Special Premium Payment Project

More than $51 million in special premium payments (SPP’s) were processed through the University’s payroll in fiscal 2022-23, with $41 million of this amount issued for appointments within the Faculty of Health Sciences. Improving the SPP processes is expected to ensure proper controls and approvals are in place for payment while also helping to support pay accuracy issues.  

The discovery phase of the SPP project is complete, capturing a comprehensive understanding of how the SPP process is used to execute several types of payments. Work to date has included significant user consultations with departmental, financial, and HR administrators. This project will advance to design and build in summer of 2023, with the new SPP eForms targeted to be launched in Fall 2023.
