OSPA tables

The OSPA Datamart contains data processed through the Oregon Statewide Payroll Application. Data is updated monthly following the close of the payroll month, which is around the 14th of the following month. Check the OSPS Processing Calendar for specific dates.
 
The OSPA Datamart contains individual employee payroll information including:
  • Deductions
  • Job Status
  • Labor Costing
  • Leave Accrual
  • Gross and Net Pay Detail
  • Work Schedules
  • Custom Reports.  Just about anything you can think of can be queried from the OSPA Datamart and customized to your specific needs. Do you need to complete a PERS salary breakdown? How about finding out how often someone uses sick leave? Curious about usage statistics for parking? All of these and much more can be queried from the OSPA Datamart.
  • Identify Errors.  Use the OSPA Datamart to query for specific pay or deduction codes that give you troubles. For example, use the OSPA Datamart to ensure that each SEIU union deduction code has an accompanying issues code. Or, query to ensure that insurances are being forced using post-tax rather than pre-tax plan codes.
  • Monitor for Potential Abuse.   The OSPA Datamart is ideal for doing spot queries to ensure that usage of pay codes fall within normal tolerances. For instance, you can run a query on a specific class to enquire about comp time accrual, then measure that against an expected average. Or, query specific employee groups for abnormal overtime usage.

    The OSPA Datamart does not contain:

  • Confidential Information, such as Social Security numbers, wage withholding/garnishment info, bank account information or certain insurance surcharges
  • Data sourced from other applications such as salary range or employee addresses
  • Detailed daily time information if not using Online Daily Time or eTime.
