Express Retro Payroll Request

Payroll expenditure redistributions, which are used to transfer payroll charges from one combo code to another, are initiated by processing an Express Direct Retro through Manager Self Service in OneUSG Connect.  There are several circumstances where System Managers are not able to submit an Express Direct Retro, in OneUSG Connect, to redistribute payroll expenditures that have already posted to the general ledger.  In the scenarios outlined below, a request will need to be submitted for Commitment Accounting to process the Express Direct Retro.  If the Express Direct Retro (EDR) transaction does not meet one of the scenarios outlined below, then the System Manager can submit the EDR request via Manager Self Service in OneUSG Connect.  The scenarios are:
