CAPS Deadlines

Standard Timeframes depicts the standard 4-week cycle that determines timeframes for submitting and validating casual timesheets in CAPS.

Please be aware that some areas of the University may set internal deadlines requiring earlier submission of timesheets in order to better facilitate timely payment.

Casual staff members are advised to check whether alternative deadlines apply in their local school or branch of employment.

  • Standard timeframes

    Timesheet validators receive an email prompt early on Tuesday morning to log into SSO and validate timesheets; a reminder email will be received on the following day if any timesheets have not yet been validated.

    If timesheets are not validated by 5:00pm Wednesday, the validation tasks will escalate to the timesheet validator's supervisor with an email prompt for each timesheet requiring validation.

    • **If timesheets are not validated by the Wednesday 5:00pm deadline, the validation tasks will escalate to the Timesheet Validator's supervisor with an email prompt for each timesheet requiring validation.
