Payroll obligations for FY22

May 12, 2021

To prepare for FY22 payroll obligation creation, please review the reports Find Position Restriction Costing Allocations - Yale and Find Workers Costing Allocations by Home Cost Center - Yale to confirm that all workers have costing allocations at least through the end of FY22 at one level of the costing hierarchy. Payroll costing allocations for active, filled positions must be in place for the entire base year when obligations are created in July. Costing allocations must coincide with the first day of payroll in the new base year, which may differ from the position start date.

For example: For FY22, workers paid weekly must have a costing allocation start date of June 27, 2021, or prior, and must end no sooner than June 30, 2022.

Payroll obligations for the base year FY22 will be created on the weekend of July 17, 2021.


  • For positions created through Position Management: When a Position Restriction is in place for the full base year, costing is not required at the worker level. Position Restrictions should not have an end date.
  • For positions created through Job Management:  A worker level costing allocation for the full base year is required.
  • Take action on your Inbox tasks to assign costing allocations that originate through Human Capital Management (HCM), even if the position is a future fill.
