The data on the Certification Documents comes from the Texas A&M University System’s payroll system (BPP).
All institutional base pay is collected from that system and loaded into the time and effort system. The institutional base pay help topic has complete documentation on items included and excluded.
Notes on Texas A&M Research Foundation Payroll
When employees work on sponsored activities that are administered by the Texas A&M Research Foundation, they are typically paid on “clearing” accounts that exist on the the employees home system member’s books. These payroll payments are then collected, distributed, and posted to the TAMRF books to the correct contract or grant account(s).
In order to keep from showing a duplicate payment, payments from the TAMRF books are used in the Time and Effort system. Payments made to employees from these “clearing” accounts are not included on the certification documents.
