Business Office

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute Business Office coordinates and supervises all business aspects of the college’s academic departments, schools, and administrative units. We serve as the link between academic departments and other areas of the Treasurer's Office. We seek to partner with the college community to support learning, discovery, and engagement by delivering quality business and financial services, and efficiently and effectively providing stewardship of college and department resources.  Read more about the Treasurer's Office here.

Winter Recess Payroll Deadlines

Due to the early BW payroll time entry deadlines, working time for employees from December 21 through December 27 should be estimated as we have done in the past with early payroll writes. Employees who record time on a timecard or enter duration hours in Kronos should complete their entire timecard for the BW 1 pay period (12/14 – 12/27) using estimates/their best guess of their hours through the end of the pay period.   This estimated time will need to be recorded prior to leaving work on the employee’s  last  scheduled day prior to December 21st , or by the deadline set by your department. Employees recording their time using timestamp in the Kronos system will need to have their estimated hours entered in to the Kronos system by the area. This estimated time will also need to be entered by the department by December 21st.
