-R.
  2. (Andy)  Should any of our configurations be marked as organization specific?  USAS created an OrganizationConfiguration interface in common for this, but none of the USPS configurations implement it.  The MODULE_CONFIG_ORGANIZATION permission will give access to the configuration screen, but only show configurations that implement OrganizationConfiguration.  The GROUP_MANAGER role was updated to grant the _ORGANIZATION role and therefore users with this role can currently access the configuration screen, but see no configurations listed.  Is this the correct role for GROUP_MANAGER, or should GROUP_MANAGER have MODULE_CONFIG and be able to access all configurations? Create issue and look at each configuration.

    .  Not sure if anything needed to be done in redesign regarding this or if we are okay.  A programmer will double checked on USPS-R.
  4. (Greg) We need to determine if we are going to match Classic behavior when it comes to Other States and Medicare Pickup
    1. For Kentucky (and presumably all Other State type payroll items) Classic does NOT add Medicare Pickup to the Gross or Applicable Gross
    2. Redesign adds Medicare Pickup to Gross and Applicable Gross for Federal, Ohio, (Other) State and OSDI payroll items

  6. (Andy) UAT - tax estimator - the UAT team feels that tax estimator should always display the initial calculation done, whether the calculation is done using values pulled from the last payroll or if the values for the calculation are manually entered.  Then with each subsequent calculation, provide the new calculation in addition to the original calculation.  This differs from the current behavior of always moving the previous calculation to the 'old calculation' fields.  They feel users are more likely to care about what the initial calculation was, and then compare each new calculation to the original values Lori will add as FB issue.  This is an enhancement.  Lori showed to users and they would like it this way too.  They really liked Tax Estimator.
  7. (Andy) UAT - sometimes error report does not include position, why?  Example: Create an issue for this.
