Report on the Payroll System. MORE: Management Operations Review & Evaluation.
Doody, Robert J.; And Others
Designed to improve the long-term operational efficiency of the Montgomery County, Maryland, Public Schools (MCPS) payroll system, this study begins with an executive summary, including a set of recommendations and a chapter-by-chapter synopsis. Following an introduction to the study and a general description of the payroll system in chapters 1 and 2, chapters 3 and 4 provide an evaluation of the system's set of internal controls and its relationship to the primary repository of employee information known as the Personnel Master File. Chapters 5 and 6 focus on Leave Accounting and Attendance Processing, which constitute the core of the payroll system; chapter 7 addresses the issue of multiple payroll cycles. Chapters 8-10 analyze other attendance processing issues, the benefits of direct deposit of an employee's pay, and the role of the Division of Payroll Operations. The study concludes with a chapter on strategies for the systematic implementation of its own recommendations. Proposals include consolidating MCPS's six existing payrolls into two payrolls and standardizing leave and attendance reporting to an hourly basis for all employees. (JBM)
