FYI, this morning I received the following email…


The Web-GAAP application may be unavailable at times this weekend.  There may be brief outages, most likely Saturday, October 26th.  During this time the servers will be migrated to new hardware.  An email will be sent when the system becomes available.  Feel free to contact gaap[at]nwoca[dot]org if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Jodi Becher

Five Year Forecast Submission

New USAS Report

A new report has been created to assist districts in determining if they have employees that will exceed 30 hours per week or 130 hours per month and therefore be classified as full-time under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

This report will use the existing "retire hours" functionality built into the software to facilitate this tracking and reporting.  Retire hours can be used to track all employees, not just those reportable to SERS (even though that was the original intent).

In addition to the tracking accomplished via the payroll process adjustments to the calculated retirement hours are also possible using USPSCN/ATDSCN by entering an entry with a type of "AD" and a category of "RH".

The AFFORD program will track employees hours for the given measurement period and determine if an employee is considered full-time.

To access the report simply type AFFORD at your Reflections menu prompt.
