  • Access pertinent information on unit payrolls (for reporting)
  • Expect confidentiality


Assessment Process

General process currently followed:

  1. Methods for gathering data on our office include such things as:
    • A technical writer consultant was hired to develop a detailed process, workflows, and procedures document to be used as a baseline of what currently exists. This work consulted various units across the college including Faculty Payroll, Office of Instruction, Student Affairs, Accounting, Timekeepers, Payroll Staff, and HR.
    • Payroll staff will review the "As Is" materials and identify areas for improvement, including better internal control. 
    • Use ARGOS reporting to gather data from BANNER (post audits).
    • Software (Jira-like) where all documents that come into payroll can be logged in, and response rates tracked.
    • College-wide survey (employee survey) -- every four years
  2. Gathered data are reviewed by Associate Dean of Payroll and staff, analyzed, summarized, and studied for areas of improvement. Results shared through annual progress reports and Program Review.
  3. Improvements are implemented in as timely and effective a manner as possible. These improvements are then re-evaluated in the next assessment cycle to ensure they are working and we are continuing to meet our goals.
