An “Adloc” is a term that has been used for many years by the TAMUS Payroll System (BPP).
The term is a short name for “Administrative Location” – which is more or less the same as a department code.
Adlocs are formatted as follows:
where XX is the System member code (02 = TAMU, 08 = TEES, etc.)
and YYYYYY is a 6 or 7 digit number. This number is often the same number as the department’s primary FAMIS account number. The payroll office can adopt a different numbering system.
