The State Controller's Office administers a uniform state payroll system for state agencies and the California State University campuses, including Cal Poly Pomona. The employment and payroll files for Cal Poly Pomona employees are maintained within the State Controller's Office (SCO).

Based upon appointment and/or employment transaction data received from Faculty Affairs, Human Resources, and personal data from individual employees, Payroll Services reports various changes as the basis for updating the employment and payroll files. Payroll Services processed approximately 53,024 pay transactions in FY 2005/2006, along with 17,483 leave accounting transactions, and 1,410 personal data updates (address changes, tax exemption changes, name changes, etc.).
