Defect: BX Unit Settlement Expense Charged to Incorrect FAUs

A UCLA Blue swatch

We recently spoke with the UCPath Center about an issue where settlements paid to BX unit employees were charged to department FAUs instead of UCOP. Since this was not the intention for these payments, they will need to be corrected.

Here are some key points about the defect and the fix:

  • The defect only impacts the funding sources for those payments, it did not impact employees. The employees who were supposed to receive a settlement payment did receive the payment. 
  • CRU: UCLA's Payroll Partner will fix this issue centrally. Our General Ledger team will process the appropriate salary cost transfers on your behalf to ensure that these costs do not remain on your department funds.
  • The GL team will need to process these transfers manually, so the impact may not be visible on your GL reports until the end of the month.

The UCPath Center and UCOP will meet to identify how these charges were erroneously distributed. We expect that they will collectively put controls in place to prevent similar issues in the future.
