Payroll Optimization with SAP HCM PAYROLL EXECUTION FOR 180,000 PAYMENT CASES Modern payroll execution and audit-compliant further development with FIS/hrd

IPEMA® Service Center (ISC) in the Regional Financial Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate SUCCESS STORY OF A CUSTOMER PROJECT

The IPEMA® Service Center (ISC) in the Regional Financial Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate is responsible for the maintenance and further development of the SAP HCM-based IPEMA HR management system. The adjustment of table contents, payroll schemas and rules as well as the audit-compliant documentation of versions are complex processes. For about 10 years, ISC has been using the FIS/hrd Schema and Rule Analyzer (SRA) as well as the FIS/hrd Copy Compare Convert (CCC) copy and comparison tool. Since that time, ISC and FIS have been cooperating successfully. By means of these tools, it is easier to maintain and control payroll or time management structures and further develop them in an audit-compliant way. FIS/hrd provides for a significantly reduced workload for ISC users and supports them in quality management.

Regional Financial Authority of Rhineland-Palatinate 

The Regional Financial Authority (RFA) is responsible for making salaries payable as well as for the accounting of travel expenses, separation allowance, relocation costs and subsidies (“Beihilfe” in Germany) for medical expenses of officials, employees and pension recipients of Rhineland-Palatinate. With more than 600 employees, the RFA is one of the largest “payroll offices” in Rhineland-Palatinate and coaches some 180,000 civil servants. The total payout volume amounts to approx. 7.1 billion EURO (almost 40 % of the Land budget). The RFA field of responsibility also includes the tasks of the Restitution Office. Moreover, it is also responsible for the Service Center of the countrywide integrated IPEMA® HR management and payment payroll system. 

Audit compliance and highest data quality THE FIS/hrd SCHEMA AND RULE ANALYZER

By using the FIS/hrd Schema and Rule Analyzer (SRA), adjustments in an SAP HCM-based system will become audit-compliant. The software solution saves each change in the control of payroll runs in a traceable way. In the course of audits, ISC can therefore call the data again at any time and show differences. This guarantees maximum control in the field of payroll runs. The note function of FIS/hrd SRA enables a complete documentation of the objects: they are automatically versioned upon transport release. The versions are created prior to each payroll for audit and subsequent analysis. Furthermore, they are used for matching before SAP service packs are imported. Due to the version options, it is possible to trace at any time what changes have been carried out within the system. 

“It is very important for us to be able to see at any time what has been changed in the system. This minimizes the error risk and makes us audit-compliant.”
