The new guidelines will maintain accountability and decrease the amount of time spent tabulating and litigating. The guidelines pertain to payroll documentation, time distribution records, standards for time distribution records, substitute systems for meeting requirements, written requests for guidance, professional standards, consequences of failure to meet requirements, and continuing review. The guidelines are effectibve on issuance. (LMI)
