Out of Cycle Payment Guidelines

Reason for Guidelines: This procedure was put in place due to audit concerns surrounding the controls, justifications, regulations and business practices that are put at risk when issuing an out-of-cycle payment.

Request Process: Any requests for out of cycle payroll payments must be made to the Associate Vice President for Financial Affairs by the Dean/Vice President/Hospital Chief Operating Officer employing the individual. Communication is normally handled via email to Patricia Raczynski, trish@uab.edu with a copy to Tim McMinn, tim@uab.edu .

Justification for Payment: Generally, out of cycle payments will be made only when an employee receives less than 50% of what they should have received in the normal payroll cycle and the discrepancy resulted because of an Oracle system or Central Administration issue.

Method of Payment: The payment is usually wired and memo posts on the next banking business day and deposits that night.
