The payroll cycle is a process that is completed each time State employees are paid. The payroll cycle consists of the following five basic steps:

The Payroll Cycle is controlled by the Payroll ID. In Pre-payroll the Payroll ID is used to select the employees to be paid. The same Payroll ID is used for all steps of the Payroll Cycle. Different Payroll IDs can be used to process multiple Payroll Cycles simultaneously.

Some reports contain more detailed information when they are printed after print payments and create journal entries. For example, the Payroll Register report may be set up to print during pre-payroll. If printed during pre-payroll the report does not include payment numbers. When this report is printed after the payment process, it includes payment numbers.

The HR/Payroll Contact generates and prints Pay Cycle Reports.
