Labor Accounting Access

LAST UPDATED: February 15, 2018

What You Should Know

LA system access for users is based on:

  • Home department combined with staff class. The "Home" department is the department with administrative oversight for the employee or graduate student.
  • Charged department combined with staff class. The "Charged" department is the department named in the funding chartstring for supporting the individual's salary.

Labor Accounting system security is managed separately from Prime Financials (PeopleSoft). To gain access to LA, complete the Labor Accounting Access Form and send it to the Office of Finance and Treasury for processing.

Access to the Information warehouse Labor Accounting data and reports is determined by the Warehouse user's Labor Accounting security. A report user may also see aggregated salary data (for example, a payroll total) in a Warehouse Financial report, based on the report user's Department, Program, and Project access. Prime (PeopleSoft) access along does not provide access to Labor Accounting individual salary data or reports.

Basic LA approval workflow for changes to an individual's Commitments or Distributions is based on Home department with staff class and Charged department with staff class.
