Further to our message on January 19, 2016, below are the detailed process instructions with respect to the ATB retroactive increase for UFTA. A summary of the salary and benefits agreement for Faculty and Librarians can be found in the January 22nd Provost Digest.

Please note that the retroactive ATB increase for UTFA will be processed in the months of February and March respectively. Below are the instructions and procedural documentation for the retroactive ATB increase to be processed in February. A separate communication will be sent with the instructions and procedural documents for Retroactive ATB increase to be processed in March.

In February 2016, the ATB is for July 1st, 2014 and January 1st, 2015. Please run the Data Verification Report and UTFA ATB Exception and Update Report for your respective Organizational Units to view and correct the records with warnings and errors. This will ensure that records with data integrity issues can be corrected and included in the automatic update taking place on February 5th, 2016. Please note that some of the exceptions may have to be processed manually.

Below are links to the timeline and the process for retroactive ATB Increase along with the Procedural and Support Documentation:
