Note: To obtain additional detailed information about the SFMA tables, please refer to the 'Datamart and Hyperion: Back to Basics Manual' (page 2-16 through 2-22), in pdf form, shown in the 'Datamart Training' section of this website.Join-Diagram2013

R*Stars Actuals at the Budget Level
- R*Stars integration established a one-to-one relationship between the ORBITS Cross-Reference number and the R*Stars Program Code; providing a link between budget (ORBITS) and accounting (R*Stars).
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:
- 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.
Datamart table reference lists
These lists detail the fields available in each of the OSPA Datamart's six major tables. For a Master List of all available fields, see the last portion of this section.
*This table was created for the ACA data to help agencies view all agency ACA info.
**This table was created for DAS OSPS statewide unit only.
***This table was created to provide historical data for various OSPS fields not contained on other OSPS Datamart tables, specifically the 'Final Check Issued date', 'Final Check Period End Date', and the 'Retirement Date' from the P010 screen in OSPS.
Table extensions reference
Each of the OSPA Datamart tables has historic data available from 07/01/11 to current.
Please note: As of Aug. 11, 2017, four tables have been combined to one, eliminating three extra file extension views (i.e. OSPS_DED vs. OSPS_DED_B, OSPS_DED_PB, and OSPS_DED_PP).
It will be important to update your queries that are using the old file extensions (_B, _PB, and _PP). These queries must be updated to point to the OSPS table with no file extension. Make sure to go into the properties of the table (double click on the top of the table) and alter the 'physical name' to contain no extension.
With this change, it has become more important to make sure each OSPS query has at least two filters. One is 'Agency' and the other is a time period such as 'Pay Period End', 'Pay Proc Date', etc. These two filters will allow your query to run at its optimal level.
