Payroll/Personnel Processing Cycle

The payroll/personnel processing cycle consists of the entry and release of payroll/personnel data by the Agency for processing through PPS. As transactions are transmitted, NFC processes them through its internal systems PINE, Time and Attendance Validation System (TIME), Payroll Computation System (PAYE), and Bi-Weekly Examination Analysis and Reporting System (BEAR). The table below shows when these systems run during the processing cycle.
