Submitting Employee Awards


Supplemental Pay refers to Supplements or Extra Compensation payments. In this article, you will learn the steps to submit a Supplemental Employee Award in OneUSG Connect.


Employee awards must be approved by USG before the below award process can begin. If you have an award that has not yet been approved by USG, please submit the Employee Award Form via MSS. University HR will review and forward to USG. Once you have UHR's signature, this form should be attached to the MSS transaction in the process below. This form only requires UHR’s signature the first time the initial award is submitted for approval. Here are the high level steps of the process, with detailed instructions on the MSS submission below. 

  1. Determine award recipient based on the USG-approved award program.
  2. If a unit is awarding net value, skip to step 4. If the unit plans to "gross up" and cover taxes, go to step 3.
  3. If grossing up, contact to calculate the gross up amount.
  4. Enter award in OneUSG Connect MSS (instructions below) using departmental UGAF combo code. Attach the fully signed Employee Award Form
  5. Track the award to ensure approval/loads via the Additional Pay Query Group. (These will appear on queries once Payroll has entered the information.)
