Summary:
Payroll processing schedule changes due to the SHARP/SMART Upgrades and the November 2015 holidays

This informational circular addresses key dates and changes in SHARP as a result of the PeopleTools upgrade to version 8.54 and the SMART upgrade to version 9.2 beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, 2015.  In addition, Wednesday, November 11, 2015 (Veterans' Day), Thursday, November 26, 2015 and Friday, November 27, 2015 (Thanksgiving Holiday) are designated holidays and therefore no batch jobs are scheduled for those nights. 

Due to the SHARP PeopleTools upgrade, SMART upgrade and the holidays in November, changes are required to the ‘normal’ payroll processing schedule.  Agencies are asked to note the payroll processing schedule due dates, some of which are occurring on a different day of the week than normally scheduled.  Please review carefully the information contained in this circular and in the attached partial calendar.
