Other Updates & Reminders:

Retros

Effective 6/8/2020, there was a new process for handling retro triggers for FTE increases. The Retros Operations Alignment Slides have been updated to be more clear regarding this change (slides 20 & 21 were added). The new process streamlines the processing of these types of off-cycle requests and ensures that accruals/ACA balances are adjusted accordingly.

  • Under the new process, Management Approval is no longer required to cancel retro triggers for FTE increases - all off-cycles received for FTE increases will be scheduled for processing as any other off-cycle request that is submitted correctly.
  • The Off-Cycle Team will no longer be reaching out to Management for approval to cancel the retro trigger or reaching out to the Retro Team to request cancellation of triggers for FTE increases.
  • The Retro Team will cancel such triggers as they identify them per their processes.
