Payroll Cost Transfers

Payroll Cost Transfer is the process used to change the FAMIS account(s) on a paid salary. The document is commonly referred to as a PCT.

Payroll Cost Transfers are created in the PCT module in Canopy. Departments may create PCT for any employee adloc-ed to their department. The PCT is then routed through departments and administration for approval.
