In the future journals will post as they come in, with direct retros and off-cycle payments being processed several times a week. Right now we are experiencing numerous data issues with UCPath delivered journals and we have to manually fix them which is a time consuming process. Due to this, we will post all journals on a bi-weekly and monthly cycle through May. As we resolve these issues we are hoping to be able to post once a week. Once the issues are resolved the journals will post automatically as they come in.
CBR was assessed on PostDoc Fellows (title code 3253) in March 2019. Previously PostDoc Fellows have been exempt from CBR based on Berkeley’s policy. CBR is now managed by OP and is processed in UCPath. Per discussion with OP, Berkeley was allowed to continue excluding PostDoc Fellows from CBR assessment through FY19. To reverse March assessment, we recorded a manual reversing journal in March and will update the subsidiary table in BFS for the system journal to post correctly in April. We requested a configuration change in UCPath to fix this issue and it was implemented.
UCPath has standardized Z-coded compensations system-wide. For a list of all new Z Earn Codes, please see the list of Earn Codes CBR Exclusion. We are working with other UC's and UCPath to address the Academic Stipend vacation assessed issue. Since this is a system-wide issue it will take some time to address.
UCPath has standardized the CBR and Vacation assessments. If an Earn Code is assessed CBR than then it will likely be assessed Vacation. Please note that CBR is assessed on salary net of vacation taken.
