UCPath Salary Cost Transfer Redesign Is Now Live

On November 13, the UCPath Center successfully completed the implementation of the redesigned Salary Cost Transfer process.

Accessing Salary Cost Transfer Pages

Moving forward, Salary Cost Transfer Initiators and Approvers can access the new salary cost transfer pages from the Direct Retro folder within General Ledger Administration. You may want to create new favorites for these pages for quick access if you haven’t already.

All transfers required on paychecks prior to October 2021 should be reviewed and completed as soon as possible. The existing direct retro pages will remain available in UCPath only for a limited time after go-live. Once decommissioned, transactors will lose access to transfer paychecks prior to October 2021 and to redistribute earnings that were previously transferred using the Direct Retro tool.

You can review details for all open issues on the UCPath at UCSF website (opens in new window). Contact the Controller’s Office Solution Center to report a potential issue.

Canceled Funding Entry and Salary Cost Transfer Transactions

Any funding entry or direct retro transaction canceled by the UCPath Center during cutover to go-live must be re-entered by department transactors. The UCPath Center notified initiators of cancelled transaction details in November.
