Audit Instructions

  1. Time to be Paid (Items 606/607) must be completed for academic year employees who change positions in the middle of an academic pay period.

  2. Before processing a Transaction 120, verify the PSN screen to make sure the position being entered does not already exist.  For additional information, refer to the system audits for Position Number (Items 120-123).

  3. Do not process an out of sequence Transaction 120 for an academic employee who has been separated and Final Settlement Item 810 was completed. Submit a Transaction 120 with all corrections and CLF to CSU Audits to process. If this is not sent in, final settlement will issue again in the new position number. This may also apply to any appointment or change in status transaction where a separation with Final Settlement (Item 810) is entered.  Refer to Item 810 for additional information.
