Bi-monthly pay cycle for salaried employees begins in January

Ohio University Executive Vice President and Provost Pam Benoit and Vice President for Finance and Administration Stephen Golding recently sent an e-mail to the entire University community about OHIO's pay cycle:

Dear Colleagues,

This memo provides notice to Ohio University salaried staff, that effective January 2013, the end-of-month pay cycle (the last day of the month) will be converting to a semi-monthly pay cycle.

This adjustment in pay cycle will allow the university to move over time from multiple pay periods (faculty, administrative, classified, student hourly, postdoctoral, and graduate student teaching and
research assistantships) to a consolidated approach to payrolls. Payroll consolidation offers the opportunity to increase functionality and reduce administrative costs.

Under the current pay cycle, Ohio University pays full or part-time administrative staff on presidential appointments, once per month on the last day of each month. Current pay dates under this pay cycle are July 31, August 31, September 30, October 31, November 30, December 31, January 31, February 27, March 31, April 30, May 31, and June 30.

Beginning in January 2013, this pay cycle will change to a semi-monthly pay cycle that pays twice per month on the 15th and the last day of the month.

We anticipate that there may be a need for additional information concerning this change. If you have questions please contact the Payroll Office at 593-1862. A set of "frequently asked questions" will
be available on November 5 at http://www.ohio.edu/finance/payroll/index.cfm.
