Department Guide To Find Returned and Pending Payroll Redistributions in PeopleSoft

The ORSPA Fiscal Oversight Team (FOT) has identified a large number of payroll redistributions in PeopleSoft that have been returned to the submitter and are awaiting department action. Beginning the week of March 2nd, FOT is going to begin clearing out theReturned payroll redistributions queue.   Any old redistributions in Returned status will be denied, which will completely remove them from the PeopleSoft system.

As best practice, units are advised to check PeopleSoft for returned redistributions and redistributions in your approval queue once a week. Instructions on how to find returned redistributions and how to check for redistributions requiring your approval are included below (click here for PDF version of the instructions).

How To Find Returned Redistributions

  1. Sign into PeopleSoft
  2. Go to Classic Home
