Running the Employee Funding Becoming Inactive Report in HRS


You can run a PeopleSoft HRS report to list funding rows (from the employee's Funding Data Entry page) where the Project/Grant or funding Department will become inactive over a specified future date range. This information allows you to be proactive if you need to change the employee's Appointment-level funding before it becomes invalid.

Process Considerations:
  • If Department-level funding will become invalid during the specified date range, a Department-level funding row displays at the end of the alphabetical list of employee names
  • If Position-level funding will become invalid during the specified date range, a Position-level funding row displays at the end of the alphabetical list of employee name
