06/08/2015: Retro Re-Distribution Process
Effective with the June 22nd semi-monthly payroll, retro redistributions for all pay groups will now be processed with each payroll cycle.
UTA Flow forms completed and approved prior to the UTA Flow Form Deadline date, noted on the payroll calendar, will be processed with that payroll cycle.
An additional run for retro redistributions will be processed during the week between the two semi-monthly payroll runs. Specific dates for this additional run are now included on the payroll calendar.
The changes to salary expense resulting from the retro redistribution process will be posted to the cost center/project through a separate payroll journal identified as a “reallocation journal” for easy identification.
The payroll calendar can be accessed at the following: https://www.uta.edu/business-affairs/payroll/payroll-processing-dates.php

10/17/2014: Statement of Account
The Statement of Account (SOA) is an official listing of all financial activity posted to a Cost Center or Project.
The reconciliation process is a comparison of the SOA to departmental records. Reconciliation should be performed on a monthly basis. This process is necessary to make sure that expenditures charged and revenues collected by the department were properly approved and applied to the correct Cost Center or Project. Any differences revealed by the reconciliation process should be promptly pursued and resolved in a timely manner. The process of reconciliation ensures the accuracy and validity of financial information.
09/20/2011: UTShare introduces new logo, slogan, and key messages
COLLABORATIVE ENERGY: Two concentric circles joined together, running through one another, create an unending path that evokes reliance, while subtly alluding to the atomic unit and the creation of energy. The assignment of color designates one ring as that of "UT" and the other as the project "Share" and how they are transparently interconnected.
UTShare has adopted the logo above, which will be used to provide additional recognition for the PeopleSoft Implementation project.
Additionally, the following slogan and key messages will be shared with the community:
UTShare: Solutions to Support Unlimited Possibilities
- Partnering to create a unified HR and Finance solution
- Gaining cost efficiencies through economies of scale
- Streamlining business processes to improve service delivery
- Providing access to information to facilitate decision making
