Financial transactions beyond normal workload

The number of financial transactions beyond the normal workload has decreased by 14,000, from September 30, 2020 to October 28, 2020.

While we expect the general downward trend of the last two years to continue, the number of transactions processed each month varies based on a variety of factors. Large reductions will, at times, be followed by slower progress or even increases. In 2019, the number of financial transactions beyond the normal workload were reduced by 81,000 and so far in 2020, have been reduced by 92,000.

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). In total, there are currently approximately 281,000 transactions ready to be processed at the Pay Centre, including:

  • 190,000 transactions with financial impact, which include:
    • 110,000 beyond our normal workload, and
    • 80,000 that are part of our normal workload
  • 46,000 transactions with no financial impact, or general inquiries
  • 10,500 collective agreement transactions
  • 34,500 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 October 28 reporting period, OCHRO provided data from 27 reporting departments and agencies, representing 92,131 individuals. They reported 26,318 transactions greater than 30 days old. These transactions are not necessarily pay problems, but rather the number of pending pay transactions.
