Details on financial transactions beyond normal workload
The number of financial transactions beyond the normal workload has decreased by 10,000, from February 17 to March 31, 2021. Note that this dashboard represents three pay periods.
Reductions will, at times, be followed by slower progress or even increases. Since its peak in January 2018, the number of financial transactions beyond the normal workload has decreased by 290,000, from 384,000 to 94,000.
While the exact number fluctuates daily, it is estimated that almost half of public servants are experiencing some form of pay issue (including those served by the Pay Centre as well as non-Pay Centre departments). There are currently approximately 261,000 transactions ready to be processed at the Pay Centre, including:
- 174,000 transactions with financial impact, which include:
- 94,000 beyond our normal workload, and
- 80,000 that are part of our normal workload
- 45,000 transactions with no financial impact, or general inquiries
- 6,500 collective agreement transactions
- 35,500 transactions waiting to be closed for which employees have already received payment
In addition, the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer (OCHRO) collects pay transaction data from a subset of the 53 departments and agencies that are not served by the Pay Centre. For the March 13, 2021 reporting period, OCHRO provided data from 26 reporting departments and agencies, representing 98,884 individuals. They reported 22,248 transactions greater than 30 days old. These transactions are not necessarily pay problems, but rather the number of pending pay transactions.
