The Business Services Department is responsible for all financial and business activity employed in the operation of the school system. This includes budgetary and financial accounting, budget preparation and oversight, budget forecasting, grant administration, payroll, purchasing, accounts payable, billing and building accommodation planning and coordination with the Connecticut State Department of Education. This office is also responsible for administering employee benefits along with many state and federal compliance requirements.
The Payroll Department handles over 1,000 active employees including certified and non-certified staff, substitutes, tutors, coaches and system-wide employees. Payments must also be made for such payroll-associated costs as state teacher's retirement, Wallingford municipal employees' retirement, union dues, tax shelter annuities, and other deductions.
The district uses the Tyler-Munis financial software to process payroll, purchase orders, pay vendors, and record budget transactions. The Business Office will process, record and track approximately 30 million dollars in payments this year.
