MAGIC & SPAHRS System Maintenance- Posted 7/16/2018
DFA recently purchased new MAGIC hardware to replace the hardware implemented seven years ago. Hardware is the technical equipment that runs the MAGIC software. The new hardware should allow MAGIC to run faster, allow for future growth, and provide real-time disaster recovery replication. Once implemented, there should be no changes in MAGIC functionality.
In order to implement the new hardware, MAGIC & SPAHRS will be down starting at 3:00 PM on Friday, August 3, 2018. Both systems will not be available until Monday, August 6, 2018. You will be notified when the systems are available.

Important – Browse Adjustments Approved – Posted 06/22/2018
On the Browse Adjustments Approved screen, path PA AP AB BD, we have added a field to indicate whether the adjustment is marked for supplemental. When preparing to run a supplemental, please review this listing so you will be aware of what adjustments will be processed. We would also suggest reviewing this browse after the supplemental has paid to see if anyone was missed. There are agencies with adjustments for paying overtime, unused leave upon separation, insurance refunds, and additional time owed that were approved but never paid because someone forgot to mark it for supplemental. If someone is no longer employed with your agency, an approved adjustment cannot be processed on a regular payroll. These adjustments need to be paid on a supplemental. If you have trouble marking the adjustment for supplemental, contact MASH for assistance.
Contract WIN Reminder – Posted 06/19/2018
If a different contract/WIN is used for a contract worker in the new fiscal year (FY2019), remember to separate the contract worker from the old WIN prior to hiring the contract worker into the new WIN.
