Change to Direct Deposit Enrollment Process - Coming Soon...

posted Jan 29, 2016, 7:09 AM by David Ray

The State Auditor's Office is undertaking a project to enhance the accounting interface from our Payroll system to our Financial system (WOLFS).  As part of this process we are evaluating the recommended best practices for our software application.  One of the issues that has come out of that review is the accounting for our employee's Net Pay Distribution.

Currently, we enroll our employees in direct deposit using the NPD (Net Pay Distribution) document for their primary account and using the MISC (miscellaneous deductions) document for any additional checking/savings direct deposit(s) to secondary account(s).  This is not inline with the recommended best practices within our software application for the payroll accounting interface.

As a result, we will be making a change to our direct deposit enrollment process.  This change will take affect following the February payroll.  We will be enrolling our employees (primary/secondary accounts) in direct deposit using the NPD document.  We will no longer be using the MISC document to enroll employees in direct deposit for their secondary accounts (additional checking/savings accounts).  The lone exception for the MISC document will be the HSA (Health Savings Account) deduction.  This direct deposit will still be maintained using the MISC document, as it is today.

In conjunction with this new business process we will also be making a policy change.  As a result of this change in process an employee must have a primary account in order to establish the direct deposit to any secondary account(s).  So, moving forward each employee must either be all direct deposit (including primary & secondary accounts) or no direct deposit at all.

We will be providing training material/procedures for using the NPD document to maintain these secondary accounts very soon.  Please look for an announcement via e-mail to our Payroll users e-mail distribution list in the coming days.

Office Relocation and Coordination

posted Oct 22, 2015, 3:08 PM by David Ray

The State Auditor's Office is relocating to 2020 Carey Avenue due to the Capitol Renovation and Restoration project. SAO offices will be located on the 8th and 9th floor.  The Fiscal Management Division (WOLFS, Payroll, Vendor & UMB Help Desks) division will be located on the 8th floor beginning October 28th and we expect the move to be complete by November 2nd.  
  
We will be monitoring all of our help desks and running normal operations throughout the move.  However, we ask for your patience during the move as responses to your emails and phone calls may not be as prompt as we would like. There will be periods of time where specific staff will have limited access to phone and email.  During the move the best way to contact us is via email at saopayrollhelpdesk@wyo.gov.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

As a reminder the mail boxes will be moving to our new location on Monday, October 26th.  As a result, all drop-off's and pick-up's need to go through the Front Desk (Room 114) at our current offices in the State Capitol Building for the period from Friday, October 23rd (starting at 2pm) through Tuesday, October 27th.  The mail boxes will be available at our new location on Wednesday, October 28th.

The entrance is located on the south side of the building through the door at the bottom of the ramp (see attached for a detailed diagram).  To access the mailboxes please use this entrance and take the elevator or stairs to the second floor.  We have attached a floor plan of the second floor to highlight the location of the mail boxes.  We will also post signs to clearly mark the location.

Please keep in mind that this location also contains private businesses. So out of respect for the bank specifically please try to avoid/limit foot traffic in the bank's lobby.  Our offices will be accessible through the elevator/stairs without having to enter the bank's lobby.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this process.
