FPS Adding CFR Codes to Support Staff

P7 Link

Before selecting the P7 Link there are some house-keeping requirements that schools will need to undertake within SIMS Personnel. Each staff member’s contract must be linked to a CFR code; this is a simple process but will take some time to complete, as it requires manual updating of each staff members open contract. At the same time as updating these details schools must also check their data to ensure that all information within SIMS is up-to-date and correct.

FMS also provides a staff list at cost centre level within Salary Projections, see screen shot below:
