From staff reports
On Dec. 19, the Ohio University Payroll Department sent the following email to all faculty and staff about the pay cycle change:
On November 5, Executive Vice President and Provost
Pam Benoit and Vice President for Finance and Administration
Steve Golding sent out an email notifying 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. As the year ends, we want to draw your attention to this matter again.
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.
