Q&A: Monthly payroll to be paid on time, and other issues



Will August monthly payroll be on time?

August monthly pay ran as normal and will be paid on Aug. 31. There should be no disruption for direct deposits or for those receiving hard-copy paychecks. August timekeeping data was used for this month’s payroll, as entered and approved prior to the outage.

Has the outage affected the processing of annual merit pay?

No. Most data was already loaded to the system before the disruption to our computer systems. Merit pay changes do not take effect until Sept. 1 for the Sept. 30 pay date (for monthly paid employees). The University Payroll Office will monitor the situation based on the duration of the system outage.

Business systems and deadlines

Will the end-of-month deadline for Concur (PCard and expense reporting) be extended?

The Concur system is now accessible at Concursolutions.com. Enter your full umich email address, click ‘Next’ and then click ‘Sign in with SSO.’ The Shared Services Center is currently up-to-date on expense approvals. PCard approvals can be extended for one week. Please note that expense payments are not yet being processed.

Are the benefits elections of new or newly eligible employees affected?

Eligible faculty, staff and students who were unable to complete elections by their 30-day enrollment deadline due to the system outages will be provided with additional time. Affected individuals will be notified by email with instructions for completing their benefit elections.

On-campus internet access

When will the internet be accessible in administrative and academic buildings?

Information and Technology Services is working continuously to restore access safely. The latest updates on restoration of wired and WiFi internet access on campus will be found on the U-M Gateway and by following U-M ITS on X (Twitter) @umichTECH.

For current information and announcements, got to the U-M Public Affairs Key Issues page where you will also find information specifically for U-M employees.
